RiverStone supports over 20 long-term missionaries in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, South America, and North America. Many of the locations in the 10/40 window cannot be shared to ensure the security of our partners. Additionally, RiverStone partners with several local ministries within the community.
The work of our partner missionaries includes equipping over 800 leaders in Peru, running a business as a mission in Asia with over 20 ladies, a children’s home with almost 50 children in Asia, working with individuals trapped in slavery and addiction in Africa, providing housing and a safe place to learn in the Philippines, raising up a generation dedicated to prayer for the nations, evangelism in the Middle East, inner city work in Australia, and much, much more.
Below is a sampling of RiverStone’s missionary partners:
Dave and Ellen Bartlett
Ghana, West Africa is a diverse country full of energy and some of the most incredible people you will ever meet! While Christianity makes up a substantial percentage of the country – it is often mixed with tribal beliefs and superstition. Dave and Ellen Bartlett are our missionaries to Ghana. They spend their days building relationships and reaching out to the local community through Bible studies in their home, facilitating classes in Celebrate Recovery, as well as one on one discipleship.

(Lance + Heather + Josiah + Hayley + Channing + Eireann)
In September of 2000, we moved to the West coast of Scotland to work as missionaries with Youth With A Mission (YWAM). Since that time we have been involved in a many different types of ministry including staffing and leading YWAM’s Discipleship Training Schools (DTS), Preaching, Teaching, Strategic Intercession, and practical service in our local community. In 2005, we pioneered a YWAM ministry called Highlands Outreach Teams, where we take short term outreach teams up into the remote areas of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. This ministry has been very fruitful and has continually expanded over the past few years. As well as continuing to lead Highlands Outreach Teams, we are also currently involved in several other ministries including Healing Rooms, Light & Life, SOZO, and a marriage course called Love After Marriage. We also lead a Home Group, and Lance runs an after school basketball club at the village primary school. We believe that God is preparing Scotland for another great Revival, and we feel extremely honoured to be called to work in this nation in these days.
The Eddy Family
The Eddy family has served for over 20 years as missionaries in Spain. Their focus is mainly in Madrid, where they aim to develop and disciple attendees in churches that they help to establish. They provide after-school programs for children through a non-profit that they founded called Mosaic of Hope. Much of their ministry focus is on the children of Latin American missionary children. The Eddy family also provide missionary care opportunities for Spanish pastors and missionaries through Operation Barnabas, which provides teaching and encouragement for those serving in Spain.
Tom & Leigh Ann Fraley
Tom and Leigh Ann moved from Omaha, Nebraska, USA, in 2008 in response to a call of God to minister in Edinburgh, Scotland. Passionate about global outreach, the Fraleys have traveled in Europe, North and South America, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia to see the church encouraged and strengthened. They preach and teach in the local church and empower their teams to carry out ministry.
Jacob and Tatum Green
Jacob & Tatum serve at Youth With A Mission (YWAM) in Redding, CA. Tatum oversees the operations of the base, does pastoral ministry for the staff, and is working on building sustainable systems for the growing ministry. Jacob oversees the training schools and staff development for the young staff leaders.
Erin’s missions journey has brought her from Guatemala, to Bethany College of Missions, to Cambodia, and now to the Philippines. Erin joined Action International Ministries in 2009 to join their team in reaching out to children-in-crisis. After arriving in the Philippines, the Lord led Erin and a small Filipino team to start an outreach to street children called “Brand New Day.”
Brand New Day is an outreach and rehabilitation program for street children in Cavite, Philippines. These children and youth are living, sleeping, and working on the streets due to extreme poverty, neglect, and/or abusive family situations. Brand New Day provides educational opportunities, spiritual development, a day center, and children’s home. For more information, visit Erin’s page here!
Jeff and Kristian Price
The Prices serve as intercessory missionaries at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City. Jeff leads the Partner Care team providing pastoral care to the thousands of individuals around the globe that partner with IHOPKC. Kristian focuses on helping to bring inner healing and freedom to individual’s lives through ministry sessions. Together Jeff and Kristian minister to the missionary couples serving at the missions base as well as in the community through classes and marriage counseling.
Tammy moved to Asia in 1998, after graduating from Asbury Theological Seminary. She is the founder and director of K-Project.
K-Project ministers through three main avenues:
1) K CHILDREN’S HOME: K-Homes was founded in 1999 in a large city in Asia. The team of three started by taking in two children whose mother had died, and father was sick with AIDS. Word spread fast, and within six months, they had virtually adopted twenty children, ages 2-10!! Their hands were full, but so were their hearts!
Over the years K-Homes has taken in other children from extreme circumstances. The national staff of 12, 46 kids, and international volunteers make up the K-Home Family. K stands for the word ‘Grace’ in the language where Tammy and team are ministering, a country that is not very open to Christianity. These children come from a wide variety of backgrounds. From street children to orphans to children whom have been abandoned, to children from AIDS-affected families, all find grace at K-Homes. The ministry exists to give children whom literally have no where else to go, a loving family and hope!! K-Homes is a place where children without hope can find it. Not only will they find hope, but they will also find unconditional love, joy, peace, safety and many other blessings sometimes taken for granted.
The ultimate and absolute purpose of K- homes is to provide these children with loving care in the context of family, while consistently pointing them to the cross of Christ. Their vision is to raise up children radically committed to Jesus Christ, who, empowered by His Holy Spirit, will spread the good news and transform this region of the world! We are so excited that many of our older ones are doing just that in creative ways across this subcontinent!
2) FAMILY SUPPORT PROGRAM: K- Family Support Program (FSP) supports over 130 children from single parent families in surrounding areas. These families come from destitute desperate backgrounds. Most of the children in this program are fatherless and live at home with their widowed mother. K-Project supports these precious families through education, medical help, parent training workshops, relationship, and more. K-Project believes in true empowerment and has equipped 8 of the single moms in the FSP program to now lead in their communities, as jr. social workers with K-Project. These single moms are incredibly effective in transforming their own communities as we come alongside and try to encourage, they are the ones whom are able to speak life into their fellow single moms. Many have come to Christ through this initiative. They’ve witnessed many of these children graduate from college! Something that no one in their extended family has ever dreamed of achieving! K-project is working hard to train other ministries and NGO’s in this region to move away from orphanage or children’s homes and towards keeping families together. They’ve created a 3 day workshop/training module that currently is being used to replicate this movement throughout the country! The heart of FSP is caring for the orphans and widows in their distress…by working hard to keep them together!
3) SONS & DAUGHTERS: The third area of ministry for Tammy and team is this newest endeavor. Tammy is the founder and director of Sons and Daughters sending agency. Sons and Daughters exists as a vehicle to partner with and send young people from the K-Homes/FSP community who feel called into full time ministry in this region of the world (10/40 window). Indigenous transformative mission is at the heart of S&D. Sons and Daughters trains, empowers, encourages and fully supports these ‘called ones’ so that they can fully engage with the work of reaching the lost in this region. Sons and Daughters currently supports 17 young people from our community ministering in difficult places in the 10/40 window!
