Missions at Riverside

The mission of Jesus is unmistakebly clear: "Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations..." We know that Jesus wants His church to share His love with people next door, and also those on every continent, from all ethnicities and language groups. At Riverside this passion is lived out through our relationships with Christian & Missionary Alliance (C&MA) partners in West Africa and Mexico. We also support the C&MA's Great Commission Fund which enables over 700+ international workers in 70 countries to assist local churches to start new churches and help people become fully devoted followers of Jesus. 

how Can I get involved globally?

You can get involved with global missions at Riverside as you:

PRAY:  Receive prayer updates from our partners around the world. Email us to sign up to receive monthly email updates.

GIVE:  All our giving to global missions goes through our Fuel for Global Missions Fund at Riverside. As outlined above, we partner with people in West Africa and Mexico, as well as our international workers around the world. Ready to give to the Fuel for Global Missions Fund? You can give here.

GO: We send short-term teams to assist our partners around the world.  As world travel opens up, we look forward to form teams to GO! Learn about our newest partnership is in Guadalajara, Mexico by watching the video below:

where does my giving go?

Riverside Church partners with different teams and a variety of global ministries in West Africa and Mexico and the Great Commission Fund to help us reach people who have not yet had the opportunity to hear about Jesus. Your giving to the Fuel for Global Missions Fund helps support missionaries and their ministries around the world. Ready to partner with us in giving? You can do so on our Give Page.
