Minister John Piper famously said, "Missions exists because worship doesn't." We heartily agree and so mobilize our congregation to mission and to support mission work locally and globally.

Missions Conference

Every year, Riveroaks holds a Missions Conference in the spring to hear updates from missionaries about the areas in which they are serving.

Global Missions

The importance Riveroaks places on outreach through missionary support is evident by the fact that 20% of our budget goes toward their support. We currently are supporting 25 missionaries and their families around the world with our finances and prayer encouragement.

Reformed University Fellowship (RUF)

As a ministry of the PCA, RUF holds to the core beliefs of historic Christianity which motivate a heart for God and love for the university. The purpose of RUF is to build a community on the college campus that reaches students of divergent beliefs and doubts with the message of the gospel and equips them to love and serve Jesus and His church.

Riveroaks is blessed to send many of our high school graduates to college campuses where RUF is strong. We are also blessed to see many of those same students grow to serve the Lord as part of RUF's staff. Riveroaks is committed to supporting the work of the ministers and staff on those campuses around us. (see ruf.org)

Mission to the World (MTW)

We want the gospel to spread throughout the world, the Church to grow, Satan's kingdom destroyed, and Christ's reign extended to the ends of the earth.

We are called to be obedient to the Great Commission by teaching people to follow Jesus as Lord and Savior, to be baptized, and to obey all that Jesus commands.

Mission to North America (MNA)

MNA Vision Statement:

Serving the Church to Advance God’s Kingdom


MNA: Serving the Church to Advance God’s Kingdom
…with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the Gospel. (Philippians 1:27)

OUR CALLING: MNA coordinates church planting and missional partnerships to serve PCA churches and presbyteries in North America in their mission to grow and multiply biblically healthy churches.

OUR VISION: That God, by His grace and for His own glory, will transform the PCA into a grassroots church planting culture.

Community Engagement

Would the community around Riveroaks notice if we moved or ceased to exist? This question -- and much more the command to love our neighbors as ourselves -- moves us to connect and serve in our community. Here are a few places we are seeking to give and receive:


  • The Village at Germantown

  • The Germantown Chamber of Commerce

  • The Germantown Council of Faith

  • Riverdale Middle School Bible Club

  • The National Day of Prayer
