WHAT IS X150?
When followers of Jesus are sent out to love their neighbors, share the Gospel, and make disciples communities are transformed. This is the power of the local church. This is the heart of X150.
In March of 2016, Calvary Church celebrated its 150th anniversary. Taking the opportunity to not only back but to look forward, the question was posed,“What are we going to do today that will matter 150 years from now?” The answer was simple yet God-sized – plant 150 Churches around the world. At that moment, the X150 vision was born and a 10-year goal was set:
START 100 NEW CHURCHES
around the world through key international partnerships
START 25 NEW CHURCHES
in strategic cities around the United States
REVITALIZE 20 CHURCHES
around Tampa Bay area to help reach their communities
START 5 NEW CALVARY CAMPUSES
to impact Pinellas county with the Gospel
“When you plant a biblical, missional, Gospel church that preaches the Gospel of Jesus Christ, you end up impacting everything that is important in the Kingdom of God. When a church is what a church ought to be . . . then orphans get adopted, widows get cared for, the sick are prayed over, the poor are served, the lost are evangelized, the saved are discipled, the children are educated, injustice is confronted, Christ is magnified! When a Gospel church is planted, the Kingdom of God grows!” -Dr. William Rice
Jesus gave all His followers a mission – go and make disciples. But what is a disciple and how do you make disciples? Join a 4 week Disciple Maker class to learn how you can fulfill the Great Commission.
Calvary’s Sending Pipeline is designed to prepare believers for a life of Kingdom impact through disciple making and church planting. Participants are equipped and sent internationally to start new churches, to their workplaces to make disciples, to their neighborhoods to share the hope found in the Gospel, and everywhere in between.
Starting 150 news churches takes new missionaries, new church planters, and new team members of all ages and backgrounds willing to be sent. The Calvary Institute provides Internship, Apprenticeship, and Residency tracks for those interested in both leading and joining church planting and revitalization teams.
