WORLD MISSIONS

Rimrock's desire is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the World.  Following Christ’s command (Acts 1:8) we start in our Jerusalem (Rapid City) and expand to Judea (Black Hills Region), Samaria (USA) and the ends of the earth.  Our World Mission Team follows the Lord in leading Rimrock to “the ends of the earth”; with a vision to partner with international and cross-cultural missionaries.  God has blessed this desire with some incredible missionary partners; some raised at Rimrock.  All whom we have grown to love, have assisted with short term teams, provide financial assistance to build deep meaningful relationships.

At Rimrock, we also want to encourage Rimrockers to follow /experience / reflect the Lord to the ends of the earth. So we enjoy being a resource of prayer, encouragement, financial assistance as He leads us to partner with short term missionaries.

SOUTH OF THE BORDER (SOTB)

Thanks Rimrockers for being a part of what God has been doing since 1997 through South of the Border Ministry. You have blessed many Latin Americans through your prayers and financial support. A special thanks to the nearly 120 folks who have walked on Latin American soil for Christ. In those nearly 19 years, many Latin Americans have placed their faith in Jesus Christ and leaders have been encouraged & resourced to share Christ's love within their communities through the 20 different Rimrock teams following Christ into Venezuela, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Mexico. On this side of the border many Rimrockers have been transformed by their experience as well. And since SOTB's goal is partnering with Latin ministries/leaders, we are praying that planted & watered seeds will continue to grow.

Costa Rica

Since 2006, Rimrock SOTB team has partnered with Costa Rican UNILIC/INCRESE Ministry who train pastors and plant churches. Watching God's plan for Costa Rica has been incredible. From their inception in 2001, 100's of CR pastors (all denominations) have been trained though INCRESE & over 30 churches are now a part of UNILIC. And what is fantastic, God has opened doors to train pastors in most Central America countries, Mexico, Brazil, and even Cuba (800 pastors). The potential impact on Latin American pastors is mind-boggling as they follow the Spirit's lead.  /files/adults/Missions/sotb3.jpg

Through our partnership we have sent many teams (medical, leadership training, construction, soccer, pastor/wife retreats, Biblical counseling, etc.) to assist churches ministering within their communities and helping train pastors/church leaders. Since we see God using INCRESE/UNILIC we want to continue investing in His ministry thru them.

/files/adults/Missions/sotb1.JPGSo in ongoing conversations and prayer with Pastors Jose & Eduardo, each year we learn how Rimrock can come alongside them to encourage, resource, and partner with them in ministry. It is a wonderful relationship which we hope continues far into the future.

Please continue to pray for the INCRESE/UNILIC leadership in Costa Rica.

God is using them mightily to impact on Costa Rica and much of Latin America. And we are thrilled that God has led us into this partnership.
