Build to Reach is a three-year campaign to raise funds to build a dedicated sanctuary for the church that will seat many more people and allow Calvary Chapel Las Vegas to reach more souls for the gospel of Jesus Christ both here and abroad through the B2R project.
Our goal is to have 100% participation with each family and individual who calls CCLV their home church. That’s you! We believe as each of us prayerfully considers a commitment to give an amount above and beyond our regular tithing that we will reach our 3 year goal of 3.5 million dollars pledged.
”... For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.Matthew 17:20
Here is what the pledge cards will look like.
They will be available to complete and hand in on November 18.
Instructions for giving
Chapters 8 and 9 of 2 Corinthians addresses the topic of giving. A poor church in Macedonia with many troubles overflowed with generosity by gladly giving more than they could afford. Their first action was to give themselves to the Lord, which they found was God’s desire for them. The following points provide us with biblical insight on the foundations for giving.
When we make a commitment of a gift, we are to finish what we start. 2 Corinthians 8:11
Whatever one chooses to give is acceptable. If we give we are to give according to what we have and not what we do not have. 2 Corinthians 8:3
Those in the position to receive or distribute gifts are to ensure they are used to honor God and be above reproach regarding how the gifts are allocated. 2 Corinthians 8:21
The attitude of the giver is of utmost importance to God. 2 Corinthians 9:7
Remember that everything we have comes from God. 2 Corinthians 9:9
When we give it only means we are giving back to Him what is His already. 2 Corinthians 8:9

I want to thank you for taking the time to prayerfully consider joining us in this exciting step of faith, the Build to Reach Project.
Our church continues to expand its reach to the Las Vegas community as well as the world with our Awaken Events and other missions endeavors.
We want to prepare our hearts by increasing our faith and to do that we need to continue learning how to exercise our faith and putting it into action. Please use the resources below and follow along with your home group, family, friends, or individually.
Faith is contagious! Share a short recap of how God is strengthening your faith through this teaching series!
God put a burden on my heart after much prayer for the Muslims especially those of Egypt and Algeria.Michael
I decided to make a step of faith and start learning Arabic in order to be able to witness to this group.
This desire to use Arabic to witness became an idol. B2R really spoke to my heart and God told me to wait upon him and to grow in compassion for this season. I was able to listen when my wife told me that I was spending way too much time studying Arabic and I was ahead of God.
One of the biggest areas I have been struggling with is making an idol out of my career.Michael
Through the b2r series God spoke to me that I was putting work before my relationship with Jesus my family and even the ministry which is supposed to be accomplished at my job.
This series really spoke to my heart that I was trying to accomplish the things God put on my heart in the flesh and trying to use my career and influence at work and making my employers happy at the cost of neglecting my wife and Ministry.
Pastor Derek taught us of faith through David and Goliath. I've heard of that so many times.Chija
then I was pondering of that Faith again. God has blessed us with different gifts, when we excercise our gift with such passion for Christ, when we were responding to the every passing opportunities, as God honoring believer, that faith of little mustard seed will bring such impact to the body of Christ and bring glory to God.When we go out in HIS NAME , He fought for us and He brings us His victory. Oh Lord, please increase our Faith. Amen!
So my wife and I were led to do the 10 week study on Faith at our home. One week I went to work on the night of the study and at work God said to me hey Joe your doing a study on Faith and went to work how is that demonstrating your faith that I will provide? So I have been requesting time off at work on Fridays and our God has provided for me by being called in on other days other than Friday, unscheduled days.Joe
Before the study started I had been praying for a renewed spirit.i had been out of church because of back pain.God told me to open our house. We did and have been very blessed. Signed up for woman’s study and am volunteering at church. I stepped out in faith and my cup is overflowingSandi
I am a very shy, introverted person. It is hard for me to be involved in things that deal with a lot of people. The Lord has been asking me to "come out of my shell" by volunteering, helping out in situations that force me to deal with people. The Lord has been changing my heart to do more things. I was able to do what I could not and would not normally do because of The Lord. He continues to ask me to help out and is providing me with more opportunities where I can volunteer.Chelsea
We have one lady in our group using her Facebook account to share her faith to friends and relatives.
Also another sister who works for Palm Mortuaries has been sharing her faith to her clientele. She was able to invite someone who goes to Crossroads to come to CCLV and attend our Friday night group!Julito
Steve McCracken, CCLV Missionary to Mexico, shared a little of his testimony and how GOD is using him and his wife Tabitha to serve the Mexican people and share with then them the gospel and love of Jesus Christ!Mike
God gave me a miracle twice of a financial blessing! Thanks to God that my 2 boys got baptized! Praise God for my new 12-year old foster boy who came to stay just for the weekend and now he hasn't left and now he's going to the family wedding with all of us to New York and we're all excited. Pray for me to be able to handle 3 boys as a single mom.Ishana
One of our members got a job after stepping out in faith, quitting her miserable job despite her fear! She cannot believe that God brought her a job the very next day. Praise God for the prayers. She brought her teen daughter to tonight's study for the 1st time.
Another member opened her 4th bed in her home for a future foster boy so pray for her next teenage placement.Ishana
