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!
Since its humble beginnings in 1933 by founders Jake and Anna Hildebrand, the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission has been offering support to those less fortunate in the Kalamazoo area by providing meals, clothing, emergency shelter and most importantly, showing the love of Christ.
The mission of the Kalamazoo Deacons Conference is to share the love and hope of Jesus Christ by meeting the physical and spiritual needs of people in crisis in the Southwest Michigan community. This organization shares Christ’s love through donations of clothing, furniture, household items, personal care items and emergency financial assistance.

ActiveWater is a nonprofit organization that informs individuals and groups of one of the greatest challenge our world faces, the need for safe drinking water. They strive to cultivate a greater understanding of how the lack of accessible clean water threatens the welfare of individuals, leading not only to the demise of their health, but also exhausting their time, energy, and financial potential. ActiveWater fulfills their mission by creating a vocal platform built from athletic endeavors that attract overwhelming interest and media exposure. They then convert that attention into inspiring and equipping others to give of their resources, commitment and voice to bring clean water projects to people in need across the world.
