The Youth Ministry at River House is composed of junior high (grades 6-8) and high school (grades 9-12). We exist to be a safe community to find and foster intimacy with Jesus, build lasting relationships, and find your purpose and calling in the story of God. Join us Tuesday nights to enter into the River House family!
Intimacy with Jesus is what we as humans were created for. To know and be known by the Lord, to worship and love our God and to walk in tune with the Spirit of God. This is the foundation for how we view and walk in life. This informs our love for all people and creation.
True Community provides a place for people to belong. To have a place to experience all that comes in life: joys, sorrows, laughter, tears, friendship, memories, and connection. Guiding people to their true identity, daughters and sons of the King of kings.
Unity in diversity brings you into a bigger narrative in life. This brings you into a kingdom lens and furthers heaven on earth now. Unity in essentials, diversity in non-essentials, charity in all things.
Safety provides protection to be open to your pain, which is the first step to healing. Safety and trust are essential for a thriving family.
