Abuja, Nigeria

Prince and Florence Lawrence

Prince Lawrence started Calvary Abuja in 2005 after returning to Nigeria from Calvary Bible College in Hungary. Since the start of the church, many other Calvary’s have been planted throughout the country as well as a Calvary Training Center for pastors seeking to plant churches. Prince also plays an oversight role of all the Calvary Chapel church plants in Nigeria. Calvary Abuja has a strong ministry among orphanages and in the recent years, among refugees who were displaced by terrorism.

Prayer Requests:
  • For more open doors for the LORD to gain glory, the saved to be further up and the lost saved.
  • For the growth and maturity of the membership both here at CC Abuja and all the other centers.
  • For financial provisions for the acquisition of land and for the construction of church halls for our various stations in need.
  • For the LORD to enable my wife and I to raise our kids up in His wisdom and knowledge.

An official church has been registered with the government, outreaches are continuing and the gospel is being proclaimed! The Gourleys are also getting involved in a pastoral training program that is working with leaders to reach nearby areas that are virtually closed to Western missionaries. The Gourley’s often travel to share at churches and conferences in Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, and other countries around the world.

Yamal, Russia

David and Deborah Markey

We are serving in Northern Russia in a region known as Yamal which translates as “end of the earth”. Our overall goal is to see the gospel go out and change the lives of the indigenous people in this part of the world. We seek to achieve this goal by planting small churches throughout the region as people come to know Christ. Our desire is that these churches be equipped to continue to study through God’s word and its power to change their lives as they fellowship, pray, and draw closer to their Savior.

Colina De Luz

Located just outside Tijuana, Mexico, Colina de Luz (Hill of Light) is home for 50 to 60 boys and girls. How did these children end up at this home? Some have been abused, some orphaned, some abandoned, reflecting the poverty that surrounds their family life and community. Situated on top of a hill, as the name suggests, Colina not only offers a literal and figurative oasis to these desperately needy children, but truly provides a home for them.

Cody and Karissa Nunes

Cody and Karissa recently moved to Scotland with their two boys Theo and Mateas. Their desire is to plant a church and coffee shop in Inverness. Inverness has a population of 50,000 and is one of Europe's fastest growing cities, with a quarter of the Highland population living in or around it.
