We employ 50+ women full-time in the ministry, partner with local Churches to feed hundreds of kids each day at our Lydia’s Mission Hope Centers, use a technique called “Farming God’s Way” to farm over 43,000 square feet of gardens, deliver over 35 tons of food to feed over 6,000 residents in the eManzana area, and host weekly Bible studies in 5 different locations as we share the hope of Jesus found in the Gospel.

Macly

Haiti

In 2016, God called Pastor Macly Payoute and his wife Lynda to leave their jobs in the USA and return to Haiti. They answered, moved to Limbe, Haiti and launched Jericho ministries. Their ministry consists of a thriving Church, a Christian school, and an Orphanage. They also provide medical clinics for the community, dig wells for the poor, and much more. 250 children attend their school (which includes feeding them each day), 16 people are employed as staff, over 200 people attend Church services, and 20 kids live in the onsite orphanage.

Mweemba

Tanzania

Erin & Chrispin Mweemba serve as missionaries in northern Tanzania, Africa. They live in Mwanza on the banks of Lake Victoria with their team. Their heart is to pioneer the Gospel among unreached people in the most remote parts of the nation and see them transformed by the power of God through outreach, close relationship, and long-term discipleship. Their focus is to run a discipleship training school where key people from surrounding local tribal groups can come to be empowered for ministry as well as experiencing deeper transformation in their own personal walks with the Lord. The goal is to send them back out to work alongside us in advancing the Kingdom of God in Tanzania.

O'Bryan

Pastor John O'Bryan, his wife Shannon are serving the Lord in Mazatlan, Mexico. They have many responsibilities at YWAM (Youth With A Mission) but their primary duty is to lead and direct YWAM Mazatlán's Medical Ship ministry.

Tippie

Peru

Pastor Craig Tippie and his wife Daisy shepherd a Calvary Chapel in Huacho, Peru. Their vision is to reach, teach, and disciple everyone God brings. The church has a school of ministry to train Pastors, they have disciples attending the Calvary Chapel Bible college in Cajamarca, and their skate and surf camp outreaches have led many young people to Christ. Huacho is the center of witchcraft in Peru, so their ministry has great opposition and many spiritual battles over the souls of the people. The Church is growing, families and youth are arriving, but the Tippie’s focus is to reach all lost people who need Jesus.

Vivar

Dante and Rachel Vivar met when Rachel moved from Melbourne, FL to Lima, Peru to serve as a CCM Missionary working with Pastor Rick Heilman. Dante served for many years in Calvary Chapel Lima as a volunteer but was eventually asked to join the staff as an associate Pastor.

They are a light in their city as they share Jesus through Bible studies and weekend Church services. The Wagners have three boys: Jack, Jensen, and Julian.

Wright

Nicaragua

Many years ago, Lincoln Wright went to Nicaragua on a CCM mission trip. His heart was greatly moved for the people there and shortly after that mission trip he answered God's call to the mission field. As a missionary in Nicaragua, Lincoln is impacting the children living in impoverished areas of Managua. He primarily serves in a place the Lord provided where children gather before and after school to receive food, prayer, and the God's Word . He is also teaches Bible studies in prison and ministers at a home for physically and mentally-challenged children.

Younes

Kyle and Anna Folkerts Younes are being sent by Calvary San Diego to assist an existing Church plant located in the Middle East. Over 400,000 people live in the area they will be ministering in, but only 0.5% of them are Christians. The Church’s priorities are evangelism, discipleship, and mid-week Bible studies in addition to their weekly services. Kyle will be teaching some of the weekends, but he will also be serving as the facilities “maintenance man.” Anna’s primary focus will be on discipling women, but she will be expanding the Church’s English ministry, planning events, and helping with administrative needs.
