“Tell of His glory among the nations, His wonderful deeds among all the peoples. For great is the Lord and greatly to be praised; He is to be feared above all gods.”—Psalm 96:3-4
The focus of the Outreach Ministry of River Oaks is to pray for the anointing and empowering of the Holy Spirit in all we do, grow a missions heart in the church family, support and nurture our long-term missionaries, provide short‐term cross‐cultural trips and projects, and raise up new missionaries.
If you feel this particular call on your life to go to the uttermost parts of the world, you may want to explore a career in foreign missions. Consider being a tent maker, in which you use your career cross-culturally. Start by participating in a domestic or international short-term ministry opportunity, or go on a short-term mission trip to another country.
Another way to be a part of the Outreach Ministry is to simply be engaged in ministry where you are. We encourage you to welcome the people of the world who come here, befriend international students attending community colleges and universities, reach out to refugees through ESL classes and resettlement ministry, and warmly host students in a foreign exchange program.
