At River of Life we strive to love our neighbor by spreading the Gospel to all corners of the world. In order to live out our vision of Our Community in the Greater Community for the Glory of God, we support local, national, and international missions and missionaries.

We reach out to those in our community through a variety of efforts including Sunday services, bible studies, Small Groups, and Community Bible Camp, as well as student and adult-led mission trips.

In addition, we recognize the need to share the gospel with those beyond our immediate community, and seek to do this through financial and prayerful support of the following regional mission organizations:

  • Abba Crisis Pregnancy Center
  • Family Life Ministries
  • Reign Ministries
  • Cody James Ministries
  • Elk River Timber Bay
  • Young Life
  • The Power To Do Something
  • Cebu Orphanage
  • EFCA Reach Global
  • and others

We also reach out to those beyond our community by supporting missionaries around the globe. From the persecuted Church, to East Asia, to the Philippines, to Costa Rica and Nicaragua, our desire is to bring hope and abiding faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to our world.

Each year we offer students and adults the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus by traveling to either a national or international location. Past trips have included Costa Rica, Nicaragua, India, Peru, Honduras, Mexico, Texas, Pennsylvania, Colorado, and inner-city Minneapolis.
