At Calvary, missions is a crucial component of the church. Matthew 28:19 commands and commissions us to "go and make disciples of all nations." We were created to enjoy God's grace in a relationship with Him, so that we may extend His glory locally, regionally, and globally.  Calvary has ongoing partnerships with missionaries that are making disciples all over the world, as well as partners serving closer to home. Each year a significant number of our Calvary family participates in mission trips and serves our community. God has called us to Live His Mission.
