Local and Global Missions at Zion pairs individuals seeking to be a part of God’s bigger picture with organizations and ministries thriving in their specific roles within God’s Kingdom.  God calls us to care for and reach the lost, so whether that’s the person you’re sitting next to - or the friend waiting to meet you across the globe, Zion missions will equip you for God’s calling on your journey.

 Jesus sums up the entire the Law and the Prophets with the commands to: love God and love others. It is out of our love of God, our adoration, respect, and relationship with Him, that we can then love others as He does. Our love for God is what motivates us and fuels us to love others.

In Luke 10:25-37, Jesus defines who our neighbors are: anyone and everyone! We believe that God has placed us in specific places to cross paths with specific people: people in our workplaces, schools, and communities, including our actual, physical neighbors.


It is our hope and prayer that our love and service for other people would create opportunities for relationship-building and conversations, specifically about Jesus and His Gospel message. We live and move and act with these hopes in mind knowing that God wants to build His Kingdom right here in North Iowa, and that Jesus, Himself, Loves This City!

As a licensed registered nurse, Riley is called to the hurt, sick, broken and bleeding and to provide a pathway of healing both physically and spiritually.  The nursing ministry is new and Riley has been excited to see where the Lord is taking it. Most recently a nursing office/“clinic” has been opened. In a city with a broken medical system, this new ministry will serve as a doorway for people to experience the love and compassion of Jesus.
Riley is currently stateside for a year to research next steps of running this medical ministry. She will be involved in training/equipping programs, fundraising, and making contacts to go back and begin a full time ministry.
