June 26–29

A Colony of Heaven in a Country of Death

For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit. – 1 Thessalonians 1:5a


Gospel Doctrine is intended by God to produce Gospel Culture: A culture of goodness and grace. The church is the showcase for Gospel Culture. Our churches are to be spaces that are distinct from the culture around us— places where the love, grace, and goodness of God are continually on display.


The church is an entirely different kind of community from anything the world has to offer, “a colony of heaven in a country of death,” as Eugene Peterson said. Gospel Culture lived out in our churches is the way the world will see and experience the goodness of God that we proclaim through Gospel Doctrine.


Creating Gospel Culture is vital to the church’s witness and mission. If we fail there, we will largely “unsay” what we’ve said through Gospel Doctrine. Join us as we take a deep dive into what Gospel Culture looks like and how we can better cultivate that culture to the glory of God and the good of people made in His image.

Tony Clark

Tony Clark is the senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Newport News. After boot camp, instead of starting a life with his new bride, Tony received military orders to be stationed in Okinawa, Japan. Going to this foreign land was more than an overseas adventure because it was here that he made a life-changing God commitment. He thrived in this newfound relationship and began learning about the Bible. It was in Okinawa that the Lord revealed to Tony that one day he would become a pastor.

Pancho Juarez

Pancho Juarez is currently the pastor of Calvary Chapel Montebello in California. He believes that Jesus Christ is the only answer and hope for this dying world. It is this belief that led Pancho to teach others about Christ.

Pancho received most of his biblical servanthood and training while attending Calvary Chapel in West Covina, California. Pancho joined the church leadership but eventually felt called to go back to the hometown of his youth to minister to his community. He started a home fellowship group that grew to over 200 members. With so many people attending, they decided to move to a larger facility: a converted barn.

A year later, this growing congregation needed even more space and moved to a local high school auditorium. It officially became a church on July 12, 1992. In July of 1995, the church took another turn and moved to a 98,000 sq. ft. warehouse. Two years later, the property officially belonged to Calvary Chapel Montebello.

The church has grown to more that 3,000 adults and 1,000 children, with enough activities to keep the church open all week long. Pancho is supported by his wife, Millie, and his five children: Jasmine, Bianca, Alexandria, Sebastian, and Zoe.

Tim Chaddick

Tim Chaddick is the Pastor for Preaching at Reality Ventura and Founding Pastor of Reality Church London and Reality LA.

In 2021, Tim returned to California to take up the Pastor for Preaching role at Reality Ventura.

These churches are a part of the Reality family of churches, a movement committed to relational church planting and serving the broader body of Christ. Tim's first two books, "Better: How Jesus Satisfies the Search for Meaning" and "The Truth about Lies," were projects that came from lessons learned while living and pastoring in urban areas. Pastor Tim and his wife Lindsey care deeply about the ministry of the local church and seek to devote themselves to helping churches begin and flourish in their mission to share and reflect the Gospel.

The Seattle-based band Citizens has been breaking molds since their shotgun birth in 2011. Forming just months prior to their debut EP, "Already Not/Yet," Citizens found quick endearment in the hearts and ears of people worldwide with their energetic alternative hymn arrangements. As their friendship grew, so did their storytelling. Original songs sung out of overflowing wells of joy and dark depths of pain began to surface and the full force of Citizens began to really take shape. Citizens has never just been any one thing. Over the years they have received a welcomed embrace in a variety of genres primarily attributed to their commitment to honesty. While every song has not always found itself in the spaces of corporate church singing, Citizens has stayed true to telling the stories of God’s grace in their life. It’s always been about writing for more then just the Christian’s but for the world to hear and know that they are loved no matter what.

Cultivate: Church Planting Roundtable with Nick Cady and Team

Calling all church planters! Leaders of the Cultivate program will lead a discussion about the rich heritage of church planting in Calvary Chapel, and what we are doing as a network to encourage, assess, train, and support church planters.

