As followers of Christ we are all ministers of the gospel and have significant roles in God's kingdom. Below are some brief bios and contact information about our pastoral staff and secretary.


    Pastor Scott has served at Riverside since 2004. He graduated from Crown College with a BA in Bible and Theology, then pursued his MDiv from Bethel Seminary where he graduated in 1997. Originally from Ohio, Scott met his wife, Christy, while at college and has been in the upper midwest ever since. He has three children and their family enjoys camping in the summer and enjoying God's creation. He loves to see lives transformed by the power of Christ in the gospel (Romans 1:16).

    Shirley keeps things flowing smoothly around the church. If you need to know what's happening at the church or if the facility is available just ask Shirley. She also maintains the library and can give you the latest books you should check out. You might even catch her outside maintaining the flower beds at the church on occasion. Whether you need information, a good read, or just an encouraging word, talk to Shirley.
