This mission is our Global Project.

Reaching the entire world with the Good News of Jesus Christ is a big task but it’s what Jesus asked all his followers to do.

At River Valley Church, Global Project is what we call our global missions efforts and through Global Project, we all have the opportunity to participate in this great mission that Jesus Christ asked us to be a part of.

Missions isn’t the goal, worship is the goal.

This World Needs Jesus song story from our recent River Valley Worship album, Million Lifetimes, highlights the importance of prayer in missions work.

Global Teams

Due to the impact of the coronavirus worldwide, we are continually monitoring the U.S. Department of State travel advisories and connecting with in-country hosts to make ongoing informed decisions regarding our Global Teams. 

Every month, teams of volunteers from River Valley Church travel around the world to help meet physical and spiritual needs and share the love of Jesus Christ. It is our goal that every person in our church goes on a Global Team within three years of coming to River Valley Church. Global Teams can cost as little as $400 for a weekend team or as much as $4000 for a longer 10-12 day team but no matter how long or how much, going is always worth the investment.

Missionaries and Organizations

River Valley currently supports approximately 300 missionaries and organizations serving around the world but has a vision of sending 500 of our very own globally for at least one year and pray about a lifetime.


Across campuses and in homes, Explore is part of the “core” level of Lifegroups offered for discipleship, growth, equipping, and community. These groups are the best way to engage, understand, and take part in the Great Commission through Global Project which is God’s heart for the world.

Missionary Action Plan (MAP)

With a vision of sending 500 of our very own overseas for at least one year and pray about a lifetime, we have developed a Missionary Action Plan (MAP) to help those interested figure out if they are one of the 500.
