In the following short videos, the four pastors of the River share a little about their lives, their perspectives on the purpose the River plays in the lives of our members, and what they believe God is doing through our faith community.
CHARLES PARK: GOD'S PROMISE OF A BIGGER BETTER LIFE
Founding Pastor Charles Park shares the biblical principle upon which the River was built, how pastoring has helped him come to terms with his own weaknesses, and how the River encourages faith in the living God rather than religious dogma.
SARA FURSTE: NOTICING AND RESPONDING TO GOD
Sara Furste always felt resistant when other people tried to tell her how she should connect with God. Now, as a Pastor, Sara tries to help each person in our community find their own way of responding to and interacting with God.
CAROLINE PARK: RAISING UP CONNECTED KIDS and Youth
Lay Pastor Caroline Park shares about our approach to children's ministry. Our goal is not to teach kids to behave in certain ways or believe certain things but to help them nurture their own sense of self-discovery about God.
JOHN FURSTE: CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR PEOPLE TO EXPERIENCE the living GOD
Pastor John Furste shares that faith is so much more than teaching people what to believe or how to behave. Instead, we strive to create opportunities for people to encounter and interact with the living God.
