Who is Riverside Church?

Riverside Church is a growing and vibrant church utilizing multi-site ministry. We embrace an outward focused vision of reaching people for Jesus by strategically leaning toward an attractional model of ministry. It's all about relationship; most importantly with Jesus, but also in community with others. We are passionate about three key ideas:  providing teaching, music and environments which are REAL and RELEVANT to our people and our culture, helping people experience LIFE CHANGE, and giving people opportunity to take OWNERSHIP of their faith.

Community Information

Riverside Church is headquartered in the outer belt of communities surrounding the Twin Cities metro area off of I-94 to the west. An accurate classification of our area would be that the main communities of Big Lake, Monticello, and Becker (plus a host of other cities) are exurban in nature. Distinct from "suburban", our local culture has it all... White Collar, Blue Collar, Agriculture, etc. We also have a campus in Sauk Rapids, MN.

Riverside Students Campus Youth Pastor/Director: Buffalo

Full-Time Position

How would you like the opportunity to reach the next generation in an unapologetically outward-focused multi-site church? We’re looking for our next team member to work with our Pastor of Student Ministries to help lead ministy at our new campus - a central and local leadership role offering plenty of opportunities to invest in the campus, teach and serve, and support RS in achieving its mission of helping students (and everyone in their lives) become fully-devoted followers of Jesus Christ. This role is designed for someone willing to honor and add to the Riverside Students team while developing and growing student ministry.

At Riverside, it's all about relationships – especially with Christ, but also our community with others and unique outreach to our region. We are passionate about providing all ages with a chance to personally encounter Jesus through biblical teaching and creative gatherings that are REAL and RELEVANT to our people and our culture. In the end, we want to lead them to experience life change in Jesus, take ownership of their faith and become a part of His mission to reach others.

If you love the Lord with all of who you are, have a heart for the emerging generation, at least three years of vocational student ministry experience, can both lead and follow well, strong teaching gifting and computer skills, a sound theology that supports the Christian and Missionary Alliance, and are able to seize ministry opportunities with an entrepreneurial spirit and genuine depth, let’s talk!  It's an incredible opportunity to be on a great team, lead a solid group of volunteers, and help create opportunities for transformation. If God has filled your heart with compassion for students, you’re living out of your relationship with Him (versus your skills or personality), and you dream of being on the front lines with others who “get it,” we especially want to hear from you.

A Riverside internship is a hands-on, roll-up-your-sleeves ministry opportunity where you will be trained & discipled by experienced ministry leaders. We're looking for members of our team to contribute in all of the RC campuses: Big Lake, Sauk Rapids & Online.

Maybe you're interested in this unique opportunity because you'd like to deepen and widen who you are at home, in your workplace, at school or in discovering your God-given purpose. Perhaps you're open to exploring what working in a church environment looks like and if it's a possibility in your future. 

That's why we want to spend time developing you through our internship program. Oh, don't worry, you'll work hard! After all, changing the world is hard work, but you'll also get to see the Kingdom of God advanced because of your efforts! 

With that in mind, we do ask for some things for all internship participants:

- a demonstration of maturity, so typically 18 years of age or older
- a follower of Jesus Christ
- someone looking to take next steps and grow
- an ability to be trusted, as well as a capacity to meet deadlines

We believe life transformation happens in the context of relationship, so a high value is placed on engaging and applying what you're learning alongside others in the internship program and on our staff team; descriptions of opportunities are listed in the links below. The application deadline is Sunday, August 27. Internships run from September - May. Don't hesitate and miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime!

To learn more about these opportunities, or to even suggest an area of ministry that isn't currently listed where you'd like to serve, please contact Pastor Tony Myles.
