Mingle with our missionaries and renew old friendships
We have been so blessed and encouraged by the dear folks at Calvary Community Church and Florida Bible College of Tampa, and the Missions Conferences they have hosted annually. What a blessing to be in a good, strong, Bible believing and teaching church and see the ways the Lord is growing the believers there. It has been such an encouragement to see old and new friends gathered around the word of God at the meetings. Pastor Arnold and the entire staff have given themselves to encourage and minister to all the missionaries who have attended the conference. We also have really appreciated the opportunities to get to know the church family there at Calvary Community Church. The great music is a balm for a weary soul. The meals they have provided during the conference are great, and always provide a wonderful time of fellowship focused on the work of the Lord! We have also been greatly encouraged by the fellowship of the missionaries attending the conference. Calvary Community’s mission conference has developed into a time for missionaries to hear and encourage each other. We have been encouraged by the ways we see the folks at Calvary Community enlarging their missions outreach each year. They have added new missionaries each year, increased their giving to current missionaries and are focusing on sending out laborers from the church and College. They are a vital and growing part of our support team. This church wants to have an impact for Christ on the world. We thank the Lord for Calvary Community Church
It's a pleasure to write this testimony about Calvary's Missions Conference: When I am at Calvary Community Church's mission’s conference I feel as if I have their full support. To them, missions are not just a program that the church is supposed to have, but a calling and command from God. Missionaries and their ministries are front and center for the people to see. Then the church backs up their commitment with a generous financial contribution to each missionary. Everything is done first class from the music, messages, and worship to the delicious meals. I look forward to unique fellowship with the other missionaries, the church, and the Bible College students.

Jon & Peggy Sperling:
Jon and I have been overwhelmed by the care, support and love we have received from the Calvary Community family in Tampa. The mission conferences we have attended have encouraged and uplifted both of us, truly enabling us to meet the mission challenges before us. I understand the many hours spent organizing such an event and very much appreciate how our every need is met, from the flights to the hotel accommodations to delicious meals and even a welcome basket. Every sacrificial gift of time and care given to us has propelled our mission forward and having community with other missionaries is tremendously valuable. Such an extension of love is uncommon, needed and appreciated beyond my ability to express. Thank you Calvary Community Church of Tampa!
Terry and I were honored to be a part of the Missions conference in 2017. We were blessed by the messages and encouraged by the fellowship. I loved the opportunity to play guitar in the Firehouse Five as we sing to prepared hearts for the messages that were to come. Terry and I are blessed by the financial partnership that Calvary Community Church has begun in your generous gifts to our ministry. Food is always important in any culture. It not only gives us the nourishment we need but more time to fellowship. It is nice for Terry and I as all we have to do to get to the church is to cross the Howard Franklin bridge to Tampa from St Petersburg. We are looking forward to October 2018 Missions Conference.

Calvary's Mission Conference is a highlight of our year. Dr. Arnold, Betty, and the rest of Calvary graciously provide a boost to our family and ministry both financially and spiritually. The conference is a blessing and encouragement from beginning to end with all of the great messages, fellowship, food, and accommodations.
Thank you and God Bless,
Pastor Matt, Jen, Alyssa, and Courtney
Dear Yankee and all at Calvary Community Church,
We want to thank you for the invitation to your next mission's conference in October 2018. We were planning on our next furlough and had made tentative plans to visit the State between June and August, but we have now changed our plans to visit our supporting churches between August and October, so as to be able to be with you.
Thank you so much for your part in the ministry here in North France.

Annette and I have thoroughly enjoyed all the mission conferences from its inception. We are proud to partner with and Calvary Community Church Mission conference. A church that preaches a clear gospel message that Christ died, buried, and rose again for sins and by accepting only what he did for us we can know we have eternal life and a home in heaven. The conferences boost us to go out back into the mission field to reach and train more souls for Christ. The hospitality, the spiritual food and the physical food are great. We will not miss this mission conference for anything. The challenging speakers will get you excited to go back and do what Christ called you to do.
Thanks to Dr. Yankee and Betty Arnold and Calvary Community Church for making this conference possible and for making it possible to host us.
We Love you all
Birbal & Annette Boodram
