At Calvary, we believe that local and national partnerships are essential to our being able to extend the reach of our spiritual and social influence. That is why we partner with organizations that are specializing in areas of spiritual and social concern that we really care about.
Establishing and developing these partnerships keeps us engaged in issues that we believe matter… issues that relate to the heart of our church’s mission and to the heart of Christ. They also give us a chance to reach outside our walls, make a distinct and positive difference, and give us a platform, in a more public way, to be a spiritual voice.

Over time, churches in New Mexico and Moab, Utah were added to make up the Region as we know it today. Churches join together to do what they cannot do separately. In our Region, churches join together to form clusters: Western Slope, Southeast Colorado/New Mexico, Metro Denver, Northern Front Range, and Wyoming. Located in Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, and Eastern Utah. About 100 congregations gather each Sunday to study and worship. Some 28,000 persons identify themselves as members of these congregations.
