Family Ministry is a support ministry for the families of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa and The Calvary Chapel Schools. We disciple families in their relationship with God by providing support, encouragement and training. We believe that through power of Gods Holy Spirit, the ministry of His redemptive story of His word and the discipleship of the body of Christ that true transformation happens.
We believe the great commission “To go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirt teaching them to observe all that I commanded you, and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” is the foundation of why we as a church are to exist. Our mission is to support and help families develop their relationship with God, with each other and to help them be fruitful in this world for God’s glory. We see the role of parents as the primary and most important influence in the spiritual formation of a child's life. Therefore we view our role as one of coming along side a family and helping the parents in training up their children and assist in discipling them and their children to have a genuine relationship with Christ. This journey of life that we are all on can be both rewarding and difficult. We believe by the grace of God he has provided the way for us to flourish in this life and live a life of Faith. But we need the body of Christ to encourage each other and grow together while on the journey of Faith.
