Calvary has a partnership with Yugo Ministries to build homes in Mexico. YUGO partners with local pastors in Mexico to build homes for families. Over the past few years, Calvary has sent multiple teams for life-changing experiences in Ensenada.
Yugo Mission trips are unique in that they provide a mix of Christian conference and mission. Their program is designed for teams to build community and grow in their faith while they are serving on mission. They offer multiple small group meeting venues, sports like basketball and ping pong, as well as morning and evening chapel services which consist of contemporary praise and worship and solid Biblical teaching by many of their missionaries and national staff.
