For years, The River has been serving the body of Christ by providing Biblically-anchored training to aid Christians in their growth and to encourage them in their own walk with Jesus and active participation in their respective local churches. The River is committed to local churches in all we do.
From the start, the vision of the ministry has been to partner with local churches. Serving attendees is a big part of that. But serving and partnering with local church leaders is also a critical component of our vision.
Along side the courses offered for any and all who are interested, The River builds into the life of local churches—and their leaders—in more tailored ways.
- We can provide “in house” training targeting specific areas of growth of interest to the leadership. We’ve been invited to teach classes on reading Scripture, leadership development, and marriage, among other topics. Offerings like these free up local leaders from having to prepare material while still enabling a local church to provide focused, needed training.
- We can provide personal coaching and training for pastors and leaders, bringing an objective, Biblically-rooted perspective to the carrying out of the call to shepherd a local church. Whether a short-term, challenge-specific partnership or a long-term mentoring relationship, The River is partnering with local leaders to support and encourage the growth of local churches.
