REACH GLOBAL VISION

To see Jesus worshipped by all tribes, languages, peoples, and nations

 

 

OUR STORY


Established 1931

INITIATIVES

Through our strategic initiatives — Good News for Europe and Bibles for Everyone — along with our partnerships with our missionaries around the globe and their ministries, we aim to catalyze Calvary Church of Santa Ana through opportunities to learn about the nations, send, and go to make disciples of all nations.


BIBLES FOR EVERYONE

Extending a long history of Bible translation work that goes back to the founding of Wycliffe and SIL, Calvary's Reach Missions Fund currently supports 23 global partners working on translation projects, so that the 29% of the world without Bibles in their language can have one.


GOOD NEWS FOR EUROPE

We are focusing to reach the 98% of people of Europe who need Jesus. In 2019, Calvary Church became an official church partner of Greater Europe Mission and have a goal to raise up new missionaries and teams to reach the post-Christian society and refugees in Europe.

Perspectives

Perspectives is a fifteen-lesson education course exploring different aspects of God’s global purpose in a multi-faceted learning experience. The course examines the story of God fulfilling His promises from four vantage points or “perspectives” — Biblical, Historical, Cultural, and Strategic. You have an integral role to play in God’s story. He delights when His people respond to His invitation to be a blessing to all the peoples of the earth. Experience God’s heart for the nations and encounter the momentum of the World Christian movement through Perspectives. Check back for opportunities on the next class.

Parenting with
a Global Vision

This six-lesson course explores why consistently guiding your children towards God’s heart and purposes for the nations may be the most strategic investment you ever make. Together with other Calvary families, you’ll not only envision what it could look like to live out God’s global purposes with your children, but you’ll also discover how God can use your family to bless those who have no access to the good news of Jesus. Next course will be on Wednesdays at 7:00pm, starting November 1, 2023.

Give

Giving to the Reach fund is a primary way of blessing the nations. In Philippians 4 Paul clearly expresses that it is not the gifts he seeks, but rather the fruit that comes from those gifts. By giving you enable our missionaries to bear fruit, partnering to see the Gospel message go forward in joy and lives to be changed as God's kingdom grows.
