The Gospel calls us to be a part of God's mission to build His kingdom. We seek to glorify God by declaring and displaying the gospel with our families, neighbors, co-workers, classmates and friends. We also desire to see healthy gospel-centered churches planted in some of the most unreached and unengaged places around the world.
"I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now." Philippians 1:3-5
Through prayer, financial giving, and sending of teams we partner with the following churches and missionaries to see the gospel go forth in greater Boston, the US, and the world.
Beacon Community Church
Beacon Community Church desires to share Christ, develop disciples, connect as a community, serve their neighbors, and multiply God's mission. Dane Helsing, their lead pastor, together with his wife Laura, planted Beacon Community Church in 2015 in Belmont, MA.
Global Mission Church NY
Global Mission is a Nepalese church plant that strives to be the center for the holistic transformation of their community, where spiritual, physical, social and emotional needs are met and people continue to celebrate the joy of fullness of life in Christ. Silvanus Bhandari, their lead pastor, together with his wife Aleno, planted Global Mission in 2015 in Forest Hills (Queens), NY.
Renaissance Church desires to love Jesus, others, and our world. James Copeland, their lead pastor, together with his wife Abi, planted Renaissance Church in 2015 in Montreal, Canada.

Mission Trip Updates
Written by: John Reddy
During the Columbus Day weekend, October 11-14, an RHC short-term mission team traveled to Montreal, to serve alongside of one of our partners, Renaissance Church. Located in the “Little Burgundy” section of this cosmopolitan city, the beginning gathering of followers of Jesus is reaching its community, where about 0.3% of the population attends a gospel church. Our team of 7 sought to both encourage the church planters and reach residents with the love and hope of Jesus. Here are some of the impactful highlights from this 4 day, 3 night experience:
Encourage/Serve the Church Planters
- Through providing childcare for a much needed 'date night', the church staff received the gift of time together and connection.
- We joined the team for Sunday morning setup, tear down, greeting, and worship.
- Later that afternoon, we traveled to another recent church plant, Voyage Church, who was sent out from Renaissance Church. We celebrated their 6th public Worship Service with them.
- With a focus on connecting with Montrealers, on Saturday, we provided a free coffee outreach at the Lionel-Grioux Metro Station, which is within walking distance of Renaissance Church. Our team was overjoyed to love people through giving free coffee and snacks, inviting people passing by to church, and sharing more of the “good news” through engaging in spiritual conversations with those who lingered around. We also offered sandwiches for the many, young homeless, doing that sensitively in the name of Jesus.
- On our last day, our group went to Mont Royale, which overlooks this city of 1.8 million people. There, we considered the great opportunity before us to be engaged in God's mission. Humbly, we committed ourselves to intercessory prayer and a future of “going” in the spirit of Jesus’ commissioning in Luke 10.

As uncomfortable as things were externally, the spiritual sense of lostness broke our hearts. On the first day, we visited a Hindu temple. It was sad to see so many people worshiping gods for healing or good fortune, but it’s all empty. Those gods aren't alive and don’t offer anything real. We watched as they placed special fabric on a specific tree to ward off evil spirits harming their families.
Queens, New York
"After getting off the 7 train at 74th and Broadway we were blindsided with culture. Smells, sounds, languages, clothing, music—all so foreign. It was hard to believe we were only a four hour drive from home.
