What is missions and why does it matter?

Before ascending into heaven Jesus commanded His disciples to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18-20). We believe that missions is more than an itemized church program. Rather, missions is the duty of the church with the glory of God as its goal.

We’ve had the opportunity to participate in the following overseas mission trips:

  • vision trip to milan, italy on college campuses & to promote english link classes

  • Vacation Bible School with Pura Vida Missions, Costa Rica

  • Construction & teaching with Pura Vida Missions, Costa Rica

  • Apologetics mission trip in Transylvania, Romania

  • operation christmas child

  • Vacation Bible School with FBC Montreal, Canada.

  • Individual RMBC members have served on trips to India, Italy, Brazil, Puerto rico, africa, and Nicaragua.

our stateside mission trips have included:

  • south hamptonn roads mission project (shrmp) -week long summer trip for youth & adults at public housing complexes across south norfolk.

  • reach – week long spring break camp spent in community service.

  • Student Fusion  Mission Camp in Richmond & christiansburg, Virginia

  • Hurricane Sandy disaster relief mission trip, affected areas of New Jersey

  • swag (serving, worshiping & glorifying god) ministry at public housing in town with bi-monthly community service events and a week long outdoor vbs ministry

  • Community Thanksgiving Outreach Meal

  • Inmate Thanksgiving Meal 

  • Jail Ministry

  • Reach Out  Evangelism & visitation

We budget a sizable portion for missions work internationally, stateside and locally as well as provide various opportunities to be a “sender.” A few of these are:

  • International Missions offerings lottie moon, annie armstrong

  • North American Missions offering

  • Great Commission Fund (off-sets the cost for RMBC members to go on mission trips)

We strongly believe local, cross-cultural, and overseas missions work hand-in-hand. Come join us as we strive to make much of Jesus by loving people through sharing the Gospel! Contact us for more info about how you can connect on mission!
