Missions Team

Mission Statement

The purpose of the River Church Missions Team is to support local and international ministries that spread the gospel. Our goal is not to be a check writing body but a committee that supports those ministries with our prayers, time, energy and money. We seek to forge long lasting relationships with these ministries, and to provide a connection between their work in the field with the larger congregation.

  1. We have the unique responsibility of supporting missionaries and their organizations. Each member is responsible for regular contact and prayers for their ministries.
  2. Meetings will be held on a regular basis. Typically on a bi-monthly basis on the 3rd Sunday. If all members are not present, then 2/3 of members will form a quorum.
  3. Prayer Meetings will be held on a monthly basis.
  4. All members are friends and fellow servants, bound by love and honor which come from God alone. “There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.” 1 Corinthians 12:5,12.
  5. Missions Team members should:
    -Be able to meet regularly and often.
    -Think and decide with the good of the Body of Christ in mind rather than their own personal desires or wants
