“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19).

Our Timothy’s

Timothy comes from the Greek name Τιμόθεος (Timόtheos) meaning “honouring God”, “in God’s honour”, or “honoured by God”.

At Riverton Christian Church we have taken to heart the command to send our best into the mission field to share the good news of Jesus Christ (Acts 13: 2-3).  We have set apart our very own sons and support them in locations across the globe (Acts 1:8)

The Bjerks work with Croatian church leaders to help them more effectively reach their communities with the gospel. Their ministry involves discipleship, youth ministry (camps & VBS), advising church leaders in missions and outreach, home Bible studies, music, and personal evangelism.
Their current request is that we pray for spiritual fruit (salvation, growth in Christ) from the above-listed ministries, for the expansion of the camp ministry and opportunities to use the property as a training center for the Croatian church, for continued strong ministry partnerships, and for even more evangelism opportunities.

While pastoring this church he met Ingrid the woman who would be his wife, and married her March 1 2014. Once the church was strong again and had a Filipino minister to lead it, Brett and his wife Ingrid moved into church planting and started the Ambuklao Christian Church Planting Movement where he services as the leader.
