Calvary Nexus Missions Ministry


Theme Verses:

“And Jesus came back and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’” (Matthew 28:19-20)


“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)





Focus geographically on strategic areas of Kingdom expansion, including Mexico, the Philippines, Germany, Australia, and Africa, by assisting Calvary Chapel-style ministries which are intentionally raising up pastors and leaders, planting bible teaching churches, and loving their neighbors. Identify, train, mobilize and support missionaries from our local church body to serve in local and international ministry.
