We have been serving in North Africa since 2009. Our ultimate goal is to be part of a local CP, first by seeing some become born again and then be discipled. By learning the two local languages used, understanding and adapting to some cultural differences, building relationships, showing genuine care and love, going through turmoil and the revolution together as we live in community, we’ve had many opportunities to build trust, share our faith and the Good News, praying the Spirit changes lives as He is the only way it can happen.

My heart has always been to teach others about Jesus and to reach the unreached. For the past several years I have been able to be an influence in the lives of young people in different capacities. Now the Lord has given me the opportunity to go to an area where many do not know the power available to them through a relationship with Jesus Christ. I will be able to join with other in sharing the love of Jesus in this nation, while learning what it truly mean to be a disciple myself. As I am training, I will be praying and asking the Lord to further direct my path in service to Him in this area.
On a recent mission trip, the Lord confirmed that now was the time to GO and pursue further opportunities to serve cross culturally. Steve, Tabitha and their 2 sons, Asher and Levi, will be serving at the Calvary Training Center in La Gloria, Mexico.

As a family, they will be helping with local outreaches and short term teams that come to serve in the Tijuana area. Their desire is to know God in a more deep and personal way through the stretching of their faith, to see Gods kingdom grow through discipleship and church planting, and to share the Gospel wherever He may call them.
For the past 25 years, Rick and Ollie have been ministering to those precious people of the Manila garbage dump. Throughout their stay in the Philippines, Rick and Ollie have felt they are an arm of Calvary Chapel Las Vegas, reaching out in sharing the love and saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. One of Rick’s greatest blessings from his time in the Philippines was when he met his wife Olympia (Ollie). She is a Filipina from the north, from a place called Isabella. They have been married for over nine years now, and for the past 7 years, have been leading the Balut ministry while serving also as National Administrator & regional director for YWAM Philippines National Capital Region.
In 2013 Brittney had the wonderful opportunity to go and do missions overseas for a year. She traveled to 11 different countries in that year. It was then she went to Thailand for the first time and she fell in love with the country. The people, the language, and the culture it was all so beautiful. Before Brittney left Thailand, the Lord had put on her heart and confirmed she would return there. Almost 2 years later, Brittney will be returning to Thailand, and will be serving the Lord in Mae Hong Son. The main areas of ministry here are teaching English in local schools and weekly Bible studies to encourage the Thai believers. The people here are hungry to know God. Brittney considers herself blessed to go and be the Lord’s hands and feet.
We have been working with un-reached people groups since 1998. Our heart is to see the Good News and life changing message of Jesus Christ taken to the people groups and regions of the world that have yet to have the opportunity to hear. We are passionate about seeing the local church established, discipled and empowered so that they can multiply themselves across their nation. We have also given our lives to investing in young leaders. Tomorrow’s leaders are being prepared today. It is our desire to see a generation of godly leaders that will boldly live for Christ in love, truth and power.
