At Riverside, we believe that a significant way of impacting our world with the message of hope found in Jesus Christ is by starting new churches. We accomplish this by partnering with like-hearted churches and organizations. Here are our current local, regional, national, and international partnerships...
Thousands of churches give to the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) cooperative fund. The funds then go out to support new church plants around the country through the North American Mission Board. Riverside contributes to this cooperative fund. Your faithful giving is making a difference for the gospel!
