Daniel & Brandi Delong lead an amazing team of musicians at our weekend gatherings. Daniel was trained for two years at Hillsong church in Australia. We are fortunate to have many musicians with a wealth of experience and more importantly a heart of worship.




A team of great people make up the kids ministry at River of Life. Kids church meets every during all ROL gatherings. Our children have fun while still being educated about who God is and how much He loves them. Kids are broken into age appropriate groups with newborn-2 in our nursery (lead by Michelle Ferrel and a team of volunteers). Ages 3 and 4 participate in Little Explorerz. Kids 5-11 are lead by Niki Conneley and her team of amazing volunteers in our Kid Quest class. For details visit the kids site.v





There are many people in different realms of leadership at River of Life. Too many to mention on one webpage. We are blessed to have many adults from different walks of life who volunteer their time on a daily basis to make River of Life the outreach oriented church that it is today. As you explore our site you will find many more examples from our leadership team.
