Youth Ministries

We are committed to coming alongside families in a way that helps strengthen and grow them.  It is our prayer and expectant hope that Calvary Youth Ministry will be a place where every youth will know and live out what it means to be a disciple of Christ empowered by the gospel. That they would love and obey Christ and would love one another (John 13:34, 14:21-24), walk in this world without being conformed to it (Romans 12:1-2), have the Word of God hidden in their hearts (Psalm 119:11; Colossians 3:16), that their eyes would be set upon eternity (Colossians 3:1-3) and they would live with a passion to see Christ magnified in every nation (Psalm 67; Matthew 28:18-20).

Our vision is to see what Jesus said come to pass for this generation: “This is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” John 17:3

As a part of the corporate body of CEV, we come alongside the vision of the church by prayerfully seeking opportunities for our youth to connect, grow, serve, reach. Calvary Youth Ministry will be meeting in Agritopia, Gilbert, on Wednesday nights from 6:00-8:00 PM. Where we will by God’s grace connect through fellowship with each other and grow as we praise God and study His word together.

Women’s Ministries

At Calvary East Valley, we are investing the Word of God, into the women of God, for the glory of God. Colossians 3:16 says “Let the words of Christ in all their richness, live in your hearts and make you wise. Use His words to teach and counsel each other. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts.”

Children’s Ministries

We believe our kids are the future of the church. Our goal is to partner with parents to make disciples of the next generation by providing engaging lessons that include worship, fellowship, bible story videos, bible study lessons, activity pages with crafts, and weekly take home cards to reinforce each lesson’s key passage, main point and memory verse. Our Sunday School curriculum, The Gospel Project for Kids, is a Christ-centered three year Bible study that looks at the big picture of God’s story – the story of redemption through Jesus Christ. Each lesson points the children back to Jesus and puts Him in the center of everything. Lessons and activities are presented in a variety of learning styles appropriate for each age group. 

If you have a heart to serve the Lord by serving His children, we would love to have you.  Simply fill out this application and return it to

American Indian Missions for Christ

AIM for Christ is a response to the call of Jesus in the great commission to “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations…”. AIM for Christ is a ministry dedicated to bringing the gospel of Christ to American Indian nations. We desire to live out the Great Commission as mentioned in Matthew 28:19-20.

AIM is also a ministry for those who hear the call and want to answer that call. Sometimes Christians hear the Word of God but have not responded yet to it to become doers. We want to minister to those believers who need to take that step in faith and serve in love. We want to stir each other up for good works while keeping the focus and reason on our first love, Jesus! We want to encourage growing so in love with Jesus, conforming our heart to His heart so that we can see people through His eyes and love them with His heart. “And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works…” Hebrews 10:24

Put Name on Interest List for Dominican Republic Mission Trip! (October 5-12, 2019)

We as a church are blessed to be a part of what God is doing through this ministry.  We support Compassion International in the Dominican Republic and desire to continue to build our partnership there to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.

Compassion International is a child-advocacy ministry that pairs compassionate people with those who are suffering from poverty. The ministry releases children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty. The goal is for each child to become a responsible and fulfilled adult.

Compassion’s work has grown from modest beginnings in South Korea in 1952 when American evangelist Rev. Everett Swanson felt compelled to help 35 children orphaned by the Korean conflict. Today it is a worldwide ministry where millions of children are now reaping the benefits of one man’s clear, God-given vision.
