Missions   Resource  Connection

Calvary Missions Resource Connection is a ministry to missionaries and senders. Our primary goal is to provide missionaries with the information and resources that they need to enable them to fulfill the ministry God has called them to. In addition we work to equip pastors and senders with the information they need to support their missionaries as they prepare for the mission field, while they are living overseas, and upon their return to America.

 

While our primary focus is to missionaries and senders within the Calvary Chapel movement of churches, we welcome all to glean from this collection of missions resources.
