Lead Pastor & Elder
After 13 years of ministry and church planting in Virginia and North Carolina, Keith moved to Utah in 2010 with his wife Angie (and their 7 children!) to serve as a pastor at Calvary Chapel in Salt Lake City. In early 2017, Keith returned 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 enjoys time with his family, playing guitar, coaching leaders, and untangling fishing line on Utah’s amazing rivers. Email: [email protected]
Associate Pastor & ElderWith 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.”

OUR LEADERSHIP AT RIVER COMMUNITY CHURCH
Together with Pastor Keith Radke and Pastor Joss Walter, Pastor Kevin Lund and Pastor Robert Marshall of Risen Life Church serve together as elders of River Community Church, fulfilling this capacity until more elders are raised up from within to oversee the church together.
We are a pastor led, elder governed, team driven ministry, and we are grateful to be “In Team” with Risen Life Church. Pastor Steve Pierson of Redemption Hill Church also serves as an advisor to the ministry, representing Redemption Hill’s partnership in planting River Community Church.
