"Every single day is a new journey here at New River. Over the past few months we have endured some tough times together because of the August 2016 flood. Our church was severly damaged, but with God's guidance and provision, we are walking through this together. It has been an awesome privelage connecting with students here as well as their parents and families. These students have become like mine and Paige's own children! It is an honor to be able to invest in them daily. 


Our worship ministry here at NRBC is constantly changing for the better and we would love to have you be a part of it. Whether it be in the choir, playing an instrument, or participating in worship with the congregation, we have a place for you! Come check it out and see how the Lord can use you here at New River Baptist Church!"

See you Sunday!

Bro. Erik Willie
