Serve Our Church

Jesus has called us to join him on mission. Right here. Right now.

At River West, we believe that every follower of Christ is the recipient of a divine mission. The way we see it, this is both a humbling privilege and a huge responsibility. This mission involves sharing the Gospel and serving others like Christ. Here you’ll find opportunities to serve alongside others in our church, city, and world. Together, we believe we’ll see amazing things happen as we roll up our sleeves, dream big, and love our neighbors near and far, all for Jesus’ glory.
