Our desire is to offer free resources to assist in the planting of healthy Calvary Chapel churches that teach through the Bible and have a balanced view of the present work of the Holy Spirit in the Church today; churches that are associated theologically, philosophically, and relationally. To this end we have built a team of qualified church planting mentors to equip and encourage up-and-coming church planters to set out with confidence in the Lord and prospects for success.

CCPN also provides Church Planting Intensive conferences to help further our mission.  Check out the content from our last intensive, ReEngage:14.

Calvary Church Planting Network does not affiliate pastors or churches with the Calvary Chapel family of Churches.  We are a network of like minded Calvary Chapel Pastors that desire to mentor and equip perspective church planters to plant churches with the theological and philosophical DNA of Calvary Chapel.  We seek to work with perspective church planters in connecting them with the Calvary Chapel Association, which can direct in the steps of affiliation with Calvary Chapel.

Calvary Church Planting Network offers some very useful resources for church planters and those who want to equip church planters. What they offer may be just what you need to further your call as a church planter, or to help those who have that calling.

The Fruit of Creating a Church Planting Culture

In February Calvary Chapel Rosarito began studying verse by verse through the book of Acts during our weekend services! As the book of Acts opens in Acts 1:8, Jesus’ final words to the church (before His ascension) were… “And you shall be witnesses to me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the end of the earth!” […]

The Value of Celebration and Commemoration

Holy Week is an amazing time of celebration and commemoration in the local church and universal Church. At Calvary Nexus in Camarillo we traditionally enjoy a Passover Seder attended by several hundred guests. It is a unique event to connect the Old and the New Testaments. The Passover was given to the Jews as an everlasting ordinance [Ex.12:14, […]

Resources to Grow in Preaching

Preaching gives the most ear hours than any other form of communication in the church. By that I mean for all the discipleship, classes, counseling and casual conversations a pastor has through the week; more people are listening for longer periods to his prepared sermons than anything else. This is why I propose it is imperative for church planters to continue to learn and grow […]
