The purpose of the Outreach Team is to reinforce the vision of River Oaks to Reach those who do not have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ, to Build devoted and equipped followers of Christ, and to Send God’s people into the world to serve with compassion and conviction.

Relying upon the anointing and empowering of the Holy Spirit, we seek to grow a missions heart in the church family and to create missions awareness by providing relevant education and experiences.

On the international level, the Outreach Team supports and nurtures our long-term missionaries, who serve in various capacities— such as church planting, Bible translation, and ministry to orphans and street children. For those in our church family interested in first-hand missions experience, we offer short-term cross-cultural ministry opportunities.

In keeping with the Great Commission, our desire is to make disciples of Jesus among all people groups, specifically those to whom the Gospel has not been available. This has led us to adopt a particular unreached people group in South Asia for focused prayer and evangelism efforts.

We also want to develop an increased awareness of and passion for local outreach opportunities. We do this not only by sharing the Good News of the Gospel, but also by meeting practical needs of the homeless, the hungry, and the least resourced in our community.
