MISSIONARIES

John and Beth

John and Beth married in August of 2007. They attended the Cornerstone School of Ministry in 2008-2009. In 2010, they attended a Discipleship Training School (DTS) with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) in Colorado.
They are now living and serving full time with YWAM Colorado Springs Strategic Frontiers. John is the Chief Financial Officer and serves on the Board of Directors. Beth provides pastoral care. She also uses her midwifery skills to train both student and indigenous midwives and affect maternal child health in the nations through community health education. 

Sharon

Sharon attended Calvary services when the church was still meeting at Crescent Valley High School.  Her parents came to faith through China Inland Mission and she was dedicated to the Lord when she was a baby. When she was 14, she was called to serve her people. In her first seven years in missionary work, Sharon and her late husband spent together serving Chinese churches in Japan. God’s mercy not only strengthened her, turning her around to follow His calling, and igniting her with a new heart of love to serve her people again.
Sharon and her husband, Jerry, are pressing on for God’s plan for them. While they are serving internationals in Corvallis, their other ministry under the lead of International Training Alliance. ITA trains young church leaders among Chinese diaspora in Brisbane, Australia.  Sharon currently serves on staff at Calvary as the Nations Team Director. 

Scott and Briana

Scott, Briana and their daughter Naomi are serving in Amsterdam with the Navigators. They are working with international students that come from all over the world to study there. The Navigators are an international non-denominational organization that focuses on one on one discipleship and the spreading of the Gospel of Jesus through spiritual generations of ordinary believers passing their faith onto to those around them.  
They have served for two years already and are considering two additional years and maybe longer. They enjoy providing a home away from home for students and working in a Post-Christian environment.  God is certainly up to something in the Netherlands, and they are praying that every single international student in Amsterdam has a personal encounter with Jesus through their ministry

Alise

Alise is serving with Campus Crusade (Cru) in Orlando, Florida.
This school year definitely looks much different than normal. Most of their students have chosen virtual school, but a few are attending face-to-face classes.  Because the students are online all day for classes, her team is trying to do fewer things virtually and instead they are trying to focus this year doing more small groups.  Alise and her team are going to learn how to do "small things well", and just trust that God may be using less to accomplish even more. They have more Bible studies and one-on-one groups, and they're excited to use those to grow more in deeper relationships with the students and to train them in relational evangelism and how to intentionally pursue their friends with the love of Christ, since CRU can't do big outreaches anymore. We have a couple of socially distanced outdoors events planned - a city wide (for all the HS campuses in Orlando with Cru) worship night, and a prayer experience. 

Pat

Pat is the Multi-Area Director (of the Willamette Valley) for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) in Oregon.  His role is to recruit workers for FCA so that together they can “see the world transformed by Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes."  Pat has hired two additional staff for the Willamette Valley since beginning full-time in January of 2021.
He has been married to his beautiful wife, Susan, for 44 years. They've hosted and led Bible studies in their home with church groups and athletes.  Pat and Susan host one of Calvary's house churches.
Pat recently finished a 42-year coaching and teaching career (seventeen in high school and twenty-five in college). The Lord has been at the center of all the success he had as a teacher and as a coach. From being the Head Coach at West Linn High School and participating in the 1995 State Championship Game, to winning National Championships in 2004 as Head Coach at George Fox University, and in 2018 as Associate Head Coach at Oregon State University, he gives all glory and all credit to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

S

S grew up in Corvallis. God used the Calvary Corvallis high school ministry to put a love in her heart for the Lord and His word.  S felt God leading her to help provide His word to people who don’t have it yet. After graduating from OSU, she attended Cornerstone School of Ministry where God further equipped her and continued to confirm this direction for her life.

I Family

They were sent out by our church body in 2013 to join the Guild training network in Little Arabia (located in Southern California). They serve as team leaders of a pioneer church planting team within the Arab Muslim community. In addition to working full-time and raising their girls in the community, they are learning Arabic language and culture and building meaningful relationships with their Muslim neighbors. They and their team long to see Muslim families and individuals falling in love with Jesus, enjoying the blessings of his kingdom, and transforming their communities for the glory of God here and abroad.
