The River Church is a church that desires to connect people with God in a way that will change their lives forever. We believe that God has called us to build a Biblically-functioning community of believers who are solid in their faith, passionate in their service for the King, and compassionate toward those who do not know Christ. We know that we don't have all the answers, but we desire to introduce people to the One who does.
The River Church is led by a board of Elders and served by a ministry leader team. We value having a team of elders who lead the church and believe that it is the Biblical model of church government. We desire to call a man that can partner with the team of elders as they seek to guide the church with which God has entrusted them. We believe that every person who plugs into The River is called to use his or her gifts to honor God. We seek a man who can help people discover their gifts, as well as help train and equip them to put their gifts to use in our community and in the world.
The River Church believes in the value of small groups where the bigger church body becomes smaller, so that people can better connect with one another. Our next lead pastor should be someone who has a passion for small groups, and will communicate and promote the value of this central function of our church body through words and action.
The River Church is committed to shepherding and encouraging people to grow in their faith. We value solid Bible teaching that is relevant to our lives, challenges us to grow in our faith and encourages us to reach our community and world. If the words "come as you are" stir anything inside you, then you have a good idea of our atmosphere.
If you are a proven leader with the ability to cast a vision to a community of Christ-followers, a passion for building the Kingdom of God through a local church community, have a heart for the lost, a commitment to helping the church grow through Biblical teaching, and transformational small groups we encourage you to send your resume to pastorsearch@HitTheRiver.com
