We believe it is vital for a follower of Jesus to see the world with God’s eyes, experience first hand what he is doing beyond where we live and partner through relationship with the global church that is bringing the whole Gospel to the nations. Christianity does not reside only in the USA but also around the world. We have much to learn and discover from our brothers and sisters in Christ from every tribe and nation. Real Life Church has relationships with fellow followers in Mexico, Haiti, Dominican Republic, India and Uganda. We take trips to all of these locations throughout the year and invite you to check out what level of trip may be right for you.
Paris Church Plant
The need for the gospel in the city of Paris is enormous. If Paris had 1 church for every 10,000 inhabitants, it would need at least 150 new churches in central Paris alone! Real Life is partnering with Orchard Group as they work with Etienne and Laurence Koning to plant a church in the 9th Arrondissement of Paris in 2017.
Josiah Venture (Cory & Anissa Simon)
Cory & Anissa Simon are a missionary team that Real Life Church supports to spread the Word through the Czech Republic.
Stadia is working in several Central and South American countries to plant churches with national, indigenous leaders. Real Life is partnering with them to plant two churches in Bolivia. As the churches are planted, they are able to serve their communities through child sponsorships that people from Real Life will be able to fulfill.
International Justice Mission
IJM is a team of lawyers, investigators, social workers, community activists and other professionals that work to protect the poor from violence through 17 field offices throughout Africa, Latin America and South and Southeast Asia—and 95% of them are at work in our own countries.
Over 1.2 million children are trafficked each year for the purpose of sexual exploitation. Conservative estimates say that of that number, over 400,000 are boys. Tragically, there has been almost no help or hope for victimized boys anywhere on the planet. Blackbox was created to change that. Established in 2010, Blackbox works to helps the boys, once trafficked for sex, find healing from their past, joy in their present, and purpose for their future. We believe that they will not only be restored from the hurt and confusion that has been inflicted upon them, but also that they will one day be men who change the world.
