The Calvary Family of Churches is planting a new church in the southwest part of Denver!
Calvary West Littleton is launching in February 2021.
Why Church Planting?
Church planting is the primary means God uses to advance His kingdom.
The pattern we see in Scripture:
- Jesus commands His followers to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them and teaching them to obey all that He has commanded (Mt. 28:19-20).
- New disciples join a local church and are discipled in the context of that church family (Acts 2:42-47, 1 Cor. 12:12-14).
- Each local church’s chief method of evangelizing the lost and making more disciples was through the planting of other churches (Titus 1:5).
The apostle Paul, the first missionary, is an example of someone who carried out this simple strategy: he went into cities, preached the gospel and planted churches.
For 2,000 years the Church has grown through the God-given method of multiplying disciples who form and multiply churches. It is our longing to be a part of this eternity-shaping history, and we pray that you will join us.
Why West Littleton?
The west part of Littleton, Colo., is located in the southwest region of Denver. In West Littleton, only a small minority of people have a relationship with Jesus and the amount of healthy, gospel-centered churches are small in number. Of the 150,000 people in the West Littleton area, more than 90% do not attend an evangelical church.
We want to change that!
Who We Are
The Burget Family
Blake hails from the great state of Oklahoma and Kristen is an Oregonian from the beautiful Pacific Northwest. We met and fell in love in the mountains of Denver, Colo., while attending Colorado Christian University (CCU). After graduating from CCU and marrying in 2009, Blake soon felt called into pastoral ministry while interning at an incredible church. Once Kristen completed her masters degree in counseling, Blake pursued his Master of Divinity at Denver Seminary.
We have lived, ministered and pastored in Littleton for the past eight years. Our family has fallen in love with this city and its people, and we know firsthand the enormous need this area has for the gospel. Our greatest desire is to be used by God to establish a church that is passionate about Jesus, faithful to the Word, committed to prayer and devoted in love for one another.
We believe that prayer is the most powerful thing you can do on our behalf. Join our prayer team for updates on how you can specifically pray for us and our church. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for our prayer team. We will send you short videos that include specific ways you can pray for our family and Calvary West Littleton.
One of the greatest blessings a church plant can have is a dedicated group of individuals who have committed to go and advance the gospel together. Whether you are in Denver or out of state, please prayerfully consider joining our plant team. We would love the opportunity to share a meal with you to simply share more of our vision for this part of the city and Calvary West Littleton.
Due to our context, and in order to establish Calvary West Littleton for the long run, we rely on the generosity of the larger body of Christ. If you feel led by the Holy Spirit to joyfully partner with us financially, visit https://donorbox.org/
