Eastlake Church started in 1991, but still only had 150 members when Mike Meeks took over as the pastor in 1997. Since then it has exploded to more than 7,000 members, which Meeks attributes to the growth of Eastlake.
The church offers multiple times and two venues on its main campus. It also has satellite campuses in Imperial Beach, Mission Valley, Tijuana, Venice, Calif. and Salt Lake City.
It started a pre-school in 1999 that has 300 children. It offers a growth group network that operates in three semester a year, allowing people to sign up for specialty groups, such as men, women and sporting activities.
