Missions

UNTIL THE WHOLE WORLD HEARS…

Calvary Chapel Lynchburg is deeply commited to obeying God’s commission to “go into all the world and preach the gospel.” This is done by assisting native believers who are working in their own countries and by sending missionaries to the foreign field for short and long term ministry. We encourage, fund, and provide opportunity for our members to be obedient to share the gospel in other countries.
Jesus said, “Go!” So we send out teams several times a year to places such as Nepal, India, Russia, England as well as domestic mission trips to evangelize the world! As long as there is one person who has not heard the Gospel, we will continue to proclaim Jesus Christ and Him crucified TILL THE WHOLE WORLD HEARS!
See below for the some of our church plants and the missionaries we are currently supporting!
