Who We Are

Reel Life International is a non-profit 501(c)3 formed to work alongside the church in cultivating a passion for the Gospel through short-term missions. By mobilizing people and resources for sustainable assistance initiatives, RLI endeavors to serve and share the love of Christ with orphans and impoverished families. Our work is accomplished through local field partners as well as the many volunteers who travel with us. In addition to an incredible hands-on experience, RLI also provides participants with an opportunity to explore biblical life application principles which greatly improve perspective and help provide clarity to one’s life purpose.

“Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Rescue the weak and needy…”
(Psalm 82:3-4a)



Formed in 2009, the work of Reel Life International has grown to reach several countries including Costa Rica, The Dominican Republic, Mexico, Peru, Cuba, Haiti, Honduras and Guatemala. Our endeavors include a variety of Gospel-centered projects, such as education, clean water initiatives, medical, orphan care, church planting, evangelism and construction. We believe that personal involvement, adequate resources and effective partnerships with the local church are the primary keys necessary for bringing about the most effective long-term alleviation of the social and spiritual issues we seek to address.

Reel Life serves as a conduit, sending both people and resources to further the sustainable work of our field partners.
