RMPC serves as the feet of Christ through a supporting and sending missions ministry. We regularly send short-term teams to visit and work with the missionaries we support. These are the missionaries and institutions we support:

Our own member, Gale Brown, serves on the team that ministers at Henry Elementary School through Child Evangelism Fellowship. They meet every Wednesday after school to share the gospel with children.

Josh & Alli McArthur - 6:8 Ministries in Costa Rica
Josh and Alli McArthur have three energetic little boys, Caleb, Micah and Judah. They are passionate about teaching, and modeling the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the people of Costa Rica. Their call is to reach the young so that they can be instruments of change in their own culture. They moved to Costa Rica in July 2014, and spent a year in Alajuelita where they are getting adjusted to the culture, and building their language skills. They are now living at the Living Waters Children's Ranch. Josh is the Director of Living Waters Children's Ranch. He manages and leads missionary team, ranch staff, ranch development and community ministries.

Luciano & Luciene Pires - Porto, Portugal
Luciano and Luciene Pires are the founders of a home-based Christian Institute focused on Apologetics and Evangelism, called Colloquium and have been PMI Missionaries since 2001. Their mission at Colloquium is to plant churches by presenting the truths of the Gospel in a way that will challenge the hearts and minds of this generation, especially university students. They are also actively engaged in Christian leadership training. Thus, their passion is to reach out to non-believers and to equip Christians to live all of life under the Lordship of Christ. You can sign up for their monthly emails by emailing Luciano at email@example.com.
John & Cathy Rug (MTW) - Viña del Mar, Chile
The Rugs have been involved in church-planting in Chile since 1986. Currently they are working with the Viña del Mar church planting effort. They minister the gospel to some of Chile’s “disposable” peoples, including the blind and deaf. In order to facilitate a church-planting movement that includes this largely overlooked group of disabled people, the Rugs minister to them, their relatives, and friends through a special project called CEMIPRE. This is a resource center for the uniquely-abled, in cooperation with the church-planting effort, helping the body of believers cross special needs barriers with the gospel of Christ. They have 4 children: Ana, Elena, Benjamin, and Juanita.
