MISSIONS - PERSIAN CHURCH - CHURCH IN THE PARK - CHURCH PLANT

Calvary Chapel is a "missions focused church". We believe that to effectively spread the Gospel it is vital to send missionaries and support missions throughout the world, in addition to participating in evangelistic outreaches in our own country and community. Presently, we support local churches and missions in various parts of the world.

Current Missionaries

Foreign Missions: The missions we support are involved in church planting, pastoral training, evangelism, and Christian education. We support missionaries and organizations that serve in the Philippines, Cambodia, East Asia, Indonesia, India, Japan, the Middle East, Wales, France, Mozambique, Ecuador, Mexico, Slovenia and Russia.

Home Missions: The missions here at home that we support are missionaries and organizations involved in pro-life health, camps for abused children, teaching and training teams to minister to Muslims, equipping parents & Christian teachers who have children in public schools, and providing support for incarcerated youth and their families.

Here is a list of our missionaries.  If you would like more information, please contact CCMV at (949) 951-9678 or contact the Mission's organization directly.
