The Board is elected by the members of the River Church to administrate the church. They are responsible for things such as the oversight of the Senior Pastor, the spiritual health of the church, facilitating the steps to membership, and finances, to name a few. More detail on the function of the Local Board of Administration can be seen in the Wesleyan Discipline. If you wish to contact one of our board members please contact the church office.
