I have warned about Lausanne here and here.
"Lausanne and 7 Mountain Dominionism"
"The Lausanne Movement Bringing Evangelicals Into the Antichrist Fold"
As Billy Graham's outfit incorporating multiple denominations, churches and parachurch organizations, Lausanne's tenacles are everywhere, and that includes Calvary Chapel too.
The Lausanne movement is for world unity of all evangelicals under the social justice and ecumenical umbrella. By the way Lausanne has FULL blown Catholic connections, this is a way they are marching the evangelical world into the harlot. Lausanne is WORLDWIDE covering many countries, with multiple PARA-Church organizations of different names.
What I am noticing is a lot of connections to Lausanne leaders and organizations and lots of meetings, like a spider web.
See this one:Watch unto Prayer
I do not agree with everything on that website but they have some interesting information and some other discernment websites list Calvary Chapel as one of the facilitators of the Lausanne Covenant. Realizing the close connection of Calvary Chapel pastors with Billy Graham makes this very possible and very probable as well.
This is from many years ago, but it tells you some of the early connections.
Major buildings on the Wheaton campus sported names written in Korean. Not a word of English could be found in the program materials. There was only a token representation of non-Korean speakers, no doubt as a courtesy more than a necessity. Among them: Thomas Wang, international director, Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization; David Howard, general secretary, World Evangelical Fellowship; Ralph Winter, general director, U. S. Center for World Mission; Chuck Smith, senior pastor, Calvary Chapel, Southern California, and Archer Torrey, an Episcopalian missionary to Korea.

Then of course there is Ariel Fructembaum who is very popular in Calvary Chapel circles and I have mentioned before in articles about Jacob Prasch.
Dr. Arnold Fructenbaum - Executive Director, Ariel Ministries [member Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism/LCJE]

The World Christian Outreach Lausanne roots are admitted on their website:
"Stanton R. Herpick, founder and president of World Christian Outreach, Inc., attended the International Congress on World Evangelization in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1974, while a student at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, California.Here is another example.
At this significant, watershed missions conference organized by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Stan heard first hand accounts of the tremendous obstacles and challenges faced by our Lord’s church in foreign countries.
Through a set aside time of fasting and prayer in 1975 the name and vision for World Christian Outreach was born. The ministry incorporated in California March 28, 1976 as a 501©3 non-profit organization with the intent to..."
VisionNetwork now also called the New Zealand Christian Network is linked to Lausanne and admits it.
The Lausanne Movement is extending an invitation to evangelicals throughout the world to engage together over some of the most critical issues of our time bearing on world evangelisation. So that as many people as possible can benefit from the 3rd Lausanne Conference on world evangelisation taking place in October 2010, once each month Lausanne will publish an article a month on topics that relate to the Congressconference. visionnetwork is a partner with Lausanne through its membership in the WEA. visionnetwork is encouraging as many people as possible to join the Lausanne Global Conversation.
Pay attention to these lists, the sheer number of churches and denominations. A Calvary Chapel pastor is on this one too:
