On Sunday afternoon, October 22, The River is hosting a picnic. We’ll provide the food. You provide the company! There is no charge.
We’re celebrating five years of the Lord extending His grace and truth through the ministry of The River.
For over six years, The River has been a resource for Christians to cultivate a growing understanding of Scripture, basic doctrine, and ministry skills.
Every Christian needs an opportunity to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus and to deepen his or her understanding of Scripture (2 Peter 3:18). Because of the limits of staff, time, and resources, some congregations are limited in what they can offer to help their people find what they might hunger after or need. The River supplements what Christians are experiencing in their respective local churches, providing learning opportunities to help them become better equipped to live well and serve effectively in their particular church (Ephesians 4:11-16). Through an informed understanding of Scripture, believers will discover a richness of Biblical truth that will supplement their journey in faith, enhance their joy in Jesus, and encourage them in ministry.
The cooperative nature of The River ministry is also seen in the Biblical training, curricula, and mentorship we offer directly to local churches and their leaders. A growing number of local churches are discovering how The River can serve as part of their in-house discipleship program.
“Grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ”
2 Peter 3:18
Because of the demands on staff, time and resources, some congregations cannot offer all the help their people might long for or need.

Courses are scheduled in a modular format. Core courses meet one night a week over a five or six week period allowing participants to take classes while not unduly disrupting their lives and ministry.
Each course is anchored in a consensus of evangelical, Biblical truth and is designed to immerse the participants in Biblical texts as the foundation for all that is taught.Learn More
In addition to core classes, The River offers on-and-two evening “intensives”. These shorter classes focus on a particular passage or topic – an issue that might not require the kind of time given to a regular class.Learn More
We hold an open forum, question and answer time, on the first Monday of each month called Text du Jour. This is a safe environment for people to come with their basic questions about the Bible and the life of faith.Learn More
