The Ridge provides financial support and service-based mission trips to Ghana in partnership with Royal Promise. Royal Promise provides orphan care, medical aid, and a religious-based education to families in Ghana.

Mission trips are planned twice a year with sponsors, Rob and Ronda Wheeler, to introduce members of The Ridge to serving abroad and to work alongside a different culture. It’s a blessing to experience life in a different culture and interact with our Creator in a very different, non-American way. Our missions-focused goal is to expand each participant’s understanding of the Gospel and that includes the expanding the church’s “one another” and “neighbor” beyond the walls of homes, church, and even national boundaries. Our prayer is that we will be the church. “Train the saints in the work of ministry, to build up the body of Christ, until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of God’s Son…” (Eph. 4:12,13)


  • Make a recurring donation. (Suggested amount: $40 per month. If 100 people give at this level, all monthly needs of the school will be met.)
  • Make a one-time gift to support a child’s high school education. (Suggested amounts: $600 covers one year of school, and $1,800 covers all three years.)
    • Please indicate that your gift is for high school education by writing “Royal Promise High School” in the memo line.
