We believe that lost people matter to God. Therefore, lost people matter to the church. Sharing the good news of the gospel (that Jesus’ death on the cross and resurrection restores our relationship with God) is the most important thing we can do as believers.
RiverValley views missionary work not only for those who are called to work in full-time missions, but for everyone in the local body. Jesus tells us to go into the world and make disciples baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
At RVC, we support the following missionaries who are serving either overseas or stateside:
Cru is a community passionate about connecting people to Jesus Christ. Our purpose is helping to fulfill the great Commission in the power of the Holy Spirit by winning people to faith in Jesus Christ, building them in their faith, and sending them to win and build others and helping the body of Christ to evangelism and discipleship through a variety of creative ways.
Dana and Carolyn Belton have served for more than 30 years in ministry within the Evangelical Church in Zambia through discipleship and leadership training, teaching, preaching, providing materials for church growth in seven local languages and more recently, assisting Amano Christian School with teaching and administration.
RiverValley has a Missions team that meets monthly to consider what requests meet our criteria for support as well as to maintain good communication and support with existing missionaries.
