It is the desire of the Calvary Chapel Men's Ministries to equip the men of Calvary Chapel with God's Word so they can make a godly impact in their homes, in their workplaces, and in their schools. Through our bi-monthly men’s fellowships, small group meetings, activities and retreats you'll receive the instruction, encouragement, accountability, and fellowship you need to accomplish these goals.  The Men's Ministry meets every other Tuesday at 7:00 p.m.
Christ's Great Commission guides us in our pursuit to share the Gospel message beyond the pulpit, supporting missionary work in Okinawa, Japan; 20+ Calvary Chapel pastors in Cuba, as well as at orphanages in Mexicali & Tecate, Mexico.
In Isaiah, God tells us that His house shall be a house of prayer and as such, we have made it our goal to make prayer available during every Worship Service. Whether you need one-on-one prayer or for your family, our Prayer Ministry welcomes you.

Worship Ministry
Pastor Lito Lucena

The Tech Ministry focuses its efforts on enhancing and broadcasting every service for those attending in-person, as well as for those watching through our app and online.  From providing worship lyrics to live-streaming the service to providing recordings for later listening, the Tech Ministry provides and offers a variety of avenues for church members to focus on service as well as to offer their skills and talents.
The heart of the Calvary Chapel Women’s Ministry is to reach women, both inside and outside of the church, with the love of Christ. We hope to help them to apply the Word of God to their lives and to see them grow in their walk with the Lord. We offer a variety of opportunities for women to gather and fellowship around the Word of God such as retreats, outings, and other activities, with the goal of strengthening their faith so they can be mature and effective women in every area of their lives. The Women's Ministry meets on Thursdays at 9:30 a.m. & 7:00 p.m.
The Psalmist tells us in chapter 33 to sing new songs, play on stringed instruments and lift our voices to our God.  The heart of the Worship Ministry is to lead the body in upholding this command, while preparing each heart, in-person and online, to receive God's Word.
