Job Description:

River of Life is a multi-generational church with a contemporary worship style that blends fresh songs of modern worship. Services are purposefully designed to complement the sermon. The atmosphere is "Minnesota nice," warm and welcoming. As you walk into the main lobby you are greeted with warm smiles in a freshly updated lobby. There is a buzz in the air with energy and activity of people connecting and sharing life.


Located just 30 miles northwest of Minneapolis, River of Life Church (ROL) was established 24 years ago by the Evangelical Free Church of America. Senior Pastor, Dave Johnson, has led the church for 23 of those years, bringing godly leadership, strong Bible teaching, and a warm and engaging family atmosphere. Currently, ROL welcomes 400-500 adults, youth and children to church each week.


ROL is in a season of preparation for growth that is to come. Over the last year they have significantly invested in updating the facilities and bringing alignment within their staff structure. They are placing a high value on having a great staff environment as God leads them to an exciting future. This will be a great place to grow in skill, confidence and creativity.


After five years of being a portable church, ROL planted permanent roots on a beautiful 40-acre campus just outside the town of Elk River. The 15-year-old campus includes a 550-seat worship center and support space for children and youth. The church is currently updating its facilities and, in the future, hopes to expand ministry space to accommodate future growth.
