Network of Related Pastors
The River Church is a church of the Network of Related Pastors, overseen by Apostle Rod and Mary Aguillard, Senior Overseers of the NRP (pictured above). Apostle Keith and Penny Tucci and Pastors Mike and Michelle Frie are also apostolic overseers of The River Church.
The mission of the NRP can be summed up in four main points :
1. To be apostolic fathers and mentors to pastors.
2. To be a support system to the pastor and his family.
3. To be a relational oversight to the local church and leadership.
4. To be a strategic network for greater effectiveness of the local church.
The Network of Related Pastors has united with the vision to:
1. Launch new churches domestically and globally.
2. Develop and release five-fold ministry for regional impact.
3. Advance the voice of moral reformation to our nation.
4. Empower and champion generational success.
