Reaching People Across the World

At James River Church, our #1 core value is to reach the lost. Planting new churches and investing in missions is an amazing way to reach people and help them meet Jesus! In 2024, we are partnering with the Church Multiplication Network and Association of Related Churches to plant 20 new churches across the United States. We will also support church plants and projects in key areas of the world where there is a desperate need for the Good News of Jesus. We can’t wait to hear all the amazing stories of God’s faithfulness through these church plants this year!

Upcoming Missions Trips

Cost $1,900

James River Church will be partnering with the James Project in Guatemala. The James Project is an organization designed to serve and minister to neglected children and widows inspired from James 1:27. We will be working alongside the Shadow of His Wing’s Children’s Home, a program stemming from the James Project, to serve children through various activities, games, Bible lessons, and so much more.


August 8-16, 2024
Cost $2500

James River Church is partnering with AGWM Missionaries and lead pastors of Centro Cristiano de Guayaquil, Henry and Ivonne Smith. This is an annual trip at James River due to how dynamic the opportunities are to serve the church and their ministries! This often includes construction, leading chapel, serving kids during service times, serving men’s and women’s ministries, and more! We have the opportunity to lift the hands of the missionaries in Ecuador!

Saint Kitts

August 17-24, 2024
Cost $2,200

We will be partnering with AGWM Missionaries Dale and Patti Coad on the island of St. Kitts. Pastors Dale and Patti are lead pastors of New Beginnings Church, a Spanish diaspora church, in which most of the congregants are from the Dominican Republic and Cuba. They have outgrown their sanctuary space, so our team will be helping to expand the site! We can expect to be helping on projects like window and door installation, some electrical work, building stairs, texturing the inside and outside of the building, and more! We might even get to do a little demolition work as well!


September 18-28, 2024
Cost $2,800

James River Church is partnering with AGWM missionaries Kennon and Amanda Briggs. This trip will be a young adults trip due to the fact that we will be involved in the universities. We will be attending college universities and connecting with students. We will also participate in serve projects.

Ethiopia Medical

November 7-17, 2024
Cost: $3900 estimate. Cost is subject to change

James River Church will be partnering with One Child Matters in Addis Ababa. One Child Matters currently operates several development centers in Ethiopia, which serve around 3,200 children each week. We will be visiting a few of the centers in Addis Ababa and the surrounding area. You will be primarily working with children on this trip, by helping in medical clinics or just playing with them as they wait in line. This is a great opportunity to see the child you support and visit the centers.
