Riverwood Student Ministries exists to empower students to be with and go with Jesus. Everything we do together is about discovering who Jesus is and learning how to follow Him. The more we get to know Him, the more our lives will start to look like His and then we will be able to join Him on His mission to change the world. We plan and host regular events and activities to help your students connect with peers and our awesome team of leaders. 

You can stay up to date on everything that happens in our student ministries by checking out our Facebook Page and by subscribing to our regular email updates (Click here to subscribe to our weekly Student Ministry email).
