Out of a passion to see other local churches thrive, Pastors André and Wilma have created an avenue through which they can humbly share what they have learnt and thereby encourage others to grow to their full potential.
Rivers has always existed to promote the local church and help leaders to become as effective and relevant as they can be in reaching the lost and seeing the community impacted. Over the years Rivers has had an increasing numbers of requests from pastors and leaders who have wanted to work in a close relationship with us towards the same goal. The Rivers Network exists to build those relationships and offer leaders helpful advice on church management, ministry effectiveness and leadership. The Rivers Network is not a denomination or a movement, but simply a group of churches that relate to us and glean from us to be more effective in their ministries.
The Rivers Network is a network of local churches who share common goals and who have formalised their relationship with Rivers to fulfil God’s commission to establish relevant and thriving churches. We are a resource to help leaders grow their churches, wherever they may be. We offer a means whereby leaders can grow to greater effectiveness through sharing what has and hasn’t worked for us on our journey.
We do not exercise authority over you or your church, nor do we provide spiritual supervision in matters of internal dispute. However, we do offer advice and perspective if invited to do so. We are not exclusive. Involvement in the Rivers Network does not mean that you need to leave your current denomination, other networks or affiliations.
The Rivers Network exists to build relationships with those who share a common desire to build strong, healthy and relevant churches that grow and are effective in reaching the lost and impacting the community.
