Global Missions

One Day to Feed the World

Riverside receives an annual offering as part of the compassion initiative of Convoy of Hope called

"One Day to Feed the World". In addition to natural disaster relief and recovery services, Convoy of Hope's feeding initiatives serve over 125,000 children each day. Each $1 given is leveraged into $7 worth of food, water and supplies because of corporate partner donations.

Care for Kids

Riverside collects coins (and cash) for the Southeast Asia Prayer Center (SEAPC) Coins for Kids projects every year during Lent (pre-Easter) to provide for children in need overseas. These funds are disbursed to ministries providing care for children such as building renovations at Charity Children’s Home in Myanmar, needs in children's homes in Cambodia, and Touching Hearts in Tibet providing heart surgeries to children with heart defects. 

Short-Term Mission Trips

We offer various opportunities to travel for the purpose of short-term missions. Each year we have several opportunities to travel with our medical missions team to various regions including South East Asia, Mexico, Latin America, etc. We have also sent teams to Kenya through our Convoy of Hope partnership. We have sent youth and adults to Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand, India, Indonesia, China and Tibet through our partnership with South East Asia Prayer Center and youth teams to the Dominican Republic.
