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.


This ministry helps those who are sick, have had surgery, etc., within our fellowship by providing a meal. If you desire to help in this way, see the signup at the info booth, or talk to Elvira M.


Corpus Christi, TX

Station Manager: Esther Hackleman






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!


Kenneth & Letty Dujay


The Dujay Family is currently serving on the mission field in Cusco, Peru. They have started a bible-teaching church in Cusco and are actively discipling locals. They focus on building relationships with those around them and ministering in various place. Each Saturday, the family gathers in the neighborhood park for Bible Club with local kids in hope of getting to know them and their families. Sunday morning service at Calvary Chapel Cusco starts at 10am. They have made much progress and now have a coffee shop near the university to reach college-age adults. Here is a message from them during the pandemic:


A Message from Kenneth Dujay,

Our missionary in Cusco, Peru


Dear Brothers and Sisters,


     Currently the situation in Peru is very heavy and doesn't look like it will be letting up until the COVID vaccine is available for everybody here. The government also extended the State of Emergency until (at least) September 2021.


We continue to serve and teach the Word faithfully, believing the promises He gave us 10 years ago even through the heartbreak of seeing the people here suffering physically, mentally and spiritually more than we have ever seen. 


Attached is a four minute video with a bit more detail of the past few months of our lives. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for your faithfulness to the Lord in financial and prayer and emotional support for the ministry of His Word to the beautiful people of Cusco, Peru, in and through our family. 


Your prayers are needed for the country of Peru and for our family, now more than ever. 


With so much uncertainty we are asking the Lord to guide us and confirm His will for our family during these unpredictable times. 


Thank you!

Wayne and Tammy Andrus

Dear Friends,


Many of you have been following our journey in Kenya, Africa these past 6 years. As you know we have been traveling back and forth because of the need to earn money to support ourselves. We feel the strong call to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the most broken. While in Kenya, we ask God to lead us wherever He wants each day. This prayer has led us on paths that have been incredibly fruitful. There are so many stories of miraculous that we could write a book. This Journey has brought us to prisons, rescue centers, feeding centers, orphanages, water well ministry, schools, slums, hospitals and the list goes on and on. This prayer has led us to save lives both physical and spiritual. As we serve Jesus, He has overflowed our hearts for the Kenyan people more and more. As we prepare to head back to Kenya in April or May, we believe we are being led to be on the mission field full time... But we cannot do it alone. If you would like to invest in eternity by partnering with us, here are a few ways you can participate.


1. You can directly donate at our website@Gosendjoin.us or our Andrus Family Mission Facebook Page (under shop now). Or send a check to P.O. Box 9101, Corpus Christi, Texas 78469 {your donation will be a tax write off).


2. Host a get together-dinner, lunch, Bible study, church service-and we will come share our story.


3. You can come on a mission trip! We would love to show you personally all God is doing in Kenya.


4. Email us for the quarterly newsletter.  Email address is wilopilo@att.net


5. Pray. We may have listed it last, but prayer is most important. You can keep up with how to pray specifically on our website or Andrus Family mission Facebook Page. Please like our page and share our posts!


All donations are appreciated no matter how much. In Kenya we can do so much with little. Our prayer is for long term monthly donations, so we would love for you to be part of our lives the entire journey and experience all that God does!


Many blessings,


The Andrus Family... Isaiah 58: 10-11

Matamoros, Mexico, Ester Terjerina

Mission trips to Pan de Vida are a great opportunity to minister to the women and 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.

From 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."
