Why Missions?

When we use the word “mission” we are referring to the Gospel work that Christ gave the church to accomplish. This work consists of proclaiming the Good News of salvation in Jesus to sinners at home and around the world. Those who die apart from responding in faith to the Gospel will perish in an eternal hell; therefore, we are committed to assuring this Gospel, which has saved us, is “proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations.”

       Gospel Motivations for Mission:
  • A desire to be obedient to the commands of God
  • A desire for the Glory of God among all peoples
  • A belief that God has children in every tribe, tongue and nation
  • A love for the lost and a desire to see them thrive in relationship with God and with others
  • A conviction that local churches are God’s appointed means of carrying the Gospel to the ends of the world

Of the population of Denver ninety-seven percent are unchurched, having never heard the Gospel clearly spoken to them. CalvaryDenver will be planted in a neighborhood of Denver where 14.2% of the population is foreign born and 14% live below the poverty line. In the streets and neighborhoods surrounding CalvaryDenver you will find clubs, liquor stores, halal markets, mosques and marijuana dispensaries. The need here is great and is obvious to any who has eyes and ears, but the potential is even greater than the need. We join with CalvaryDenver in praying that a movement of the Holy Spirit would begin in Denver and sweep over the Western US — all the way to the Pacific Ocean.

Summer 2020 - a great family trip!

Nicaragua BTI

There is only one country in the western hemisphere poorer than Nicaragua. After decades of revolutions and civil wars Nicaragua enjoys a remarkably peaceful and stable political situation. However, this stability has done little to positively effect the lives of the vast majority of Nicaraguans. Most Nicaraguans struggle to maintain a daily existence, so despair is commonplace. Despite their difficult circumstances, churches and pastors in Nicaragua have a thirst to know and understand the Scriptures better. The Bible Training Institute (BTI) exists to serve our sister churches by equipping them with theological education and resources they would otherwise not have access to. BTI accomplishes this by regularly hosting week-long semesters which over the course of three years covers the breadth of a seminary-level education. 

While BTI is focused on equipping the church, it serves as a hub for other ministries in the community. During the summer we will have VBS for children during the day and a conference for youth in the evening. By God’s grace BTI will in the future serve the community with medical/dental clinics, agricultural classes, technical training, etc.

Juan and Rachel Curling

Macedonian Christian Academy’s (MCA) service in the Rio Grande Valley(RGV) has spanned three decades. Our friends, Juan and Rachel Curling, have a passion for evangelism and discipleship and use their influence in the RGV to help MCA train up fully committed followers of Jesus. At MCA casual, comfortable Christianity is not an option. Rather, they desire to see not just students transformed by the power of the Gospel, but families and entire communities.

You can follow Juan and Rachel here.

Youth With A Mission is a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”), we unite in a common purpose to know God and to make Him known.

Back when we began in 1960, our main focus was to get youth involved in missions. Today, we still focus on youth, and we also involve people aged 9 to 90. We currently work in more than 1,100 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of over 18,000.

One of the joys of participating in YWAM is to work with people from many nations. YWAM’s staff (known as “YWAMers”) come from over 130 countries, including places like Indonesia, Nepal, Mozambique, and Colombia.
