Co-founders Mark Reighard and Bret Byus never imagined that Righteous Rides would one day include missionary staff when they bought their first van in 2007. Like it says in Ephesians 3:20, God’s plans were bigger and better than anything they could have asked for or imagined. Presently, Righteous Rides is blessed to have four full-time missionary staff working in our office and garage.
