Missions & Causes
Local Missional Projects and Partnership
We're always looking for ways to serve our community because Christ taught us that whatever we've done "to the least of these", we've done to Him (Matthew 25:40). We believe that as we generously give of our time, talents and treasure, we build relationships and bring supernatural transformation to the world around us.
With so many great organizations in our community doing such excellent jobs, we wondered, "why reinvent the wheel and go it alone?" So, we've created the "Userve Project".
This is an outreach ministry created to help you plug yourself into your community. We'll be providing you with a list of local organizations that are doing great work. We'll also periodically host group service projects. Stay tuned as this exciting new outreach ministry of Reality Community Church develops!
If you would like to help in this new ministry, contact our Outreach Coordinator, Anthony Noreiga. He will happily share with you the vision of this ministry and how you can partner in bring faith, hope and love to our community.
Local & Regional
At Reality Community Church, we believe that God has called us to "be fruitful and multiply". Therefore as we grow, we will plant churches and partner with others to advance His Kingdom in our city and beyond.

We are an active part of Converge Worldwide, a church planting movement and intentionally support Church Planting. Additionally, we seek to plant churches from our community.
We are strategically praying over five areas in the Greater Orlando area to plant churches with a goal to launch our first church plant in 2017.
Join us in praying for churches to be planted in the following areas:
Church Planting Training and Opportunities
We are affiliated with Converge Worldwide and Converge Church Planting. In our opinion, this is one of the best organizations in the nation for training and equipping church planters who are interested in planting missional churches.
If you have an interest in planting a church or financially investing in church planting, especially if you have a heart for the Orlando area or the State of Florida, contact us at Info@RealityCC.org
It is our desire to see the Kingdom of God expand and for new churches to be planted and to flourish.
Global Church Planting
The Plant International
We have partnernerd with The Plant International. Led by missionary church planter, Wayne Dery, they exist to plant and build churches in remote areas of the world where there is little or no gospel message.
Global Missions & Humanitarian Trips
We believe it is not only beneficial for us to see the world and serve it; we recognize it as a biblical imperative. We have partnered with Globalife Journeys to exercise this Call and empower others to do the same.

What Drives Us?
See global. Def: To take notice worldwide.
Seeing is believing. To fully understand the need, we must actually go and experience life from their perspective. They are not just another sad face on TV. They are real people with real stories and their life is just as valuable as ours.
Do global. Def: To engage, to take care of business worldwide.
Once you have seen, you understand the need for doing. It is only in our doing that lives are impacted. You also realize that we are all capable of helping. It doesn’t take a special skill set. It just requires our willingness to serve.
Be global. Def: To live with a worldwide perspective.
We are an interconnected global community. If we don’t do something to impact our world, then nothing will improve. “All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.” by Edmund Burke.
“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” -Mother Teresa.
Stop Human Trafficking
Globally & Locally
We Support Florida Abolitionist
Slavery(human trafficking) is alive and well in our world. In fact, there are more slaves today (~21 million) than at any point in human history. Slavery doesn’t discriminate. The general consensus is that this heinous crime exists in every nation on earth, and its victims are made-up of male and female, young and old, handi-capable, various ethnic backgrounds, and all economic levels.
Florida Abolitionist is unique in its vision of ending human trafficking of all forms within the United States. Many organizations are tirelessly fighting human trafficking on an international scale but there is so much work to be done right here in the U.S. Despite increased media attention and legislative efforts, human trafficking remains pervasive in the U.S. FA is dedicated to addressing the crime in ‘our own backyard’. You should join FA and take a stand in leading the anti-trafficking movement forward to end the modern practice of slavery. We need your support to help end the exploitation.
We support Brent and Jade Collins, Missionaries to Spain.
(From their website: LovEspana.com)
The primary focuses during the early phases of our ministry will be on reaching out to victims of human trafficking (mostly young women who have been enslaved in the commercial sex industry...ie. forced prostitution) and those trapped in patterns of domestic violence. These are two HUGE issues currently in Spain, and are one's that God has led us to be a part of solving. It's estimated that more than 60,000 young ladies are enslaved and sexually exploited in Spain alone right now! This begs the question...what can I DO? In the words of Dr. David Livingstone, "Sympathy is no substitute for action".
Our center will endeavor to offer:
- refuge housing
- therapeutic and pastor counseling
- vocational education
- legal assistance
- advocacy for those who's voices aren't heard
Building a better world for children.
