Ordination & Commissioning

A one-year ordination and commissioning cohort program provides men and women with guided preparation for future church leadership.

These theological terms are used differently in churches and denominations around the world. At Calvary, ordination is the process where the elders recognize and affirm that the Spirit has called a man to life-long pastoral ministry. Commissioning is the process where the elders set apart men and women for ministry, affirming the Spirit’s call on their lives.


The Leadership Development Forum teaches spiritual formation principles and leadership fundamentals to men and women serving at Calvary.

Worship Residents

In partnership with Jordan Koller and The Local Church, The Jerusalem Project funds the School of Worship, a one-year worship leader training program. Launched in October 2020, the School of Worship provides theological training, practical experience and intentional coaching to men and women who desire to become worship leaders in a local church setting. School of Worship students regularly lead worship at a local church, learn how to pastor worship teams, and gain insight from a collective of area pastors and worship leaders.
