Prior establishing itself as a myth, Pastor Richard's Mission was once deemed as an existing element of the game. According to players, the mission was to be given by Pastor Richards to Tommy Veretti. The nature of the mission is revealed to do something with the promotion of Richard's ideas in the city along with the inclusion of Mercedes Cortez in the mission for undisclosed reasons. The hunt for the mission remained the talk of forums and discussions for a couple of years until all the searches went futile, ultimately deciding that no such mission exists. However, players still hold the view that the mission was cancelled, due to the demise of the voice actor playing Pastor Richards in the game.
