Jesus had a relationship OUT with the world.
We believe God is working outside the walls of RiverTree Lake, so we link arms with our ministry partners to go and make disciples of Jesus one person, one family, and one neighborhood at a time.
Our ministry partners share a similar vision and mission. These partners are local, regional and global organizations that we are called serve alongside relationally. Our ministry partners will also receive ten percent of our financial resources in 2017.
Jesus and his disciples went out to their wider community, letting their lives speak louder than words. We are made to be a part of God’s mission and are sent to serve and love people in Jesus’ name. We are made to have loving relationships OUT with the world around us.
