RISK TAKING MISSION AND SERVICE (RTMS)
Gobin’s Mission and Service Leadership Team coordinates the practice of RTMS, by supporting the work of people to make a positive difference in the lives of others for the purposes of Christ, whether or not they are part of our community of faith. We can help you find ways to share your unique gifts in a variety of mission ministries that provide hope and support through personal connections and the demonstration of love, mercy and respect, all within our local community and the world beyond.
Transformers A coalition of congregations and community groups which help children, youth and adults to transform their lives from poverty to self-sufficiency.
Community Small Grants Gobin’s small grants program awards up to $1000 quarterly to support local mission and service projects that provide hope and support to individuals struggling with personal, spiritual, emotional and economic issues.
Collaborative Outreach Each year Gobin selects two to three local community projects and one international project that fit the RTMS model and supports them through fund-raising and volunteer work while raising awareness of their services. Two current missions we are serving include the Summer Enrichment Program and Mission Guatemala.
