Fulfilling the Great Commission through fervent prayer, passionate worship and dedication to helping people fulfill their God-given destinies. 



Meet the Pastors

Nearly 30 years since Pastors Matthew and Amy Stoehr moved to Vista with a call to plant a church, they are still passionately serving this community. The River has seen many seasons, but through it all, we have remained committed to seeing God's kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. 

We welcome you

Stay connected

As the body of Christ, we are called to be Christ's body on earth. We need constant encouragement to do that effectively. We're updating the Life Blog daily with devotionals, prayer guides, sermon notes and words of encouragement from our staff and community.
