PARTNER WITH RSA
You play a vital role in the ministry of Reid Saunders Association (RSA) when you partner with us.
Jesus said in John 4:35, “I tell you, open your eyes and look to the fields! They are ripe for harvest!” Yes, the fields are ripe for harvest, but notice what Jesus said regarding this harvest in Luke 10:2. “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.”
We need your help in the harvest fields and here at home. Here are three ways you can get involved.
Each year we take several teams on outreach trips, also know as short-term mission trips to various countries around the world. We invite you to contact us to place your name on our Trip Updates Email List and pray about going with us on one of these upcoming trips. Visit our web site for the trip updates take-a-trip, fill out forms at mission forms, and contact us as early as possible for the latest information.
There are opportunities on almost every trip to join the prayer, medical, or outreach team. Some of the many effective ways to serve and use your talents include drama, sharing your personal testimony, counseling new believers, musical presentation, photography, video production, media communications, action sports, teaching, and language translation. Most trip participants raise financial and prayer partner support. Food, housing, planning, transportation, tools, and equipment are provided. Experienced staff and leaders are there to help you communicate the Gospel in cross-cultural settings.
As the Lord leads, there are many ways you can partner with RSA and reach people for Jesus. We are blessed by people that live in the Salem area and volunteer their time for mailings, office work, writing, fund raising event hosting, decoration, transportation, moving equipment and supplies, or internship in our home office. You can also donate crafts, visual aids, children’s supplies, clothing, fabric or sewing materials. A wonderful team of women lovingly sew thousands of children’s dresses and shorts each year that are distributed to needy children around the world. Other groups are sewing aprons for moms; an effective way to encourage women to pray for their families, and build spiritual relationships with overworked homemakers. RSA medical teams are always in need of medicines and over-the-counter supplies. Some prefer to be on the Prayer Team or the more intense Prayer Cell Ministry that covers specific trips or ministry. Gifts-in-kind, rentals, and corporate sponsorships underwrite the production cost of large events. Monthly or yearly financial support is vital to the daily operations of RSA and the ongoing ministry of evangelism.
In addition to going on a trip or providing financial support to the ministry, we encourage everyone to be involved in the evangelism effort. We offer books, tools and practical Friendship Evangelism training to equip and prepare believers to go out into the harvest fields and share Jesus with others. Jesus wants all of His followers to be actively involved and doing their part in the Great Commission, found in Matthew 28:18-20. Please contact us about scheduling a Friendship Evangelism training session in your church. We would also love to have you pray with us and for us! There are three ways to join us in prayer: join a corporate team to pray for a specific trip for a short period of time (Prayer Team), receive prayer requests by email (Share-A-Prayer), and/or add us to your regular prayer schedule. Of course, you can do all three!
