SRCC provides monthly support to outreach ministries including Young Life-which has a thriving club in the valley as well as ‘Baptist Youth Mission’, an established ministry mentoring organization, ‘Campus Ventures’, known for offering outreach and discipleship to the students of the University of Wyoming, and ‘Free City Church’, a church plant in Missouri.
