2022 Highlight / 2023 Vision Video

The River is a non-profit Christian organization founded by Russ Mason in 2014. The River operates as a Christian church, and also serves as the umbrella covering for Russ' preaching, teaching, and writing ministry. One day soon, we also hope to own and operate a retreat house for pastors, missionaries, young adults, and as a hosting site for various Christian retreats and conferences.

Your contribution and/or monthly financial partnership help make each of these ministries possible.

We deeply appreciate your support and please know that your prayers and your giving are making an eternal impact on people's lives through Love, Prayer, Biblical Teaching, and Life Transforming Discipleship.

2023 Vision

Your contribution /  monthly partnership making an eternal impact

  • Continue to help pastor our local church and see both spiritual and numerical growth.
  • Rent a local 10'X10' space where Russ can pray, write books, prepare messages, and record Bible teaching videos.
  • Russ is excited to make himself available again to occasionally speak at other churches and pray over their members for salvation, healing, and freedom from addictions.
  • We’d like to add some additional members to The River’s Board of Trustees.
  • We feel it’s time to make some strides toward acquiring a retreat home to host pastors, missionaries, young adults, and various groups for retreats. At the very least, we’d like to start receiving donations toward the purchase/renovation of the home.
  • Finish another book that will be a discipleship resources for Christians around the world.
