Missions

Sharing the Gospel of Jesus

CONNECT • GIVE • GO

In the Great Commission, Jesus called His followers to make His name known throughout all the nations (Matthew 28:20).

But in the everyday busyness of life, it can be hard to know how to support missions – or even where to start.

At Calvary Nexus, we’re seeking to help people love God and their neighbors throughout the entire world – and we do that by supporting strategic ministries and missionaries who are intentionally raising up leaders, planting churches, and loving their neighbors both locally and internationally.

Get connected with our missionaries and find out how you can support the work that God is doing both in our community and around the world.
