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 are missionaries working with Eden Reforestation Projects, and TEAM to help start reforestation projects in Brazil. We work with the poor, helping give them jobs to reforest their lands, which will provide for their needs materially (food, lumber) but also environmentally as it will bring back the water to their communities (flowing streams, full wells), diversity to the ecosystem, wildlife that has disappeared for many years, as well as joy and dignity to their lives as they reduce and remove their dependency on others for their needs.
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.
If you would like to give or learn more about Scott’s work with Cowboys of the Cross you can contact him or visit his website at http://www.cowboysofthecross.com/

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.
