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!

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!

Scotland - Hope Church Bingham (20 Schemes)
November 2022 (Team already full)

Vision Statement: In November 2022, Richland Creek Community Church will take a small team to Edinburgh, Scotland, to work with Hope Church Bingham. In 2019 Richland Creek developed a relationship with Gerald White, a church plater through the 20schemes network, before planting the church in October 2020 in the government housing neighborhood of Bingham and Magdalene. While there, our team will serve alongside the members of Hope Church Bingham, attend a 20schemes conference, and share the gospel in the community. The neighborhood (scheme) of Bingham & Magdalene is home to 3,800 people, with only .2% claiming to be a follower of Jesus.

The Scottish government measures deprivation by looking at 7 factors: employment, health, education, access to services, life expectancy, crime, and housing. Lives are devastated by drugs, alcohol, loneliness, crime, neglect, poverty, and abuse. The schemes are places of terror and hopelessness to some, but to many millions, they are simply home. The schemes' biggest crisis and most crippling poverty is not drugs or alcohol or neglect; it is spiritual! Millions of people are perishing without the gospel and are unengaged by the church. We believe the local church is the answer and the heart of the 20 Schemes Network is to plant faithful gospel-preaching churches in these schemes so that the hope of Jesus will be available to them! 

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

-Psalm 96:3
