These are the missions we support:
The mission of The Bible Tabernacle is to glorify Christ by preaching The Gospel to the poor and helping those in need, teaching them how to help themselves through God’s Word. Senior Pastor Peter Hilst directs the mission with Associate Pastor Richard Libby. Director Michael Hughes managing the family and women’s programs, and Wesley Russell directs the men’s programs at the Canyon Country location.
Campus Crusade for Christ
Prayer is at the heart of Campus Crusade for Christ (CRU). Dr. Bill Bright founded this ministry on prayer and it is through prayer that Campus Crusade has been blessed to make such a significant contribution to fulfilling the Great Commission. Rim Church supports Milt and Carolyn Monell, who lead the Global Prayer Movement at Campus Crusade for Christ Headquarters in Orlando, FL.. They are involved in several other mission programs as well.
What is compassion? Compassion means “to suffer with” and is an emotional response of sympathy. But it’s not
just a feeling. The feeling is combined with a desire to help. Families in Rim Church sponsor Compassion childen, and the church encourages families to sponsor needy childen through the Compassion program.

Youth With a Mission
Brian and Anna Kleinsasser
We first supported Brian and Anna when they were young missionaries in Hong Kong. We followed them to Australia, and then to New Zealand before they were moved to YWAM HQ in Kansas City, MO. Where Brian helped manage the Impact World Tour project for YWAM. Now, with the family grown, they have been eager to get back to grass-roots missionary work—bringing the Gospel message to people on a personal level. They moved to a YWAM mission site in Costa Rica. Now Costa Rica is locked down for the foreseeable future, so Brian and Anna are now moving on to YWAM Long Beach, California.
