Your Journey For The Nations

How will your life have an impact on the nations for the Kingdom?

There are many different ways you can find your role in Global Ministries, get involved, and live a life of disciples making disciples for the glory of God and expansion of the gospel.


Understanding the Great Commission
The great commission is recorded in Matthew 28:19-20: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” For more information on the great commission, please visit

Missions and The One Story of the Bible
Since the fall of man in the garden, God has had a plan to reach all nations through His people. To see more about the Bible as a Missions Story, please visit

Developing a Discipleship Relationship
We believe every disciple of Jesus should be in the process of becoming a disciple that makes disciples. We seek to make disciples by each being in intentional relationships for growth—relationships that go deeper than family ties, friendship, and shared interest but relationships that move us to become more like Christ. All of us have an opportunity to find someone who is ahead of us that we can learn from and someone we can help along in their journey as we continue on ours. In light of who God is and what he has done, we get to contribute not just here but in making disciples to the ends of the earth. Contact Jon Brady for more information at .

Getting Involved in Next Steps
Each of us is on a spiritual journey. What we share in common is the need to keep moving—taking intentional steps of faith. But everyone’s journey will look different—that’s why Calvary Church offers a variety of adult ministries to choose from. Our goal is to encourage and equip you to take your next step as you Pursue Life in Christ. Please visit for more information.

We encourage all of those who are part of our church family to give—not out of obligation, but out of a spirit of worship. Your gifts allow God's work to be done in our midst, in our community, and in the world around us. Global Ministry is one of four available funds that can receive a donation. Please visit to learn more.

Take the Perspectives Course
God has a "world-sized" role for every Christian in His global purpose. Whether people go to distant countries or stay at home is a secondary issue. The primary issue is what most people are hungry to discover: a vision to live a life of purpose. Discovering that vision makes this course valuable, and perhaps crucial, for any Christian.

Perspectives is a fifteen-week course designed around four vantage points or "perspectives" — Biblical, Historical, Cultural, and Strategic. Each one highlights different aspects of God's global purpose. For more information, please visit

Short-Term Ministry Trips
Throughout the year there are various opportunities to serve our global partners and other partnerships by serving, loving, and connecting through short-term ministries. Due to unpredictable, international travel restrictions and due to the COVID situations in many countries, short-term trips have been put on hold. For future information, please visit
