Every autumn, Calvary Church sets aside one week to change the world. This year, we are partnering with Beza International, a ministry that is creating a spiritual center in Ethiopia that will minister to political leaders of Africa and provide a ministry space for the community. Through our Week of Hope, we’re using prayer, the work of our hands, and generosity to provide life-giving help for those in need.

Join us as we give one week of our lives to change a lifetime for others!





Here's how you can help us support the many ways that Beza International is changing the world:

Dessert with Dr. Betta

Join us for an intimate time with Dr. Betta Mengistu, elder of Calvary Church and founder/overseer of Beza International. We’ll enjoy a complimentary dessert and hear about the vision God have him over 15 years ago and how that vision has taken shape to become the international ministry that is now Beza.


Worship Services with Pastor Zeb

Sunday, Oct. 20 | 9 & 11 a.m. | Sanctuary

Our Week of Hope will culminate with weekend worship services as we hear from Pastor Zeb Mengistu, senior pastor of Beza International. This is an amazing opportunity to hear first-hand how God is moving in Ethiopia through the influence of the Mengistu family and Beza International.


Beza International

"Redeeming Nations in Righteousness" 

Beza International is a young and vibrant congregation numbering in the thousands located in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It is made up of 40 different nations and centers around the Word of God. Every age, background, gender and language are united within its walls by the power of Christ. The ministry was begun by Dr. Betta and Pastor Zeb Mengistu with the vision of redeeming nations in righteousness. (In fact, the word "Beza" means "Redemption") Their strategy has been to create a spiritual center in the capital of Ethiopia that can influence Africa’s top leaders and spread to the entire continent. 

Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, is home to nearly four million citizens and is the headquarters of the African Union and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa. Beza has provided conference space and weekly fellowship to the nation's political elite. These conferences allow for Africa’s leaders to enter into important dialogue and diplomatic relationship around Christian principles. 

Our week of hope will support their new Africa Worship Center which will serve local congregants and international dignitaries.

The new worship center will provide 60,000 square feet of ministry space within a five-story building plus a two-story basement. The space will include classrooms, conference rooms, administrative offices and a state-of-the-art 5,000-seated sanctuary. All of this will allow the ministry to reach at-risk women and children with job skills and education, while serving the public through weekly worship services and events. The building will also house gatherings of international leaders from around the world. This provides the opportunity for these decision-makers to connect with Godly men and women and encourage them to lead in a God-honoring way.
