Our mission. Our leaders. Our Church.
Our Mission: Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. -Matthew 28:19-20
The Mission sits in the heart of Downtown Redlands and provides a distinctive opportunity to show the love of Jesus Christ to the unique culture in our midst. We invite you to connect with our church family through our worship experience which involves musical worship with an eclectic mix of instruments, vibrant Biblical teaching of practical life lessons, and opportunities to build relationships with our neighbors. Our passion is to see all people in our community connect to Christ and to each other as God’s family.
Through each season of life, we believe growing in faith is the key to the fulfilled life Jesus is calling us to share with Him. The Church is God’s body of believers in our world today. God calls His Church to connect to Jesus and grow in obedience to His command to love God and love others. We offer multiple venues to foster spiritual growth for people of all ages and stages of faith. We are on a Mission to build a deeper and stronger community of Christ followers.
The Mission is not only a place of refuge but also an invitation to action. As Christ followers we empower each other to bring the light of Jesus’ love to our neighborhoods, our country and our world. Whether responding to The Mission within the walls of the church, within our local community, or reaching the ends of the earth, we desire to be the hands and feet of Jesus to share God’s hope with a hurting world.
We want to see you grow in Faith
We want to see you serve Jesus
Every Member has a Mission
I was born and raised in Southern California and have had the privilege to be married to the greatest woman in the world for 15 years now. Kim and I have been in ministry together for almost 20 years and have witnessed God move through His people in big ways that leave us stunned and in Awe of our loving God. I was a Youth Pastor for 10 years working with some of the greatest people and kids ever until the Lord moved us into the Greatest city in the world, Redlands. We are very excited to see what God is going to do here in Redlands and know that we are honored and humbled to be a part of this great church. We have 4 amazing kids, 3 girls and a boy. We love to camp, snowboard/ski, playing games and just hanging together in general.
I was born and raised in Southern California and Chris and I have been married almost 15 years. We have four kids: Emily who is thirteen, 12 year old twins Krista and madi and a ten year old son, Ethan. We love camping, the beach, hiking and just hanging out together. We have three dogs, two cats and a bunch of chickens so our house is always very "lively."
Chris and I have been doing ministry together since before we were married and we have loved seeing the amazing things God has done in people's lives. We feel humbled to walk alongside our brothers and sisters in Christ as we all continue to grow and learn together.
Hey everyone, my name is Jason Day and I am the Creative Arts Pastor here at The Mission. I was born in Kentucky, raised in Ohio and lived in New York for 6 years. My wife Kim and I have two amazing sons named Dylan (born Oct. 2006) and Owen (born July 2009). We moved to Redlands in Sept of 2012. We are so excited to be a part of the The Mission church family and the Redlands community. We enjoy spending time with friends, watching movies, going to the beach and talking to telemarketers...nope.
We have been in the worship ministry for over 10 years now and God keeps calling, so we keep answering. Nothing excites me more than being in a group of people who are fired up about worshiping God. Here at The Mission we are people who are committed to going after the lost and meeting people right where they are with the love of Jesus. So come and join the movement that is going on here. God is on the move, are you?
Hello! I’m Sue Johnson, aka Mama Sue. I have lived in Riverside all my life. My husband Randy and I have been with Marie Callender’s for over 40 years. We have three daughters and four grandkids, about whom I never speak…unless I am awake. Or in REM sleep.
I have served God for most of my adult life through music and working with youth. In addition, I have been active in Bible Study Fellowship, Girl Scouting, and generally being the local Kool Aid mom. My job at The Mission is to support the ministry staff and volunteers in any way I can. Need anything? Give me a call. We’ll see what we can do.
Hi, I’m Neil. I'm the Connect Director here at The Mission. I live in Riverside with my amazing wife Monica, and our little girl Andelyn (Born 4/11/2012). I have my hands in a lot of cookie jars. I am a Licensed Respiratory Therapist, and a full Daddy Daycare. I am a 90’s kid at heart; just give me some Rock n’ Roll!! Seriously put me in a small dark concert venue and I am right at home.
