going out in mission!

local, regional and global

Jesus said, in Matthew 22: 37-40: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first and Great Commandment, and the second is like it: you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”


At Christ the Redeemer we have partnered with over 12 agencies from our community and beyond to serve and bless others with the love of Jesus Christ. In addition, we commit 10% of our pledged income to mission.  If you are interested in learning more either contact the church here or Sandy Tisdale, our Mission leader here.

Local Mission opportunities

Rivertree Academy

Rivertree Academy, a private Christian school that provides education for under resourced students in the Lake Como neighborhood, is one of our CTR Local Mission Partners. We share the love of Christ with the students and faculty of Rivertree through our prayers, joint worship opportunities, volunteer service at the school, and by providing financial and in-kind support. The 2020-21 school year is drawing to a close. CTR will continue to provide school-day snacks for Rivertree’s campuses for the remainder of the year and will be supplying the drinks and snacks for their Field Day on June 1st. Unfortunately, we will not be permitted to volunteer at the event this time, but we are looking forward to all things returning to normal in the next school year.  One-to-one mentoring will resume in the Fall. Please pray about this opportunity over the summer to see if this is something the Lord is calling you to do. The need is especially great for more men to serve in this capacity. The commitment of only an hour and a half per month provides a huge blessing to the child and the mentor! Stay tuned for more details on this and other opportunities to support the school.
