River of God  
The Mission The People The Need The Work The Organization


Cabécar FamilyThe vision for the River of God organization is to spread the Gospel message of Jesus Christ to the mountain people of Latin America. Through the unity of the Spirit, we will assist the local missionary families in their work to reach people for Christ.

The vision statement is worded differently by the Jones’ brothers, but is united in body by the one head, Jesus Christ.

“To see the peoples of the mountains of southern Costa Rica enter the Kingdom of Heaven and become agents of that Kingdom, contending for it with diligence, humility, and excellence.” – Timothy Jones

“To see the mountain people transformed from the inside out by the gospel of Jesus Christ, to where every area of their lives, community and culture is renewed – ‘Do not be conformed to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind . . .’ (Romans 12:2). We see in the Spirit a people characterized by hard work, faith in God, full of love, joy and peace in the Holy Spirit. We believe God will bring blessing to their lives and communities as outlined in Deuteronomy 28 and 30, as they forsake false gods to serve the one true God. Our ultimate goal is to see the people themselves going out to make disciples of other nations.” – Philip Jones

“To make disciples of Jesus in the mountains of Southeast Costa Rica. Our goal is to see a network of Christians throughout the Cabécar and Bribri tribe and to see the name of Jesus highly exalted throughout these mountains (Acts 19:17b). Our personal focus is mostly on the more isolated, remote areas where I believe God has given us special ability to work.” – David Jones
