The Feast - Providence, R.I.

In 2015, Richardson East began supporting a new church plant in Providence, Rhode Island called "The Feast".  The Feast began as an idea in the Fall of 2012. Lead planters Caleb & Fran Borchers moved to Cumberland, RI in 2010 for a two year apprenticeship in church planting. At the end of that time they were approved by their church planting coaching network to go plant a church. They had fallen in love with the West Side of Providence, and moved into the Armory District in September 2012.  Caleb has a Masters in Divinity and a BA in Biblical Languages and Youth & Family Ministry. Fran has a BA in Youth & Family Ministry.  They have 3 children. For more information about "The Feast", visit their website at www.thefeastprovidence.org

Citysquare - Dallas, TX

Richardson East has had a long history partnering with CitySquare largely due to 2 of our former preachers being in key leadership roles there.  CitySquare exists to fight the causes and effects of poverty through service, advocacy, and friendship. Together as a community of neighbors, we feed the hungry, heal the sick, house the homeless, and renew hope in the heart of our city

Recently, we have been able to partner with CitySquare particularly within their Hospitality program that provides hospitality training, as well as job creation. By incorporating classroom instruction, industry certifications, hands-on learning, and on-the-job training, participants in this program gain access to careers in the thriving hospitality market. A market that offers an ever-expanding opportunity to work in the hotel industry, convention services, restaurants, and within entertainment venues.

forestridge Elementary - RISD

For several years, Richardson East has "adopted" Forestridge Elementary by being a strong support for their teachers and PTA.  We are able to help with several events throughout the school year like Book Fairs and Field Days as well as occasional projects on the school facilities.  

Forestridge has a very dedicated and devoted staff, and we are thankful for the opportunity to support and encourage them as they commit to the education of their students.
