Please Pray For This Ministry

Brethren, pray for us.
1 Thessalonians 5:25

Each day at our office begins with a time of prayer, in which we seek the Lord's guidance as we serve Him at Calvary Chapel Magazine. We appreciate all of the people who tell us that they also pray for this ministry. Without that support, this magazine would not be in existence. Thank you for lifting Calvary Chapel Magazine up to the Lord, and asking Him to use this publication for His glory. Pray that hearts will be open to the message of salvation and to the work He wants to do in our reader's lives.
In the back of each issue is a section called, "Praise & Prayer." We record the prayer requests of missionaries around the world, so that you can remember them in prayer as well. Please also pray for our sponsors and supporters, who help make this ministry possible with their financial support.
Also, follow us on social media. We periodically post prayer requests online.

Support our mission while reaching our audience

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Calvary Chapel Magazine Sponsor. Not only does this help support the ministry of Calvary Chapel Magazine, but it can benefit your ministry or business by connecting you with our readers. You can choose either a 1/4, 1/2, or full page message in return for being a sponsor. We will also recognize you on our website and through our social media channels. To learn more specifics about the benefits of being a Magazine sponsor, contact us.
We have a unique audience. Calvary Chapel Magazine is the official printed publication of Calvary Chapel. Over 800 churches receive this magazine, a total of around 36,000 copies per quarter. Many copies are re-circulated, as readers are encouraged to share their copy with others. Contact us and we would be glad to provide you with a full media kit.
We recognize that many ministries who want to reach out to Calvary Chapel Magazine readers do not have access to professional design services. That is not a problem. If you would like help putting together your design, we would be glad to do that for you for no additional charge. Just send us the text and images you want, and we will create it. Of course, you are welcome to work with your own designer; we will be glad to send you the specifications and assist you with all of the technical details.
