About The River

As God began to put on our hearts a passion for the Saint Croix Valley, people began to come to mind. They are good people who lead good lives, people who love their families, and their community. People who didn’t seem to fit in to any biblical community, and ultimately people who need to hear the Gospel. We believe we can begin to share life with the people we know and in doing so, share the Gospel.


We are led by Jesus to:
Serve our community
Encourage one another
Empower everyday leaders, so
ALL may Declare HIS Glory!
