As you walk into the Liberty Chapel, you immediately see the wall dedicated to our Partners in Ministry. These mission agencies and para-church organizations are recognized by Calvary as partners of like faith and ministry, supporting each other in the Lord’s work.

Calvary University PartnersThese partner ministries currently have Calvary alumni serving with them in various capacities, and they continue to recruit more workers from Calvary. Calvary desires to network with many agencies and organizations in reaching the world for Christ. The following organizations have partnered in ministry, prayerfully and financially, with Calvary University.

Avant Ministries’ mission is to glorify God by helping others enjoy His presence through planting and developing new churches in the unreached areas of the world.
Brazil Gospel Fellowship
BGFM’s desire is to share, though its missionaries and ministries, the Gospel message of Jesus Christ to Brazilians.
Brazil Inland Mission
BIM’s focus is training Brazilians to train Brazilians in the areas of evangelism and establishment of national, self-supporting churches.
Child Evangelism Fellowship
CEF is a Bible-centered, worldwide organization that is dedicated to seeing every child reached with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, discipled, and established in a local church.
City Union Mission
CUM provides warm beds, nutritious food, and a place of safety for thousands of poverty-stricken and homeless men, women, and children.  Since 1924, the Mission’s staff has been uncompromising in our commitment to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the hurting and the lost.
The dream of the Crossworld team is to see disciple-makers from all professions bringing God’s love to life in the world’s least-reached marketplaces.
Got is a volunteer ministry of dedicated and trained servants who have a desire to assist others in their understanding of God, Scripture, salvation, and other spiritual topics.
IFCA International
It is the mission of IFCA International to glorify God by providing an arena for independent churches and organizations to participate interdependently in the common cause of advancing biblically authentic, dynamic, compassionate Christianity to all people groups.

Of the world’s 6,500 people groups, 2,500 are still unreached. New Tribes Mission helps local churches train, coordinate and send missionaries to these tribes.

SEND International
SEND’s focus and passion is to mobilize God’s people and engage the unreached in order to establish reproducing churches.
