Jesus sets the example for us in what it means to be on mission. He came into our world, spoke our language and lived among us and He has called us to do the same. Jesus gave us the great Co-Mission because it's really His mission to reach the world.
It's pretty cool (and humbling) that He asks us to join Him.
The Outpour Movement was founded in 2006 by Ray and Candace Ward. The Outpour Movement exists to transform, disciple, train, and empower the youth and young adults of oppressed people groups who transcend the Thai and Burma border. Outpour looks forward to building longterm relationships in these areas with the help of supporters and teams that come along side of them in the work. They are working to establish projects in each of the villages that they’ve been visiting – building shelters to hold teaching sessions and church services, assisting with medical projects along with growing gardens, building playgrounds etc. God has already done so much through this ministry and we believe there is so much more that He wants to do!

The Linn family’s journey toward becoming international workers began during the summer of 2014, when Ben and Dorine were visiting Dublin. During this time, their eyes were opened to the practical and spiritual needs of the people. After months of following up and praying, they were able to connect with Amoveo Group and have a conversation about launching a new site in Dublin, Ireland. Amoveo Ireland’s mission is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ while building relationships with individuals, partnering with organizations for service and outreach, and facilitating short-term teams in Dublin City.

Originally from San Jose, Shane started going to Hungary with Calvary Chapel San Jose in the summer of 2002. For the next 4 years he lead a team back to Hungary for summer camps, and then moved to Eger in 2006 to help with worship at a church plant. He met his wife Marianna in 2007, and they got married in 2008. They moved to Szolnok to start a church in 2010 and shortly after their daughter Emily was born. And just this last January, they welcomed their son, Benjamin into the world! Their ministry focus has been to boldly share the Gospel (99% are non-believers in the area!), offer solid Bible teaching and continuing to build bridges between the churches in the community. The best way to keep in touch with the Daniels family is through Facebook but email works as well (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you'd like to financially support them, you can do it through Calvary Chapel San Jose or through a PayPal account (just search for his email)
Renan, a former altar boy, accepted the Lord in 1985 through a High School Bible Study about the rapture. Renan and Anna are both Filipino natives who then started attending Calvary Chapel Manila in 1988 under the verse-by-verse teaching of Pastor Roger Scalice. There he met his wife, Anna who served as an usher/Sunday School teacher while Renan also served in the Sunday School. Renan later became a deacon, elder and worship leader.
After 13 years in the IT industry, Renan knew that God called them to be missionaries. He and his family moved in August 2003 to San Miguel Island in Bicol to assist Pastor David Matthews in the ministry. Renan served as an Assistant Pastor and Worship Leader in two planted churches and spent much of his time leading home bible studies, helping in Children's Ministry and assisting in the annual kids/youth camps.
