Missions has always been a focus of Radiant Church. It is our driving desire to reach out to spiritually lost people in every nation of the earth, because we believe the Great Commission is a global responsibility that Jesus gave to each of us. A portion of our tithes and offerings go directly to support missionaries and mission organizations across the world as well as right here in Kalamazoo. In addition to supporting missionaries financially, every year we send short-term missions teams of adults and youth around the world to work and to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. We are a family church with a world vision!
