MISSIONS : LOCAL & GLOBAL

The Missions Ministry equips and encourages our church family to minister in a global context, whether it’s through international or national mission trips, our Global Impact Conference, or Community Ministries. The goal of the Missions Ministry is for everyone attending Calvary to have a global vision and be involved in the life of at least one person in local or international ministry.

Perspectives is a multi-church partnership for all followers of Christ that can change the way you view the world around you. Clearly see the heart and purpose of God through biblical, historical, cultural, and strategic lenses. Learn how you can take part in His work wherever you go. A fantastic array of pastors, theologians, international missiologists and mobilizers will challenge and inspire you. Every background and life stage has a critical role to play! The course consists of a 15-week curriculum that will broaden your understanding of God’s purposes for each of us and how we are called to live a life on mission–whether at home or abroad.

UPCOMING MISSION TRIPS

Troika Business Mission Team Dates and team leaders for Troika Business Mission teams to Lviv, Ukraine are set for 2018. We will do all four courses next year. The dates and team leaders are:

Any Calvary businessperson with a heart for reaching other businesspeople for Christ in Ukraine are invited to inquire about joining one of these teams as instructors. We are especially looking for people in the 40-60 age ranges and women for sure. Our classes usually are 50% women participants. Solid business experience is a must, but the curriculum is already developed, so plugging in examples from your life is essential to the class instruction and interaction. Ukrainian interpreters are provided so opportunities to share with participants abound. The February team is complete and the May Finance team has one instructor opening. Please contact the team leaders for the May, September and November teams if you are interested.
