Partnering with parents to be a relational community that builds friendships to share Jesus with the teens at The River and their friends.


The River Youth exists to IGNITE a passion in students to love God and love others and FUEL it by serving the world.

And on Sunday evenings they meet from 6:30pm-8:00pm for music, teaching and small group time.

FUEL is our 9th-12th grade students. Our goal is to create environments where students prioritize their relationship with Christ, influence their friends, and experience personal ministry.
