The River’s official launch was September 8, 2002, and God has been faithful throughout this journey to bring the gospel to River Falls. Since its launch, The River has sought to be a gospel-centered presence in River Falls by serving the community and by being a faithful witness. God has since graciously provided the means to purchase land in River Falls as a future site for a worship facility.
In December 2019, The River called Caleb Van Roekel as its new Lead Pastor and subsequently hired Brandon Ryan in March 2021 as its new Worship/Executive Pastor. We are excited to see what God does at our church and in River Falls in this new season!
