Missions

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:
