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.
