Our Heart is Global

What’s My Role?

Jesus’ last words spoken on earth were, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News.” These words are known as the Great Commission and were not given to a group of missionaries but rather to those who called themselves followers of Jesus.

With 42% of the world still waiting to hear that Jesus loves them, we all have a part to play in this Global Project known as the Great Commission.

Listed below are just a few ways how you can personally be involved in fulfilling the Great Commission. If you want to learn more about the importance of each of these roles, please register for Explore.


Thousands within River Valley use their financial resources to support missionaries monthly and give toward special projects all over world through Kingdom Builders. As a sender, we ask God to help us steward the resources He has given us with the greatest measure of His Wisdom.


As followers of Jesus, we should love our neighbors and welcome those from other countries. This means being kind to those who look, speak and dress differently than we do, developing friendships with people of different ethnic backgrounds and even opening up our homes and lives to share the love of Jesus with them. Many from other countries will never be invited into a home or into the lives of a believer but it starts will a simple hello and an investment of time to build a meaningful relationship.


To mobilize means to help others discover their role in the Great Commission. Humbly share with others the need to reach those who have not heard about Jesus’ love and come alongside and encourage those who are obeying God in their journey overseas. Being a mobilizer requires a sacrifice of time, comfort and convenience.
