Outreach follows the command from Acts 1:8 to be God’s witnesses locally and internationally. We come alongside local ministries that fall within our 4 Aims (Loving Kids, Redeeming Stories, Planting Churches, and Discipling Nations) by supporting them through prayer, finances, and people. The ultimate goal of each partnership is to introduce people to Christ, help fulfill the vision and mission of our partners, and to disciple our people.
We want VRL to have a presence throughout our community, accomplished by people being engaged outside of our church. Our primary focus is working with schools, foster care, pregnancy, trafficking, poverty, and refugees. You can get involved by volunteering time with one of our local partners, being involved with some of our initiatives that happen during weekend services like food drives and school supply drives, or being available as needs present themselves. Our goal is to show people the love of Christ in tangible ways, and connect them to the body of Christ. There are many, many opportunities throughout the year to connect.
