North River has several church plants across the globe in South Sudan, India, Brazil, Ukraine, and Mexico. We wish to never see the sun set on the work of our church so we will continue to plant churches around the world. Below are some places and ministries that we support around the world.
South Sudan is a brand new nation that is open and hungry for the Gospel of Christ. We have an amazing opportunity to be a part of teaching and training the men in Akot to be pastors and go out among their region sharing their faith. Evangelism, discipleship, and construction are projects that are available. We partner with Living Water Community Transformation in our efforts in Akot, South Sudan. LWCT works in many areas including education, agriculture, health, life-skill development along with the pastoral training. For more information on Living Water please visit their website at http://livingwaterct.org/.
In Juba, South Sudan we have the River Baptist Church that is a part of our campus. Our pastor, Elijah, is ministering to the people of Juba and their church has been growing rapidly over the past few years.
The world is being devastated by a famine of God’s word and–as with any kind of famine–it is the young who are being hit the hardest. Time is short and yet there is so much to be done before Christ returns. Therefore, The Grain Game shares the redemption story with kids, ages 10-15, in every corner of the world. Using stunts, games, toys, and science tricks—our camps capture the imagination of these kids, point their hearts to Christ and help them store up the grain of God’s Word.
To obey God by spreading the Gospel to the unreached regions of Guatemala while supporting the established missionary group IMPACTO.
Following our vision of planting churches globally we will be continuing a work we are involved with in Chennai. We will have opportunity to work among those that are involved with North River Missions in India with evangelism, medical aid, adult ministry and children’s worship. We also support an orphanage in Kallakurichi named Comforting Hands. Currently there are 24 children being cared for and receiving education, clothing, shelter, food and most importantly love. We are looking to raise the funds needed to build a suitable orphanage/church/ministry center for the people of Kallakurichi.
Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.
Operation Christmas Child (Samaritan’s Purse)
The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Cruise with a Cause
Our mission is to Unify Christians and Ministries from all over the world to build the Kingdom of God
Our purpose for the Brasil trips is to continue encouraging the local church and participate in multiple evangelism, VBS and construction opportunities.
The area of Christable Colon is desolate and poverty stricken. We work with a pastor in the village as he reaches the area for Christ. We take annual trips to the village and do a VBS ministry for the children and construction to homes and the church. This past summer we started a soccer outreach aspect to the trip and saw a great reward in it. This is a low cost trip that is international but remains a great trip to start mission on. We stay in Texas at a retreat center and drive into Mexico each day. This is a trip for virtually anyone!
At our coffee bar on Sunday mornings we serve GoBena Coffee where 100% of their profits go to enriching the lives of vulnerable and/or orphaned children.
