Andrea Manor

Andrea Manor is 23 years old and has joined us from Orange County, California. The Lord gave her a burden to see the nations reached with the Gospel of Jesus Christ after she got saved in 2014. After spending about 4 months in Rwanda, Africa, the Lord broke her heart for street children and orphans. Andrea feels called to bring the love and hope of Christ to orphans and street children anywhere the Lord leads her! She’s currently being prepared to go out long-term and is waiting on the Lord for where to go.

Bryan Reyes

This is Bryan Reyes, a twenty-year-old from Orange County, California who has a passion for the unreached. Bryan first heard the call to cross-cultural missions when he was 17 years old; within 24 hours of surrendering his life to Jesus! He felt that God was calling him to plant a church where there was no church because he felt uncomfortable with simply sharing the Gospel and letting people go on their way without a church for them to grow in. Since then, Bryan has continued to obey God’s mission for his life step by step and that has brought him to Calvary School of Missions where he seeks God’s will for the next step.

Jorden Skiles

Twenty-one year old Jorden Skiles has joined us in Mexico from Santa Rosa, California. The Lord has stirred his heart to go to the unreached and preach the gospel, to make disciples of all nations and raise up pastors, leaders, and servants of Christ. God has called Jorden, equipped him and prepared him to serve Him and Jorden is ready to do just that wherever God wants him to go. His heart is especially burdened for the unreached, those who have never heard the name of Jesus Christ.

Lacey Olson

This is Lacey Alexus Olson, a 22 year-old California girl, who moved to New Jersey 3 years ago. God has opened the door for her to attend Calvary School of Missions in Mexico as well as an internship through Calvary Chapel Saving Grace once she returns from Mexico! She feels burdened for the unreached, those trapped in human sex trafficking, and homeless children who are forced to live on the streets but she is seeking the Lord on where that might take her and is continuing to trust in God for His leading and His faithfulness!

Nancy Gutierrez

Twenty-two year-old, Nancy from Orange County, California felt the calling to become a missionary to the dark places of the world after being saved back in 2016. She has a huge burden for the unreached and for street-children. Nancy feels called to Africa, but she is open to go anywhere in the 10/40 window and bring the name of Jesus where it has not been named. Nancy feels that the school of missions has been a huge blessing and she is excited to see where the Lord leads her!
