20/20 Vision – Expanding Our Missions Reach

Every 20 days, Walnut Ridge is sending someone into the world telling others about Jesus! In addition to 18 worldwide missions trips in 2018, we regularly partner with or lead 62 ongoing missions projects here in Mansfield and elsewhere in America.

How can we expand our missions reach in Mansfield and in the world?

The 20/20 Vision challenges each member of our church to give $20 or more a week (above their tithe) to support the completion of a “sending center” by the end of 2020. You may also make a one time donation. This new addition to our current campus provides space for collecting and sorting donated items every Sunday, as well as room for our church to grow and reach more people in Mansfield for Jesus.

Watch as Pastor Randy shares the 20/20 Vision…

The expanded entrance from the parking lot will flow into a larger lobby with a new welcome desk.

The addition connects our current lobby to the indoor children’s playground, which will be completed by November, 2017.

A large staircase will lead to the adult classrooms, easing congestion. A beautiful open area provides space for Bible studies, weddings, and special events–much like a fellowship hall.

Several kiosks with adjacent storage will allow weekly collection of food, coats, or other items to support our missions efforts.
