Our passion for God and our love of the Gospel fuels our desire to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth (Matthew 28:18-20). These members of River Oaks have responded to the Gospel call of the Great Commission. It is our joy to support their ministries.
Ben & Becky Bacheller
Ben & Becky Bacheller are missionaries in Brazil with TEAM. After an initial 3 years in Brazil from 2011-2014, then 7 years working with TEAM as the Creation Care Specialist serving the North American and Global Church with teaching, training and mobilization in the area of Gospel-centered creation care, they returned to Brazil in 2021. Their focus in ministry is multi-faceted, and includes opening up their home for hospitality of Brazilian believers, a ministry of respite for Brazilians who need assistance in caring for the health of loved ones, serving in their local church, working alongside other mission organizations in Brazil in training their missionaries with Biblical and practical hands-on skills for those serving cross-culturally in Brazil and around the world, and increasing the impact of Christ-centered creation care missions through networks in the Kingdom of God.
Kathy serves on the Leadership Team for World Orphans, and she has the joy of participating in ongoing big-picture thinking, specifically keeping her eyes on wholistic care with the hope of seeing transformation & restoration happen through the power of the Gospel. She is responsible for facilitating the training and equipping of local international churches who are wholistically caring for vulnerable families in their communities.
Cowboys of the Cross
Cowboys of the Cross is a rodeo and bull riding ministry reaching out to the thousands of cowboys across North America and locally in East Tennessee. Scott travels to rodeos to share the gospel, lead “cowboy church” and devote time to discipleship. For hundreds of cowboys, Scott is their main link to their Christian beliefs, the dominant faith of the rodeo and bull riding industry.

About Our Church Partnership
Fountain of Hope
Facilitated by World Orphans, our church-to-church partnership with Fountain of Hope Church in Nairobi, Kenya has been growing for more than a decade.
Through the years, our partners in this beloved ministry have become like an extended family to us. We have encouraged one another, prayed with one another, and ministered alongside one another by striving side-by-side for the faith of the Gospel (Phil 1:27).
If you are interested in going on our annual trip to Fountain of Hope, or learning more about the partnership, please contact Kathy Davis.
