Missions

Missions is the heartbeat of Calvary

Since 1967, we have been partnering with local and global missionaries and ministries to take God's message of hope around the world. Missions continues to shape who we are as a church as we reach beyond the four walls of our building to “go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation."

Because of international travel restrictions and safety protocols, our many missions trips have been put on hold. When it's completely safe to travel again, we can't wait to send our missions teams around the world.

Chicago city life center

We are proud to partner with Pastor Charles Moodie and Chicago City Life Center for outreach efforts that bless the people of the Englewood community in Chicago. In this season of COVID scarcity, we have helped deliver food and essential supplies to those most in need in and around the city.
Led by Pastor Charles and Kehinde Moodie, Chicago City Life Center has a vision that stretches beyond outreach ministry to a new whole-life ministry. It focuses beyond just the spiritual component of life—this ministry reaches every part of life.

Originally a small church plant sitting walking distance of the old Robert Taylor Homes, the church’s purpose was to bring the hope of the gospel to residents of the low-income community.

When Calvary heard about this vision, we purchased the 2.5 acres of land that the Chicago City Life now calls home. Today, we continue this partnership with our sister church through outreach initiatives throughout the year.
