MINISTRY RESIDENTS serve 1-2 years, diving deep into their chosen ministry area. They get a deep understanding of our urban, post-modern culture and are well-equipped for their next season of ministry.
INTERNS serve during a summer or semester (2-3 months), focusing on a specific area of ministry.
FUNDRAISING: You will build a team of prayer and financial supporters for your experience at River City. We provide free housing/utilities (a huge expense in Vancouver), and you will fundraise your remaining living expenses. This typically ends up being $300-$400 for airfare and $1,500/mo for expenses (food, transportation, personal items, etc). We can provide advice and training for building this support team, and you’ll often find your home church to be a great help in this area too!
“Working with River City Church was an eye opening experience as I explored what the Gospel looks like in a culture different from mine. It was a hands-on and equipping time in how to practically live out the gospel in my community, and how to love my neighbor as myself regardless of how different they may be from me.” -Kendra
“At River City Church I got to serve the community daily. The purpose of everything we did was to engage people with the Gospel. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a community so interested in what a church is doing, and so many people trying to get in and see what’s up. River City is doing something great.” -Danny
