Below are some opportunities for you to get involved locally and globally at various levels with Calvary's Reach Global Missions:
MISSIONARY RESOURCE NETWORK
Could you provide our Calvary missionaries with free or discounted services: medical care, legal aid, accounting services, airline miles, auto repair, temporary or long term housing, piano lessons, or car use? Contact Jill Nielsen, in the Reach Ministries office if you can help. All information is kept confidential.
WWAM (WOMEN WITH A MISSION)
WWAM is a multi-generational group of women who gather on the third Thursday of the month at
9 a.m. and 7 p.m. (childcare available in the morning). Meeting with Calvary missionaries as they share their experiences, you’ll share in their joys, challenges, and sorrows, and learn to pray with a greater understanding. For more information contact Lynn Ahern, at in the Reach Ministries office.
UNDERSTANDING WORLD RELIGIONS CLASSES
Seminars, workshops and classes are offered throughout the year. You will discover how to share your faith, without offending, and yet get the salvation Message to your neighbors and those you are in contact with daily who believe differently from you. Watch the website and the Calvary Quarterly for class dates and times.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS MINISTRY
Graduate students at UCI are seeking friendship among Americans. Most have not had an opportunity to even eat a meal in the home of an American family. The goal is to introduce them to Christ, help them to become mature in their faith, and prepare them to minister on their return. Contact Gonzagas at
FUTURE MISSIONARY FOCUS
Individuals who are interested in missions and how to use their gifts to reach the world are invited to be a part of our Future Missionary Focus program. An initial meeting to go over the handbook, fill out an application, and ask questions allows each person a chance to begin the process. Those individuals who decide to commit to this process are placed with a mentor who will work with them for accountability on their progress. Contact Liz at to being the process.
SHORT TERM MISSION TEAMS: 2 - 3 WEEKS
Short Term Mission Teams consist of a minimum of four people who serve out of the USA in a missions experience of two to three weeks, enabling them to participate in cross-cultural ministry. All short term trips must be approved by the Missions Team. Most trips work in conjunction with Calvary missionaries and/or ministry partners. Contact Liz at for more information.
GUEST HELPERS – VACATION WITH A PURPOSE
People with handyman experience or at least a desire to learn, are encouraged to become a Guest Helper. This group accepts requests from our missionaries (both stateside and overseas) as well as other ministries, to come alongside to repair, restore, or build projects related to the work as well as minister to the missionary by their visit. Contact Bob VanderWall at to get connected.
SHORT TERM MISSIONS TRIP (INDIVIDUAL): UP TO 6 MONTHS
This is often a good first step when considering missionary service in your future. Individuals considering going on a short term trip may submit a request for one time financial help from the Missions Ministry Team. Call the Reach Global Ministries at 714-550-2341 for more information and an application form.
EXTENDED SHORT TERM (6 MONTHS - 2 YEARS) AND LONG TERM MISSIONARY (CAREER)
Calvary missionaries are ambassadors of Calvary Church, and must first go through the Discover Class, be interviewed by an Elder, approved for membership, and be actively involved at Calvary Church, before being considered for the missionary application process. Active participation in Calvary’s Future Missionary Focus program and other ministries of the church, as well as a working relationship with the Missions Ministry Team are necessary steps in the process. Members interested in becoming a Calvary missionary should contact Liz Gold, Reach Global Missions Director at and also become familiar with the Calvary Church Global Missions Policy.
