"On Mission Together"

In addition to our own local ministry, we support and are involved in a variety of local and international ministries.


November 11-13

We will be doing a short-term missions trip to the New York School of Urban Ministry, a.k.a. NYSUM for three days of urban ministry on the streets of New York. We will be visiting neighborhoods to serve meals, provide clothing, give out toiletries and minister to the poor and homeless living in and around the city. 

Ministry training will be provided by our River staff prior to the trip and additional urban ministry training will be provided at NYSUM. 

The cost for this trip is $340 per-person. This includes transportation to and from NYC, Lodging and all meals at NYSUM. 



Love A Lot Children's Home

Accra, Ghana

Love A Lot Children's Home was founded by Pastor Charles & Mary Okang, pastors of The Happy Church. This children's home was founded with a vision to care for children abandoned either through the death of their parents or through neglect. We provide a loving home with food and clothing, schooling and a christian foundation. Where possible, we help the children find a new family through adoption. Where adoption is not possible, we create a new family within the Love A Lot family.
