Where We Go at Red Village
“And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.’” – Matthew 28:12-20
This passage is commonly known as the Great Commission, and it applies to every Christian and, therefore, every local church. At Red Village Church, we take this commission seriously as we seek to go and spread the good news of the Gospel and make passionate disciples of Jesus Christ both locally and globally.
One way that Red Village goes locally is through service in the church. Serving in the church is certainly going in the sense that every volunteer on a Sunday morning is contributing to the spread of the Gospel. Whether it is working with children, playing music, or serving coffee, every volunteer is aiding RVC to spread the message of the wooden cross and the empty tomb.

RVC also goes locally through our Villages. Villages are RVC’s small-group ministry and a key part of small groups is to serve together. If you would like to know more about Villages, please visit our Connect page.
Red Village also goes by humbly serving the community! Madison West High School, where RVC meets, and Eagle Heights are a couple of the places where we focus our community service efforts. For example, in the past RVC has served these places by providing gardening services, assisting in community events, hosting a basketball camp, and donating school supplies.
The most powerful way we believe to go and spread the Gospel locally, though, is through the planting of more churches. RVC is a church-planting church, with currently one plant already on the northeast side of Madison, and a desire for more. RVC utilizes a strong training pipeline through the North American Mission Board (NAMB) to train up future church planters. We always welcome those interested in church planting to talk to us about this process and what it would look like to plant a church, whether it is through RVC or another church altogether.
Red Village Church has had the honor and privilege of sending several missionaries around the world to spread the message of the wooden cross and the empty tomb. Currently, RVC has missionaries in the Middle East, India, Central Asia, North Africa and South America. They are ministering to unreached neighbors, working with students, and caring for and teaching orphans about Jesus, just to name a few of the amazing things these men and women do daily. RVC also has ministry partnerships with a missionary couple in India and a family caring for orphans in Central America.
Red Village has strong ties through its denomination to the International Mission Board (IMB), an excellent global missions organization. If have considered being an international missionary, we would love to talk to you. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to learn about the IMB and what the process of becoming a missionary looks like.
