No need to fly far, Start your mission here

Have you ever been motivated and eager to follow God’s teaching and fulfill his Great Commission? Are you worrying that you do not have time to travel for mission? Are you worrying for the travel expenses for mission? I invite you to do local missions with us in the cities you work and live with very flexible schedules in the mist of your professional schedules and daily life. By God’s love, reach out to help peoples of all ethnicities such as the students from low-income families, the seniors in assistant living facilities, the people in need of food, etc. Come! Witness God’s miracles and mighty work, Experience his faithfulness of his promises, and Testify God’s love flowing in this place. Please take some time to watch our testimony: 

Love Seniors

We are providing community service at four assistant living senior centers in  San Jose, West San Jose, and Hayward. Let’s bring God’s hope, joy, and love to the seniors and lead them to Christ!

1. Individual Visit (1-to-1 visit): 1 or 2 people adopt 1 or 2 seniors and visit 1 hour, every other week. Establish a personal connection by talking, listening, and praying with the senior and give emotional and spiritual support.

2. Group Visit: Groups of 3 or more (no more than 12) can plan programs that first share the gospel through music, testimony, dance, and all sorts of inspiring, cheerful and creative performance and then have interactions with them and pray for them. Bless them to receive God’s love, hope and peace.

3. Small group bible study: Groups of 1~4 to lead worships, read and share bible passages, and pray with the seniors. Encourage them to trust in the Lord, and be joyful.

Prayer Tent

Have you ever worry how to share gospels to non-believers, and where to find these people? Have you ever find ourselves embarrassed to pass on gospel fryers to people in front of a supermarket? Do you know that there are almost 3,497 families coming to the River of Life Foundation Food Pantry Center to receive food each week at the River of Life Christian church? Most of these drivers are non-believers, never attend Sunday Service at a church, nor been prayed for. We have set up a Prayer Tent near the River of Life Foundation Food Pantry Center from 2pm to 4pm every Sunday afternoon with the intention to bless those who come to pick up food and pray for their needs. In the past weeks, many people stopped by after they picked up food. They walked in to our tent asking for a prayer, or stopped on the side asking for a drive-through prayer. Every Sunday there are more than 300 cars, potentially mostly non-believers, proactively step into River of Life Christian Church for their physical needs, we could easily reach out to them and bless their spiritual needs, encourage them, comfort them. Mission is so easy at this corner of our church! Loving people is so simple when you come and reach out your hands to bless them after church on Sunday! Come! I sincerely invite you!

Tutoring Kids

Do you know that you could share Gospel through your academic expertise? Are you good at math? Are you good at reading or writing in English? There is a volunteer online tutoring opportunity for you.

Each tutor will be paired up with a tutee (ranging from elementary to high school age). Tutoring is weekly basis for an hour with one student from a low-income family who wants their child to gain extra helps in reading, writing, and/or math. For low-income families, this tutoring could be their first opportunity and hope to advance to higher education for their children. Through this academic tutoring, you’re also bringing friendship, giving emotional support to increase their self-esteem, helping them thrive, and share Gospel via your love and cares. 

This is a good chance to do local mission to demonstrate Christ’s love to the kids and to bring transformation to their families!
