Mission Opportunites

Short-Term Mission Projects

These projects work in conjunction with our partnerships in the USA and around the world. We have ongoing relationships between RBC and a partner on the mission field. A Short-Term Mission Project typically lasts 7-10 days and most often requires four to five months of preparation and follow-up within a team context.  Contact us if you are interested in being part of a short-term mission team.

Family Mission Adventure

Families spend 4 days doing missions together at a location within a 200 mile radius of Springfield.

Mission Possible

Since 1997, this annual event has sent hundreds of Ridgecrest members into the community to help those physically or financially unable to do home repairs and yard work. We also seek to share the Gospel with people as we serve.

Celebrate Recovery Inside

As a branch of our local Celebrate Recovery program, Celebrate Recovery Inside takes their life changing curriculum to the inmates of the Fordland Correctional Center. You will experience opportunities to minister in small break-out groups and in large group worship.

Smart Choice Foods

Smart Choice Foods is a food distribution program that seeks to serve our community. Food distribution takes place at our Remington’s facility (1655 W Republic Rd, Springfield, MO 65807). We have opportunities for people to serve in the distribution center as well as with our Street Teams.

Missions and Evangelism Team leaders and Special Projects

Do you have a heart for sharing Jesus with people?  We would love to have you as part of our team!  We have many avenues of service, ranging from research, social media and technology, video production, graphic design, and planning for mission teams and special projects.