Soul Refresh: How We Can Get Traction Again with Ray Ortlund

The Bible speaks of “newness of life” (Romans 6:4). But sometimes, our Christian journey can feel more like “stuckness in death.” How does our gracious, merciful, non-uptight Lord lift us from our “stuckness” into His newness? Let’s talk about it. Let’s be honest about it. Let’s dare to believe that our future can be better than our past. And it has nothing to do with us proving ourselves to God. It is all by His grace, and His grace alone!

How Does the Church Make Disciples? with Tim Chaddick

In the Bible, followers of Jesus are called Christians three times, believers 15 times, and disciples 235 times. Therefore, we need to understand what discipleship is and how it pertains to the whole church since it is so important to Jesus. In this workshop, we will debunk some myths about discipleship, explore what it is truly about, how leaders can structure the church for disciple-making, and help every member know their role within it.

Why Do I Need to Confess Sins? Jesus Already Paid for Them with Gerry Breshears

First John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins,” to receive forgiveness. With a full biblical-theological understanding of sin and confession, this passage can bring astonishing healing to people’s lives. We’ll correct common mistakes like, “If we forget to confess sin, it means we are unforgiven,” on one side, and “This verse only applies to unbelievers coming to faith,” on the other.

You Need a Helper with Elyse Fitzpatrick, Cheryl Brodersen and Brenda Leavenworth

Into God’s good creation, the Lord said, “It’s not good for man to be alone.” So He made a helper that would be exactly what Adam needed in order to fulfill God’s commands and flourish. In this workshop, we’ll consider why the man needed a helper, what a helper is, the surprising ways this help is seen throughout the Bible, and how you can begin to access the help God has provided.

The What, Why, and How of Sabbaticals with Ted Leavenworth, Nate Holdridge, and Conor Berry

In this workshop, we will explore the various types of sabbaticals, case studies supporting their necessity, and the practical steps for their planning and execution. You will discover the Biblical foundation of sabbatical rest, the physiological and spiritual benefits of sabbaticals, and the practical steps to help you and your board implement a strategic plan for sabbaticals, to the glory of God and the health of the church.

Current Cultural Issues with Amy Orr-Ewing

In our cultural moment, there are a number of large-scale shifts in thinking that we as churches need to track with if we are to be faithful to the Great Commission of Jesus. In this workshop, we will explore two in particular: Deconstruction and the “Intersectionality Thinking” that undergirds many of the challenges and opportunities facing us in the mission of the church.

Preaching Gospel Culture with Mike Neglia, Nick Cady, and Tim Chaddick

The tone and content of our pulpits play a vital role in establishing the culture of our churches. In this workshop, they will discuss practical steps in relation to sermon preparation and delivery, as well as philosophical approaches to vulnerability, honesty, and the role that confession plays in creating church ecosystems of Gospel Doctrine and Gospel Culture.

Intentional Formation and the Sunday Gathering with Char Brodersen, Jordan Taylor, and Hannah Colt

Churches and church leadership face an upward battle, when it comes to forming and discipling people in the way of Jesus. Social commentators are currently talking about how significantly we are being shaped by technology, social media, and 24/7 news – we are being formed and “discipled” in a specific narrative about the world and our own place and purpose in it. Our responsibility is not to fight information with more information but with counter-formation in the way of Jesus. Since this is the case, we believe that we must be very intentional about each moment of the Sunday gathering – from welcome to close- in order to form our people in the way of Jesus. Please join us as we share about how we shape our most important gathering with Gospel intentionality.

Media Packet

CGN is a family of churches working together to proclaim the Gospel, make disciples, and plant churches.

We work collaboratively for Gospel-centered renewal, providing leaders with relationships and resourcing as we follow the way of Jesus. We’re committed to being a part of something bigger than just one church. We’re a family consisting of churches and ministries across national and denominational borders.

Together, we strive for the renewal of all things through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe the best way to do this is through providing relationships that will help disciples of Christ serve together and resources that will help disciples serve well.

Our mission is rooted in the core Great Commission emphases, which are the chief ways the church participates in the Missio Dei (mission of God). These emphases are: Proclaim the Gospel, Make Disciples, Plant Churches.

We work together for Gospel-centered renewal, providing leaders with relationships and resourcing as we follow the way of Jesus.
