A great way to learn about world missions is to attend the annual Calvary Missions Conference. This year, our theme is “Declare His Glory!” We’ll welcome 19 of our Calvary-supported missionaries and their families to share their stories and their hearts. God is at work across the globe and here at home — you’ll learn more about it throughout this inspiring week!

Meet our missionaries, hear about what God is doing through their ministries, and find out how you can be part of sharing the Gospel locally and around the world.

“Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples!” — Psalm 96:3
