Hi- My husband and I have been involved with Rivers Edge from the beginning and it has been awesome to see where God has taken this church! Both of our elementary aged children have been babies in this church and go to school here so if they aren’t sitting still during church it’s because they are comfortable here and church feels like home to them. We hope that this would feel like home to you as well. We are a gathering of the unfinished who love to praise the Lord.  I love leading worship and women’s bible study! I’m also a part time physician assistant and a full time wife, mom and Jesus follower. 

Matt enjoys helping Rivers Edge in all aspects of ministry.  Along with his wife, Judy, they have been part of Rivers Edge from the beginning.  Matt is available for Bible Studies and encouragement as well as helping with connections to resources for whoever needs them.  

Rick, family man and business administrator, enjoys letting God use him in leading for God’s glory. Adventuresome Harley-riding, tree-house building, tractor driving, meeting leader, Rick is most excited when another one of his contacts and friends starts a personal walk with Jesus. He freely gives and shares the Good News of Free Salvation in Jesus available for all.
