missions & outreach

Global Missionaries Jesus commanded His followers to make disciples of all nations. Calvary Chapel is doing just that by equipping, encouraging, and serving our missionaries and the ones they reach for Christ. We are committed to serving as senders to those who would respond to the call and give their lives for the sake of the gospel. Scroll through the list of missionaries below to learn more about the work they are doing around the world. Pray about your involvement.

SYNDEO MINISTRIES

Syndeo Ministries

The mission of Syndeo Ministries is based on this verse: 

    Remember those in prison as if you were bound with them!
    Hebrews 13:3 NIV

LARRY AND HANNAH OVERTON, Palestine, Texas

In 2006 Larry and Hannah Overton fell in love with a little boy at their church. His name was Andrew. Andrew was a foster child that the Overtons felt a great desire to provide a home for and to "become his forever family." He would be their sixth child, an addition to their five biological children. A few short months later tragedy struck and their world was turned upside down. Andrew went home to be with Jesus when he passed away from a rare medical condition called Hypernatremia. This condition caused very high, fatal levels of sodium in his body. This sorrowful tragedy was compounded when Larry and Hannah were accused and charged in Andrews death. On September 7, 2007 Hannah was convicted of capital murder and sent to a maximum security prison for life without the possibility of parole for a crime she didn't commit. This would leave Larry at home to care for their other 5 children. During Hannah's time in prison God not only held her and her family in His hands but also used this trial in mighty ways. After seven years of imprisonment, Hannah was exonerated and all charges were dropped on April 8th, 2015. During this span, many have come to the Lord and the ministry is continually growing. Although Hannah is home with her family, Hebrews 13:3 reminds her to "remember those in prison as if you were there with them." The Overton's heart is to share their story, encourage those facing times of sorrow, and to always trust that God is faithful to lead them every step of the way. They will continue to minister to those behind the gates and remind the church that this charge is not only for those who have been there like Hannah, but for all believers!

CALVARY CHAPEL - CUSCO, PERU

KENNETH & LETTY DUJAY

The Dujay Family is currently home in the US from serving on the mission field in Cusco, Peru. They started a bible-teaching church in Cusco and are actively discipling locals. Focused on building relationships with those around them and ministering in various places, each Saturday the family gathered in the neighborhood Cusco park for Bible Club with local kids in the hopes of getting to know them and their families. Sunday morning service at Calvary Chapel Cusco starts at 10am and is now online. They've made much progress and now have a coffee shop (though not presently being used) near the university to reach college-age adults.

Howdy and Happy Belated Mother's Day to all you Mama's out there!

 

Thank you in advance for watching the 2+minute video I have uploaded answering some questions we've been getting since announcing our stay in the US this year.

 

As I (Letty) write this, I am sitting in the apartment we are renting in Spring, Texas (a suburb of Houston) and Kenneth is finishing up his bout of COVID in Cusco-we are grateful he didn't have any complications or more serious symptoms! Other than being extremely tired, he had a head cold and is still fighting a cough and shortness of breath.

He lands this Saturday and we'll all be together again...sort of...as we are almost empty nesters!

 

We appreciate your hearts, your friendship and your responses (even if we take a month to reply sometimes) as they are always so perfectly timed and bring the encouragement or confirmation we need in that moment. We hope to be able to visit some of you during our stay!

 

"May the Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace."

 

Con amor, The Dujays

ANDRUS FAMILY MISSION - KENYA, AFRICA

WAYNE & TAMMY ANDRUS

Donations can be made at Calvary Chapel of the Coastlands giving page by using the GIVE button and then selecting the quick give then dropdown Kenya-Wayne and Tammy Andrus. For scheduled giving register and then select scheduled giving. Thank You!

The Dream Center has officially opened! Thanks to donations we were able to hire a full time teacher and yesterday we had our first student. It was less than 2 months ago that this student was living on the streets. What a beautiful picture of God's love for us. “ For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the Kingdom of the Son He loves” Colossians 1:13

 

500 Club has been amazing! Out of the relationships built through this program we will start a separate evening bible study for teen girls. Some of the young girls hungry for truth are from Muslim homes. We are expecting the truth being shared paired with the love of Jesus to impact this community in a radical way.

 

Labor of Love! It was a blessing to have our daughter, Willow and our guests the Huffman’s serving alongside of us as we labored in making this place a sanctuary for the children and the community. I’ve attached a video done by a local station of our labor of love. Although our time together with visitors was filled with working hard we also played hard and made time to see some of the beauty of Kenya.

 

Girls Conference! We expected to have 250 girls each with a reservation. Not sure how but it seems this is a common theme…we had 500. Many had come for the promise of a small gift brought and made from our friends in the States (washable feminine pads, bookmark, headband and a small mirror) The messages were powerful and life giving. But the message that moved me to tears was when around 50 young girls stood (some with head coverings) to surrender their lives to Jesus. This took great courage and is not anything taken lightly. This could be dangerous for those that come from muslim backgrounds. The church has given us their word to continue to disciple these new followers. We will plan to do another girls conference in a few months.

 

Upcoming events! • VBS for 100 orphans starts this week  Boys bible study  Classes will begin for children who are not in school  Parenting Classes with certificate earning infant necessities (baby mosquito nets, food and infant clothing)

 

We see God's hands in everything. Only He could do all this. Thank-you for being part of our journey.

PAN DE VIDA SHELTER - Matamoros, Mexico

ESTER TERJERINA

Mission trips to Pan de Vida are a great opportunity to minister to the women & children at the shelter.  We make all the meals while we are there for everyone as well as doing different projects to bless the shelter.  We also do crafts and games with the children. Sign up at the info booth.

Ester's Testimony: "My original calling was to be a missionary in Mexico City. I had just finished bible school and the Lord laid on my heart to go to Mexico City. I had no idea what I was going to do when I got there. Once there I started teaching biblical studies. Within 2 years those studies grew into a church of over 100 people. After 7 years the Lord enabled me to open a home for desperate people. The calling was to help people suffering from drug addiction, alcoholism, prostitution and other needs of the spirit. These people needed a home that supplied not only physical needs but spiritual healing as well. Soon after that, I was called to open a home in Matamoros.

 

I moved to Matamoros in 1995. I served the Lord there for 3 years. We soon started looking for land instead of having to pay rent at our current location. An evangelist came by and told me about a friend of his that had recently accepted the Lord that had a big heart and some land in Sandoval, a small community to the west of Matamoros.

 

In July of 1998 Adventures in Missions helped to get us started by building 3 wood frame, steel roofed buildings on this property. Two of the three buildings have been replaced.

 

We first moved to Sandoval with 4 women and 10 children. By this time I had already been ministering to the local prison in Matamoros, but had to stop because of the move from the city. One day I received a woman whose husband was in prison serving a ten year sentence. Celeste had a son named Pepe and she asked me if she could visit her husband in the prison. I said yes, but that I would need to go with her. From there on I began prison ministry on a weekly basis."
