The Mustard Seed journey began with a simple truth: “We’re out of space!”
As we began to consider how we might solve our own space problem, we realized that Rio was part of a city-wide community of churches, and we began to seek our place in that community.
As we prayed and sought God’s wisdom, He led us to a plan to expand this campus to its maximum potential, to enhance our ability to reach the lost, minister to the least, and lead people into a growing relationship with Christ–not only at Rio but in our city and the world.
During the Mustard Seed Campaign, Carter Brown, our Pastor of Spiritual Formation and International Missions, departed to plant a church in Miami, Florida. This video was played in church on his last Sunday with us. Carter wanted to deliver a heartfelt message to Rio about how this church has been used to bring him into full time ministry work.
