At Richland Creek, we desire for 100% of our members to be engaged in missions, discipleship, and disciple-making! There are three ways you can do this:

  1. Pray for our ministry partners and missions teams as they make His name great among the nations. Feel free to grab a missions card from our next steps area in the front foyer. 
  2. Give sacrificially to our missions efforts as an investment in the advancement of the Gospel around the world. You can do this here at the church or online at
  3. Go to your Neighbors and the Nations with the Good News of Salvation through Jesus Christ.

We have many missions opportunities going on this year; some will be local, some national, and some international. Be in prayer about where you and your family should go this year!

Missions Statement

Richland Creek Missions fulfills our vision for making His name great among the nations by:

  1. Partnering with church planters and missionaries, who share our “Creek DNA” for the uncompromised teaching of God’s Word and uncompromised proclamation of the Gospel.
  2. Through these partnerships, we focus on Evangelism, Discipleship, Church Planting, and Pastoral Equipping opportunities in some of the least reached areas of the Globe.

In this we fulfill what we see modeled by the early church in Acts 14:21-28.

Partner Care Ministry

Our Partner Care Ministry pairs up members of Richland Creek and their Life Groups with one of our Ministry Partners serving here in the US or around the world. The purpose of this Ministry is to encourage and support our partners in the difficult, and often discouraging, work of the Gospel. This way we build real relationships with our partners, share information about their ministry with the church, pray for them regularly, and participate in Mission Trips to work with them.
Check with your Life Group Leader to see if your Life Group is participating in this ministry!

Missions Training

At Richland Creek, we desire for all of our members to be effective and passionate stewards of the Gospel! To help equip our members in this life defining task, we regularly offer training classes. These classes will familiarize you will everything Richland Creek Missions and equip you take the Gospel across the street and around the world! We encourage the entire church to participate in one of these classes, but it is required if you are going on a Richland Creek sponsored mission trip.

Short Term Trips

Did you know that 84% of Short-Term Mission Trips are to the most evangelized parts of the world that only make up 1/3 of the population?
While it is critical that the Gospel continue to go forth in every place, our focus with Short-Term Missions at Richland Creek is to specifically target these least reached areas in the US and around the World.
We do this through our partnerships with church planters and missionaries who live there, engage people with the Gospel, disciple them in their faith, raise of leaders and pastors, and plant churches.

Your generosity can be the key to reaching the world with the gospel.
