Missionary Action Plan
The Missionary Action Plan is for both those who are called to the mission field and for those who are just wanting to explore the possibilities.
We believe that it should be the mission of all Christians to participate in taking the good news of Jesus Christ to the entire world (Matthew 28:18-20). For many, they will become reliable supporters and senders, but it is our sincere prayer that God will raise up and send out hundreds from River Valley Church who are willing to say, “here am I Lord, send me” to those who have yet to hear.
We have created a MAP (Missionary Action Plan) designed to help build a strong missions foundation and support for those who will be sent out. Each journey will look different, but the goal is the same: to give all the glory to Jesus Christ as we spread the gospel to the ends of the earth.
Phase 1: Developing/Being – Character and Community
Phase 2: Discovering/Knowing – Awareness and Education
Phase 3: Doing – Leadership and Practical
Phase 4: Deploying – Going
This MAP is designed to take an individual between 12-24 months to complete, but in some cases, it may be completed much sooner or later. Regardless of how long it takes or where you end up, we believe that God is faithful and his timing is perfect.
A Global Advocate can be assigned to come alongside you on your missions journey. This individual can be viewed as a coach who will support you with prayer, encouragement, and, perhaps at times, challenge you to keep going.
