Global Missions & GO Trips

Calvary Church is committed to reaching the world for Christ! 

We currently support 81 missionary families who serve in 36 countries around the world. Calvary missionaries share the Gospel through personal ministry, Bible translation, planting churches, discipling believers, and training and equipping local believers to reach their own countries.

Global Outreach (GO) Trips provide opportunities for our Calvary family to participate in short-term missions projects around the world.

Below you'll find ways you can get involved in world missions projects and activities and ways you can support our missionaries through prayer.

    GO Trips
    Short-term Missions Trips

    Global Outreach Trips [GO Trips] offer Calvary members 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. Trips provide a life-changing opportunity to get involved in missions work and share the Gospel with those in another culture.

    Wayumi Expedition
    Tribal Missions Summer Camp

    Wayumi is a tribal missions camp experience for high school students! 

    Wayumi Expedition
    Tribal Missions Summer Camp
    July 17–22, 2022

    Wayumi Expedition participants will engage in a jungle-like setting in Pennsylvania, where Calvary students will be part of a larger group of 70. We will learn about language, culture, Bible translation, and evangelism from veteran missionaries. We'll spend afternoons competing in theme-based games based on what we learn each morning, as well as swimming and other fun activities. Evenings will be spent singing around the campfire and hearing the Word of God.

    Groups will stay in "Jungle Camp" — a woodland setting in rustic cabins. We will sleep in South American hammocks. Be sure to bring a sleeping bag because of the cool nights!

    • Calvary is covering the camp cost, but students should plan on bringing extra spending money.

    Join us and discover how you can help reach isolated people groups who have never heard the Gospel!
