The youth ministry of Calvary Baptist Church invites youth to become followers of Jesus Christ, to own their beliefs, and be engaged in discipleship and spiritual growth through connection to one another and the larger church body through worship and missions.

My youth wants to go on a trip, but we can’t afford it. Can Calvary help?
We believe that money should never be an impediment to youth attending a retreat, trip, or event. If you need financial help, please contact Justin Sizemore.
