Our Mission: Discipleship by building purposeful relationships inside and outside the church so that we can speak the gospel (the love of God) into each other’s lives. We accomplish our mission by living on mission both locally and globally.


The Local helps Redeemer build relationships in the community through neighboring, and by developing relationships with specific non-profits (both faith based and secular) in which people from Redeemer can serve in our community. 

Our Local Partners

Chemo Crew

Founded by Ovarian Cancer survivor Bridgette Eilers in 2011, Chemo Crew works to provide hope and help to cancer patients and their families by working closely with hospitals and other medical providers who specialize in cancer treatment.

Cancer patients and their families experience a great deal of uncertainty during treatment. As Bridgette journeyed through treatment, she realized the importance of support. Chemo Crew’s goal is to bridge the gap between patients and available resources as well as to provide practical tips that will offer comfort during treatment.

HACER Logo- Dark.png

HACER supports sacred places to become central spaces for innovation and incubation for entrepreneurialism within the local community. 87% of residents in low-income communities desire to “be their own boss.” 10 hours-a-week is the average amount of time churches utilize their space. Workspace access & entrepreneurial support is a means of economic development and mobility. We partner with HACER to use the Redeemer Modesto building as a space for the community to use during the week.

Global Partners

Global Partners are involved in holistic mission that engages in church planting. Global Partners consider Redeemer their primary sending church and desire a two‐way partnership where they receive regular prayer and financial support from Redeemer and in return provide regular updates by visiting Redeemer during furloughs and are open to the possibility of hosting short‐term teams/visitors from Redeemer to encourage and work alongside them in the field.

Dave & Kate along with their four children have been serving in Nicaragua for the past seven years.  They are in partnership with Missionary Ventures and focus on discipleship through operating a Vocational School and partnering with various indigenous ministries. Their mission is to build leaders and empower the local Church to show Nicaraguans how the Gospel affects every aspect of their lives.    

It gives us great joy to see young people capture a gospel understanding of God’s gift of vocation and learn how they can use their God-given gifts and talents to provide for their families, help their neighbors, and advance the kingdom of God.
— Dave and Katie
