RICHLAND CREEK MISSIONS

Pray.Give.Go.

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 Prayer card off the wall!
  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 richlandcreek.com/give
  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 offer 3-4 week long quarterly training classes on Wednesday nights. 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.

Visit with Pastor Nathan to see when the next Missions Training Class will be offered.

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.
If you are interested in one of our 7-10 day mission trips, please grab Short-Term Missions Flyer from the Missions Hub!

2021 Mission Trips

PROVO

Vision:
The Provo/Orem metro area in Utah is the least reached metro area in the United States. In a community where over 90% of the 620,000 residents identify has religious, only 0.5% identify as evangelical Christians. That means 99.5% of the people we engage have not placed their faith in the Biblical Gospel. Our vision is to pierce the spiritual darkness with the light of the Gospel by working with our Ministry Partners, the Neiser family, as they continue their ministry to college students and young adults.


Description:
 On this trip, we will engage in prayer walking on a local college campus, Gospel conversations on the street as we invite young adults to an Interfaith Dialogue, help lead in Gospel Conversations and Bible Study at the Interfaith Dialogue, help disciple and encourage several of the Christians in the ministry, and provide much needed Christian love and encouragement for the local church planters.


Cost/Details:
June 11-17, 2021; Average cost for lodging, food and travel is $700. Team Leader: Jase Brown

ROCKY MOUNTAIN CONSTRUCTION

Vision:
Many of the churches in the Western part of the US are in some of the least reached areas of the country. These smaller more rural churches are looking for Gospel centered partners to help them reach their community and improve their campus facilities. We are going to do just that! Our vision is to partner with Gospel preaching churches in a region that is diverse in beliefs and help them facilitate discipleship. Volunteers serve through construction, servant evangelism, prayer walking, and more. Our primary focus will assist in the construction or improvement of their church facility.


Description:
This mission trip is organized by the NC Baptist Men to aid in a construction project at New Day Fellowship Church in St. Regis, Montana. The church is constructing a 2,000 sq. foot parsonage during the summer of 2021. The congregation is one of very few evangelical churches along the I-90 corridor between Missoula and the Idaho border. Housing in the area is both sparse and very expensive, making it very difficult for the congregation to offer a pastor a living wage. The building of the parsonage will show the community that this growing church is committed, and here to stay. Its success will be dependent on volunteer teams. The slab for the addition will be poured in the fall or spring of 2021. We will need several teams to do framing, roofing, siding, sheetrock hanging and finishing, trim work, tile, painting, and other finish work. Kitchen helpers are needed too. 


Cost/Details:
July 24-31, 2021; Average cost for lodging, food and travel is $800-1000. Team Leader: Kyle Sutherland

Informational Meeting: 

Sunday, March 28 at 12pm in Room 121

Midterm Missions


Richland Creek's Midterm Missions program trains and equips members to spend a summer, a semester, or a year serving with one of our Ministry Partners.
If you are a student that is thinking about what to do this summer, or looking at graduation and want to spend some time on the mission field before the "real world" comes knocking, or a settled adult feeling God's call to the nations, or maybe even a retired couple that desires to stay busy for the Kingdom in retirement; what are you waiting for?
We have Ministry Partners here in the US and around the world that would love for you to serve with them as we seek to make His name great among the nations!

Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.

-Psalm 96:3
