Reaching the world for Jesus Christ one person at a time is not just an empty tagline. It is the driving focus of our church and the Outreach Ministry seeks to provide opportunities for our people to put action to these words. Jesus last words in the Gospel of Matthew were, “Go into all the world and make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Outreach isn’t a program here at VRL, but permeates everything we do as we equip, engage and mobilize our body to serve and love those in our local and international community.

1. Loving Kids (Schools, Foster Care, and Adoption)LifeSongA Child’s Hope SpokaneEmbrace WashingtonOlive CrestSafe Families
