Leadership

Tom Golden   Lead Pastor   Krista and I work hard to establish a safe place for you and your family to worship! You will feel loved and appreciated every time you come worship with us. The world is full of snares and many disappointments. In our home and in our church, we teach love and respect amongst each other. River Life Church is a place you can find encouragement, hope, and love each week! My interests are spending time with my wife; playing with and hugging my children; technology, computers & gadgets; old Star Trek re-runs and old Sci-Fi movies; reading anything to stretch me and to help with ministry; oh - and chocolate (hold the nuts please!)

Glenn Kight   Missions Pastor   Hi this is Pastor Glenn at River Life Church, our ministry is about HELPS see 1Cor.12:28. Supporting our church efforts and our Senior Pastor in every way we can. We teach Bible Study on Wednesday night. I am the Missions director for River Life, and sometimes lead groups on short term trips. We are looking forward to our Missions Convention and Banquet coming up Sept. 9 & 10. We also head up a ministry that provides freezers filled with meat for Missionaries and Pastors in need.  I am happy to share Mary and I have been married 44 years (she surely deserves an award and a reward). We have two sons, both of whom we are very proud. We also have a most excellent Daughter in law. We are the proud grandparents of Dustin, Lila & Jessa. We are also very proud of our great grand children Lilly and Bentley. I enjoy fishing, sharing time with family, both natural and church family, but our greatest joy comes from helping others, in many different ways.  God Bless all, come visit us at River Life Church.
