"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

Risk Takers for Christ's mission is to motivate and mobilize Christians to leave their spiritual comfort zones and maximize their God-given ministry potential. We encourage and equip believers through our daily Dare 2B Daring devotional messages and our monthly ministry newsletter, Take a Risk! To subscribe for FREE to either or both publications, visit our Contact Page or email info@risktakersforchrist.org.

Our ministry's motto is "moving believers from the sidelines to the front lines". For that reason, we provide the following Front Line Ministry Opportunities for you to exercise and grow your faith.

  • Living H2O Initiative, a sports outreach to at-risk youth
  • Florida Prison Project, monthly ministry trips to various correctional institutions throughout Florida
  • Kenya Prison Project, an annual ministry trip to correctional institutions in Western Kenya

"You cannot stay the way you are and go with God." - Henry Blackaby, Experiencing God
