Global Missions & GO Trips

Calvary Church is committed to reaching the whole world for Christ!

We currently support 80+ missionary families who serve in 36 countries around the world. Calvary missionaries are committed to sharing the Gospel through Bible translation, planting churches, discipling believers, and training and equipping nationals to reach their own countries.

Our missions program also features Global Outreach Trips. These GO Trips provide opportunities for our Calvary family to participate in short-term missions projects around the world. These trips often support partnerships with our Calvary missionaries.

    GO Trips
    Join a short-term missions team!

    Global Outreach Trips [GO Trips] offer Calvary members a unique short-term missions experience, usually lasting 10 days to two weeks. Frequently, Calvary GO Trips support one of our missionaries in the field.

    GO Trips are open to everyone — including middle and high school students, young adults, families, and seniors — providing a life-changing opportunity to get involved in missions work and share the Gospel with those in another culture.

    Perspectives Course:
    The World Christian Movement
    January 17 – May 9

    What is "Perspectives"?
     

    Presented by Frontier Ventures (formerly the US Center for World Mission), Perspectives is a 15-week course focused on educating believers on God's global purpose, structured through four vantage points or "perspectives" — Biblical, Historical, Cultural, and Strategic. Each session is taught by a different subject matter expert.

    The first two perspectives (Biblical and Historical) explore the historic facts of God's relentless work from the dawn of history until today. The latter two perspectives (Cultural and Strategic) highlight the spread of the Gospel around the world, demonstrating the breadth and depth of the Great Commission while reaffirming the "do-able" nature of the task and confirming our biblical and historical hope.

    Course meets at 6:30–9:20 PM on Tuesdays in the Banquet Room.

    Cost: $285 for reading level or $485 for college credit
    • $25 discount if registered by January 8
    • $50 discount for 2nd family member attending the same class
    • $100 rebate for Calvary members who attend 12 out of 15 classes
    • You may attend the first two classes free — but you will not be eligible for $25 discount
