Raising up a core team in and around Las Animas

Planting in Las Animas is a goal of the pastors of Calvary La Junta. We see the need for a gospel witness in Las Animas and are working to raise up a church planter and core team to form Calvary Las Animas.

The pastors of La Junta would love to meet with you to share their plans to reach the Las Animas area with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

If you are interested in hearing more about Calvary Las Animas and how you can help, please email us at lasanimas@thecalvary.org and we will reach out to you soon!


If you are interested in attending services at Calvary La Junta, that congregation meets at 10:45 a.m. at 421 Colorado Ave., La Junta, CO 81050.



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.


We are in desperate need now of people who want to see faithful, biblical churches healthy and thriving! This new Calvary Church needs your prayers and potentially your involvement. Please join us to worship, connect, grow, and share the Gospel boldly. Also, we would love to hear from you if you are being led to be a part of this church’s new core team. We would love to visit in more detail about how good soil, water and sunlight translates to bringing a church back to life. If you would like to visit, just connect with us through our email, lasanimas@thecalvary.org, to set up a time to talk.
