The mission of Radiant Church is “To know Christ, to become like Him and to mobilize His people for Kingdom Service." We consider the act of “mobilizing” missionaries & ministries as a privilege and calling for Radiant Church.
We give 22% of all tithes and offerings to missions (local & foreign) each year.
We take 2 special offerings on top of that:
one for the Persecuted Church and the second for the particular needs of our Missions Partners.
Each year the Missions Committee reviews & decides on our mission's commitments for the upcoming year. We pursue ministry relationships that are on a first name basis and look for partnerships with like-hearted people who share a similar passion and vision for ministry.
