Through missions, Calvary Church is able to partner with people and organizations around the world in order to take the message of Jesus Christ to all people of the earth. Missions is the heartbeat of Calvary Church.

The following four activities describe how Calvary Church is involved in global missions:

Reaching – We are involved in local, national and international efforts to proclaim the Gospel to the spiritually lost through every available means. Our evangelistic efforts range from personal evangelism to large-scale evangelistic meetings. 

Planting – We are supporting efforts around the world to establish local churches. Our goal is to replicate growing, life-giving churches both locally and around the world. 

Equipping – We are helping to train leaders throughout the world to take the message of Jesus Christ to their own people and other nations. We support missionaries who teach or lead Bible schools around the world, as well as several Assemblies of God colleges and universities in the U.S. 

Caring – We are reaching out with the compassion of Jesus Christ to those who are hurting and in need. This year, we have several worldwide missions trips planned to help with disaster relief, orphanages, feeding and vocational training. Locally, we continue to offer a food pantry and a homeless-feeding ministry.

Missions Pledge

Missions pledges (formerly called Faith Promises) are used at Calvary Church to support missions. These are one-year commitments—from April 2017 through March 2018. A missions pledge is what a person agrees, after prayer, to give to missions as God enables—over and above a tithe.

Missions Pledge funds are used for:

  • Monthly support for more than 200 missionaries and missions organizations
  • Missions projects such as church buildings, equipment, vehicles, Bible schools, student tuition and disaster relief

If you would like to commit to a Missions Pledge this year, please use the link below.

Missions Trips


Calvary Church believes in the importance and power of missions. We take teams to other places of the world (and our own country) to tell people about God’s love, to lend a helping hand to an area in need and to encourage the missionaries, pastors and congregations who have been called by God to serve in those areas.
