REACH 2018-2019

Every year RMM’s short term department runs a year-long missions program called REACH. The program includes three months of discipleship training in Columbus, Ohio, followed by six months of outreach. REACH is a place where young people engage with their faith and receive tools and opportunities to share the love of Christ with others.

This year, the group is split up into seven teams serving in different locations: Ecuador, Indochina, Israel, the Mediterranean, Thailand, U.S.A, and Zambia. If you would like to read weekly accounts of what the teams are up to, follow their blogs below.
