In 2019, we were challenged and encouraged to go “Across the Street and Around the World” seeing both our neighbors and the nations as places and people that Jesus came to reach. And, over $1 MILLION was generously and sacrificially given to support the work of life-changing ministry locally and globally.

A NEW FOCUS
In Fall 2019, Calvary's Reach Ministries introduced a new dual focus for funding strategic initiatives and partnership projects as we endeavor to reach Orange County and the world for Jesus Christ.
GOOD NEWS FOR EUROPE
We are focusing to reach the 98% of people of Europe who need Jesus. In 2019, we became an official church partner of Greater Europe Mission Agency and have a goal to raise up new missionaries and teams to reach the post Christian society and refugees in Europe.
Bibles for Everyone
Through your generosity to the Reach Missions fund, Calvary currently partners with 23 missionary families working on translation projects around the world, so that the 29% of the world without Bibles in their language can have one.
LIVING ON MISSION
As followers of Jesus, we live on mission reflecting His love and light by seeking justice, showing compassion, and sharing the good news of His kingdom with our neighbors and the nations. Where is God calling you?
EACH ONE REACH ONE
As part of Calvary’s vision to reach Orange County with the good news of Jesus, we were challenged as a church family to be praying, inviting and sharing the Gospel with at least one person in our circle of influence.
10:02 & CHOW
We were invited to pray daily at 10:02 for more “workers in the harvest” based on Luke 10:2 - that God would provide missionaries for Europe and use us here in Orange County. And, to pray for “C.H.O.W.” (courage, heart, opportunities and words to say to those who do not know Jesus).
