Missions

GLOBAL MISSIONS
RFA Church is a missions-sending base. We believe that we are called as a church to build up and send out Spirit-filled agents of local and global transformation according to Acts 2:42-47 & Matthew 28:19-20. Quite simply, we are all about Jesus: His Gospel, His Mission, and all for His Glory.
Our missions efforts at RFA Church are based on fulfilling the Great Commission of Christ, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you.”(Matthew 28:19-20). The mandate of missions also includes ministry to the totality of human need, “feed the hungry…clothe the naked…visit the sick and imprisoned.” (Matthew 25:31-46). The geographic scope of missions is “Jerusalem…Judea and Samaria…and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8), a viewpoint that is also part of the missions mandate, as is much prayer, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.” (Matthew 9:37-38).
Because so many of the world’s population live in regions that are either hostile to or unaware of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, our priorities will continue to emphasize those areas of the world, and future financial commitments will of necessity reflect that priority. “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached to all people groups for a witness to all people, and then the end shall come.” (Matthew 24:14).  For further information about missions at RFA Church, please contact Jason Cole at jcole@rfachurch.org or (919)781-3249 for more information.

MISSION TRIPS
Short-term Mission Trips
There are several short-term missions opportunities available at RFA that will affect nearly every continent of the world. No matter your vocation, gift, or strength there is a place for you to serve! We encourage all of our members to try a short-term mission trip at least once. You will feel the joy of striving for a noble purpose in the Kingdom of God and will develop lasting friendships with your team and with the people to whom you minister.  If you are interested in more information on short-term mission trips, contact Jason Cole at jcole@rfachurch.org.
Adopt-A-Missionary Program
Individuals, families, or small groups can “adopt” a missionary family by encouraging, communicating with, and praying for them on a continual basis. If you are interested in participating or would like more information on the “adopt-a-missionary” program, contact Bob Stock at bstock77@earthlink.net.
Long-term Missions Opportunities
RFA also partners with several national and international groups to send missionaries throughout the world. If you think God is calling you to the long-term missions field, we can help get you through the process. Contact Jason Cole at jcole@rfachurch.org or (919)781-3249 for more information.
