Cologne, Germany (Great Commission Europe)
Team Lead: Blair Hayes/Brandon Harper
Great Commission Europe (GCE) is about planting churches, making disciples, and reaching the nations through Europe. We begun our partnership with GCE in 2019 after some of our leadership team had the opportunity to travel the refugee highway beginning in Greece and ending in Amsterdam. We will be partnering with Mateo and his team in Cologne, Germany to reach unreached people groups.
The trip focus will be centered around creating gospel conversations and setting up follow up meetings with the people you meet. This will be accomplished through offering coffee, playing games in the local park, or simply walking throughout the city. The work done by the team will then enable Mateo and his team to follow up those conversations with intentional times of discipleship and the eventual goal of planting a church. This trip offers a unique opportunity to interact with people who possibly come from nations that are hostile to the Christians and have never heard the Gospel.

Morgantown, WV (Chestnut Mountain Ranch)
Cost: $160 (2 Night Stay) + $50 (Per person)
Chestnut Mountain Ranch provides a Christ-centered school and home for boys in crisis and in need of hope and healing. Partnering with their families, they pursue family restoration and reunification. Just recently, two faithful River Ridge attendees, Greg and Jennifer Clutter, moved to Morgantown to head up the Foster Care Initiative at Chestnut Mountain Ranch.
The focus of this trip will be light construction projects designed for the whole family. Our hope is to create a serving opportunity that is accessible for families in location, duration, cost, and skill level. The work we do will help the ranch to expand and enhance the programs they offer to the boys and families.
