We are part of the Assemblies of God which was birthed in 1914 primarily as a missionary sending organization. This is our heritage and it's still the core of our DNA.
At the River Church we’re all about people finding and following Jesus Christ. Really, That’s what we’re all about. So “missions” is huge for us.
Missions is a broad word that basically describes our efforts to introduce people to Jesus. We want that opportunity to be available here in Duluth, throughout the region, the state, the country, and all over the world. (Acts 1:8, Matthew 28:19-20)
So… all week we’re working toward that here in Duluth, but we also have a strategy to engage on multiple levels beyond Duluth. We financially support over 25 missionaries and organizations that ensure people are being introduced to Jesus and are receiving help on how to follow Him. We also send out teams nearly every year on trips locally, stateside or out of country as the Lord leads.
