In 2017, RiverTree Jackson, launched a new GOD DREAM to bring new life to their community with a goal to have a missionary on every street and a missional community in every neighborhood.
To achieve this goal, RiverTree Jackson began a campaign called BLESS.EAT.PRAY.50K to help the congregation experience themselves as a missionary right in their own neighborhood, network or workplace.
Over a year, they would resource 1,000 people to bless, eat or pray intentionally with those God has placed around them resulting in 50,000 INTENTIONAL ACTS of being on mission in the community.
