A History and
Future of Grace

We had such an amazing time at our first all-online conference. It is the aim of Calvary Global Network to strike the balance of celebrating both the history of grace, and a future of grace, by the power of Christ. The Calvary Chapel/CGN International Conference is one expression of our greater vision to express the love of Christ, train church leaders, and celebrate the diversity and unity we enjoy in the Church (1 Corinthians 12:12-31).

This year’s theme of “Essential Church” has proven to be a timely encouragement for us to trust in the identity, power, and mission of the church to advance the Gospel to all the world.

Conference Theme

Essential Church: Identity, Power, and Mission


In terms of individual Christian identity, being part of the church means you are in an unchangeable, spiritual union with millions of people who together form the global body of Christ.


Jesus commanded His followers to preach the gospel and make disciples in the world. Jesus baptizes them with the Holy Spirit to empower them to boldly and effectively preach the gospel and make disciples as His witnesses.


The church collectively becomes a more full expression of Jesus in the world as His followers work together for the gospel and use their gifts to serve one another. In this way, Jesus manifests Himself and carries on His mission in the world today.

Brian Brodersen shares about the heart and vision of the conference.

When the CGN team met back in November, little did we realize how important (and relevant) this year’s conference theme would be for discussion. Never has there been a time like the present to revisit Calvary Chapel’s values and the true essence of what “church” is. From its beginning, CGN has a history rooted in the Calvary Chapel movement of grace and reaching people cross-culturally. We are Amazed by the Lord’s guidance in this year’s lineup of speakers, and each speaker will provide a broad and diverse perspective to this year’s theme.
