River of Life Church belongs to a missionary sending movement of churches called the Christian and Missionary Alliance. What that means for us is that missions are very much at the heart of our church.

We express our passion for missions in various ways. One way is our financial support of the C&MA's international ministries, through which we have sent some of our own members onto the mission field as career missionaries; Chuck and Robbi Fanberg, David and Christine Manfred or Julie Toivola are good examples of that.

As you can see another way of growing our experience and knowledge of missions is by going on short-term missions trips, like this one to Peru. These trips have been both evangelistic (drama, witnessing, preaching, and teaching) and work oriented (construction).

We think the best time to start experiencing missions is as a teen. In the summer of 2003, our youth pastor (at that time), Chaz, took three of our teens to Key West on a mission trip.

Julie Toivola, our former Children's ministry director, has followed God's call to be a full-time missionary in Cambodia with the C&MA. Julie is a representative of our next generation of missions; through ROL we have had a tradition of sending out missionaries. That is something we are proud of!
