Calvary Community Church

Calvary Missions

We are currently supporting three Missions endeavours in various parts of the world.

 

Everyday Ministry


MISSION

Every Day Ministries Canada partners with local evangelical pastors and leaders on the north east coast of the Dominican Republic to equip, empower, and encourage them, their families, churches, and communities through leadership development, community development and land development so they can more effectively preach the Gospel and make disciples.

VISION

Equipping, Empowering and Encouraging local pastors and churches to preach the Gospel and make disciples.

HISTORY

Every Day Ministries Canada is a non-profit Christian missionary organization that was founded in 2006. The birth of EDMC came about when God clearly planted in the hearts' of the Thomas family a deep passion and burden for the people of the Dominican Republic. Through prayer and fasting, God revealed a clear vision to start a new work aong the North Coast of the DR that includes the cities of Gaspar Hernandez, Río San Juan, Cabrera, Payita and  Nagua.  Our goal is to assist the existing churches, and their pastors, in whatever way possible to preach the Gospel and make disciples. 

​We believe God has called us to stand in the gap on behalf of the people in these areas and, with God’s help, and in partnership with the local churches, bring about positive physical changes as well as eternal spiritual changes

 

Leket Israel Mission

Leket Israel is the largest food bank in Israel, and has been a leader and an expert in food rescue nationwide since 2003. The organization sources, collects and redistributes fresh, perishable, quality food, which would otherwise be considered waste, from farms, hotels, military bases and catering halls. This is done in an effort to aid the quarter of the country’s population that lives below the poverty line. Leket works with 195 non-profits throughout the country to provide nutritious food to over 175,000 Israelis weekly. Last year alone, Leket collected and delivered over 30 million pounds of fresh, healthy food for the needy. Thousands of tons of quality food go to waste in Israel and is estimated at 40% of all the food produced in the country. This paradox of large scale food waste coupled with the growing number of Israel’s poor led to the founding of Leket Israel, to bring quality surplus food to people who really need it.

 

To meet this goal, Leket Israel carries out a wide array of food rescue activities: harvesting fresh produce from farmers’ fields; collecting surplus agriculture from packing houses; rescuing cooked food from various suppliers, as well as food products from the manufacturing industry. 

 

 Prison MinistryClaude & Carol Rivest

MEXICO  CLAUDE & CAROL RIVEST


Claude & Carol have been going into Mexico since 1999 and found the people to be very open to the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.  They started out helping the needy with food, clothing, shelter and other items necessary for daily living. Many poor live in shanties made of pallet wood with large spaces between the boards. Not very warm in the cold weather.

Their main goal is to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the unsaved so they minister to the people through using gospel tracts, explaining how they can be saved and how their lives can change for the better.  After much prayer, they were given the idea of using the Jesus film produced by Campus Crusade.  They purchased equipment such as a generator and sound system, lights, tables, a projector etc. and made 6' by 8' screen.

They always us this outdoors in parks, playgrounds, streets and vacant lots.  Whenever space is found the people in the area are invited to see a free film in the evening. After the film the Rivests share the message of salvation and many respond to be saved.  Free bibles are given to those who respond and they are encouraged to find a good bible teaching church near their home.
