Sharing the Gospel of Jesus
CONNECT • GIVE • GO
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.
