Overview

The Mission of Fox Valley Christian Action is to help the local church serve under-resourced communities around them. Our passion is to see the power of the Gospel transform lives of families living in our local public and subsidized housing communities.  We accomplish this through residential summer camp, school-year teen programming, and after school kids clubs with Crossroads Kids Clubs.

Fox Valley Christian Action is non-profit organization governed by a board of directors. We are supported by faith through charitable giving. We are members of the Evangelical Council of Financial Accountability. 

History

In 1977, founders Champ Boutwell, Tony Danhelka and Paul Johannaber began Riverwoods Christian Center as a camping ministry to enable youth from disadvantaged areas to experience the hope, power and love of Jesus Christ. During the 1980s, the ministry began also to work with families inside their under-resourced neighborhoods and communities throughout the Fox Valley. Alongside local churches, we began providing these families with advocacy, support, education and discipleship. In an effort to expand this successful and much-needed aspect of the ministry, in 2011 Riverwoods reorganized its ministries under the banner of Fox Valley Christian Action and introduced Riverworks Life Skills Outreach.