God has given me lots of passions, and I seem to find ministry in all of them. I have such a heart for the people of Redlands, and all of Southern California. If you talk to me for 10 minutes you will know I love People, Fishing and Snowboarding. I am a member of the FIB’ers Christian Fishing Club, and the Director of the Big Bear Chapter of Snowboarders and Skiers for Christ. I’m a firm believer in using the talents God has given you to build relationships, and further his kingdom. I say BOOM a lot.
Hello! I was born and raised in a Christian home in Riverside. If the doors to our church were open, my family was likely there. I love bring part of the Mission and being the Awana director! It combines the love for the Body of Christ that was fostered in my youth with the deeper desire to connect with kids and their families for God’s purposes that has grown in my adult years. Plus, we just plain have fun at Awanas!
I’ve been married to my terrific husband Bob since 1984 and we have four sons: Ryan (‘91), Matthew (‘96), Andrew (‘99), and Nathan (‘03). We also have two large dogs, a cockatiel, and more reptiles than I care to count. Besides the blessing of being a wife and mom, I have my own reupholstery business. I enjoy walking, running, hiking, camping, gardening, reading, jigsaw puzzles, and a good thrift store on a 50% off day. I’d rather be outside than inside.
You may notice that our main parking lot has limited space. We have additional parking at Beaver Medical Group which is located across the street at the corner of Fern and Cajon.
Our children are a big priority at The Mission. We want your children to have a safe and meaningful experience with us. Kidz on a Mission is down the hallway to your right as you walk into our lobby. If it is your first time, you may want to arrive early to complete our registration forms to ensure your child’s safety. You can register your child at the Mission Trolley and we will see that they are placed in the age appropriate classroom. Directly after the service you can pick your child up from their classroom. All of our volunteers and staff have had a thorough background check so you can feel like your kids are in good hands. We look forward to helping them grow in their understanding of God and enjoy time with new friends.
At The Mission we value the roots of our musical worship and strive to provide an experience in which we seek the presence of God through a passionate modern worship style. While using an electric mix of instrumentation, we span a variety of musical genres from modern worship to acoustic folk to re-imagined hymns. Other vital elements in our corporate worship time include prayer and offering. If it's your first time at The Mission, we would love for you to fill out the information card in the bulletin and place it in the offering plate so we can get to know you.
The Mission is committed to preaching knowledge of the Bible and practical applications of the message of Jesus Christ to love our neighbors.
The first Sunday of every month we take Communion. This tradition is a time of remembrance for Christ followers. If you are not a follower of Jesus you can feel free to just observe.
At The Mission we value relationships. We would love to meet you and spend time with you outside the walls of our church building. Come by and say hello!

Mission Membership is an opportunity for our church family to become your church family. Our membership class will introduce you to our church and our Mission to Connect with the community, Grow in faith, and Serve Jesus. We believe that all people are called by God to be connected to Him and each other. We also desire to grow in faith by walking together through the journey of life. Lastly, we want to serve the world around us by reaching out to: the least, the last, and the lost.
In the book of Leviticus, God reveals the way for all people to draw near to Him. Through Jesus, we see “THE WAY” to truly come close to our Heavenly Father as we bring everything we have to him. In this new sermon series, we will begin to see how we are meant to bring everything we have to Lord; "Holding Nothing Back".
Do you truly believe--in a life-altering, awe-inspiring, dream-changing way--that the God of the universe loves you? Living Crazy Love will help you embrace God's intense, relentless love and watch that love transform every aspect of your being. Join us for this ten-week study every Monday night @ 6:30 as we grapple with the hard questions about the love of God and how that love should change the way we live.
At The Mission, we don't just go to church together ... we do life together.
That's what Grow Groups are all about. These gatherings are small groups of
people that meet throughout the city to eat, pray, laugh,
serve the community and study God's word together.
Here at The Mission, you will feel valued and accepted wherever you are on your walk with God. Come and join us as we laugh, cry and enjoy life's adventures together-deepening our faith along the way.
