Using the book of Acts as our model, our mission is to equip and support those from our body whom the Lord has called to establish permanent locations where Christ is loved, revered and taught, reaching the lost and discipling new believers, to the glory of God.
Our vision is that God would raise up people in our fellowship whom He has gifted and equipped to establish and disciple new fellowships, either here in the US or outside our borders, teaching the Word and Christ crucified. But our vision MUST be God’s vision – This is His Church! We ask all in our body to stand with us and seek His will for this ministry through prayer and fasting. Also under the umbrella of Missions is Outreach and Evangelism. If you are looking for opportunities to join in an upcoming missions trip, contact Dave Adams or keep an eye out for announcements.
Missionaries and Outreaches we Support:
ADRIAN VAN VACTOR
Adrian is a Christian Illusionist, taking the Gospel around the world, intertwining his illusions with the Word of God. In fact, his art allows him entrance into many countries where few Christians will ever set foot. Very many of the areas that Adrian visits are ruled by a local shaman, or witch doctor, so one of his favorite tactics is exposing their “magic” for what is by demonstrating his ability to do the same thing, and showing how it Is done.
Anna is serving in the Kingdom of Cambodia with Potter’s Field Ministries and has been on that mission field for almost a year. Prior to that she ministered in Thailand for several years, and in both venues has focused on sharing the love of Jesus with the women of both nations. “May we continue pressing forward to advance the Kingdom of God into this fallen world. May we never give up. May we never surrender until the whole world hears! “
DENNIS AND LUCY SMITH – HANDS OF GOD
Prior to Dennis and Lucy serving in the White Mountain Apache nation, they had ministered in Mexico to the indigenous people there for many years. Their ministry is to provide for the physical and spiritual needs of the people they encounter, from building houses to building relationships, demonstrating the love of Christ in word and deed.
“God has called us to be His hands and feet in sharing His love!”

BEN AND BRIDGET
Ben and Bridget serve in a closed country as English teachers but also hold Bible Studies and spread the Gospel whenever possible. Because of the sensitive nature of their ministry we don’t post pictures or any other identifying information, but God knows who and where they are.
RUNNING LIGHT MINISTRIES
Running Light Ministries was formed in 2008 to help men and women find freedom, through Jesus Christ, from sexual impurity. There are men’s and women’s groups and resources for those enslaved to sexual sin, spouses of those who are in bondage, as well as resources geared specifically for teenagers.
A REASON FOR HOPE
The radio outreach of CCF, A Reason for Hope is a daily 1-hour call-in question and answer radio program hosted by Pastor Scott Richards, Sr. Pastor of Calvary Christian Fellowship. The program is directed by the listeners of the show, whose questions determine what direction the broadcast will take. The show originally aired on Sept. 11, 2001 as Sonrise Live, to help people in the greater Tucson area cope with the terrorist attacks that took place that morning.
LOVE THY NEIGHBOR MINISTRIES
Love Thy Neighbor Ministries is a Christ-centered, non-denominational organization that reaches out, through neighborly visits, to the residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities in our community. These are our Neighbors. Our mission is to show the love of God to our Neighbors by providing loving, caring, helpful and neighborly visits. Our vision is that every resident of an adult care facility in Pima County will have a loving, Godly visitor to call on them regularly

They have returned every year since then to visit and provide updates on their ministry, and have become part of our family.
