We are called as a community of faith to share the Gospel message of God's love with others and call people forth into the hands-on ministry of Jesus Christ. As we journey together as ministry partners, we explore individual God-given gifts, talents, and blessings to continue to equip those who gather to go and share the Gospel message of love with the people we meet and hands-on service.
At River Valley Disciples we do not have the typical “members”. Instead, we have what we call Ministry Partners. A Ministry Partner is someone who would like to partner with and participate in, the ministry offerings of River Valley Disciples. Ministry Partners can be involved in the smallest ministry-related item or completely immersed in the largest ministry we have to offer. Ministry Partner’s contributions to River Valley Disciples can be work done behind the scenes, out front, or even remotely from anywhere in the world. If a Ministry Partner is active in their own church, we celebrate their commitment to their home church but so much appreciate their willingness to help River Valley Disciples in specific and measurable ways as a part of the larger body of Christ. Short or long term, Ministry Partners help River Valley Disciples in the significant ministry of Jesus Christ in today’s world.
