“Those who believed were of one heart and soul…
they had everything in common.”
(Acts 4:32 ESV)
We are excited about the TEAM God is building at River Community Church,
and about who God still plans to add to our team as we
Gather, Grow & Go together for the Gospel.
Elder & Lead Pastor
After 13 years of ministry and church planting on the East Coast, Pastor Keith moved to Utah in 2010 with his wife Angie (and their 7 children!) to serve as an associate pastor at Calvary Chapel Salt Lake. In early 2017, Keith heeded God’s call to return to church planting in Utah, partnering with Risen Life Church and Redemption Hill Church to launch River Community Church. The Radke’s live in West Jordan, and Pastor Keith spends his time with his family, playing guitar, coaching leaders, and untangling fishing line on Utah’s amazing rivers.
Elder & Lead Pastor
With over 27 years in the ministry, Pastor Joss and his wife Mary (who introduced him to Jesus) bring an incredible amount of experience to the River team. He is a transplant to Sandy Utah from Stockton California, has two adult daughters (the best daughters ever!), and two mini-schnauzers. Pastor Joss loves the Gospels and New Testament letters, is active in bicycling, running and reading, and is an avid San Francisco Giants fan. His “Favorite Place to Be” is Hebrews 4:16, which says “Let us therefore draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
Michael lives in West Jordan with his wife Alyssa and their son Elijah. Michael oversees the administration of the church, building a team to help us dot our i’s, cross our t’s, and keep our spreadsheet formulas behaving. Michael will be serving on our board of directors in 2019.
Youth & Worship Director
Rob is passionate about connecting Youth with a genuine relationship with Jesus, and leading people into God’s presence through authentic and Biblical worship music. Rob and his wife Lorri have 5 children and live in Draper. Rob is a devoted Patriots and Red Sox fan.
Community Groups Director
Tim and Christina live in Taylorsville with their 3 sons. Tim has been active in Community Group ministry for many years, and sets a high-standard of excellence by example for leading growth focused groups. You’ll also find Tim and Christina serving at River to make our gatherings a warm and friendly place. Say “Hello” and ask them how to be involved.
Oak Ministry Missionary Counselor
Josiah and Heather live with their 2 children in West Jordan. Josiah’s vision for Oak Ministry Counseling is found in Isaiah 61, where he believes God’s heart for counseling, coaching and discipleship is to bring people from a place of hurt into their own personally ministry of helping others find healing for their hurts. Josiah plays drums and helps lead worship with Heather. He’s a book expert, so ask him what’s good to read.
