Local Outreach

The purpose of the Outreach Team is to reinforce the mission of River Oaks to build followers of Jesus who are sent to reach others.

This page is designed to help you get to know the local ministries that we partner with. In the details of each ministry there is an email to a River Oaks point-of-contact so that you can ask questions about their experience serving with that ministry. You can also keep up with the immediate needs for our local partners by following our ROCC Local Outreach Facebook Page.
