Part of Calvary’s purpose is to "Reach Orange County and the world for Jesus Christ." Below are strategic church plants and partnerships helping to achieve that vision as we extend beyond 1010 N Tustin Avenue to see the influence of God's kingdom expand and celebrate more lives being changed by the life-giving message of Jesus.
The story of this church began in the fall of 2015 when a group of 15 people felt led by God to start a church in Irvine, CA. With the help of Calvary Church, "Prodigal Church" held its first official service on January 11, 2015. After 3 years of leadership shifts, unexpected location changes, the passing of key members, and so much more - they felt God calling them to something new with a move to Tustin.
With the call to move to Tustin, He also blessed them with a new mission. According to Pastor Matt Hemphill, "While we were praying about the move, we kept hearing the words 'new life' repeated to us. Overtime, we pressed in and asked God for clarity. We eventually discerned that God was commissioning us to breathe 'new life' into the city of Tustin. The 'new life' would be the gospel; and we would spread it through our words, actions, and love. And by us doing so, He would breathe 'new life' into us!" Click the link below to read more of their story and discover more about the ministry and mission of New Life.
Way of Peace Church
Since 2001, Calvary Church has been involved in Albania. Our first contact was through a linguist who came to Christ through a missionary living in Albania. Calvary has since helped print and distribute the New Testament in Albanian and has sent many short-term teams, from High School students to Calvary Elders, ever since.
During the 20th Anniversary of The Way of Peace Church celebration in August 2013, the seeds of a new sister church partnership began. Now, Calvary has begun helping Way of Peace Church in the following areas: leadership development and training, church planting resources, a variety of short term teams and community development.
