Thank You

Thank you from the River City Christian Ministries. Our families and friends have supported, prayed, and loved us as we embarked on God’s mission. This mission team started out in May 2011 with only faith and the hearts to win the city of Jacksonville for the Lord. We continue to be encouraged by the emails, phone calls, visits and support from all over the world. We thank you all with the love of the Lord and we are humbled and very grateful that the grace of our savior unifies us all.

Please keep us in your prayers that we will continue to reach souls for Jesus here in Jacksonville and all over the world.
