Our Mission

The River Student Ministry exists to connect lost students with Christ and encourage them to GROW in faith, REACH the world, ADORE God, CARE for each other, and ENGAGE in ministry.


Music & Mentors - Operation Students

MUSIC & MENTORS - Every Wednesday 5:00 - 5:30

“A time for those youth who are just starting out and need some hands on help to get started and for those who have the basics just to practice what they are already working on. Some instruments are available for them to use, also giving them an opportunity to try something new! See Pastor Ben for more information.”
