Who We Are (Our Mission)

Welcome to our official website. Rising River Media is a non-profit Christian media and publishing company. Our mission is to produce quality media resources in support of organic house churches. We have four basic priorities or goals which guide what we do: 1) To Proclaim the good news of the Kingdom of God, 2) To Raise up and equip committed disciples of that Kingdom, 3) To Plant multiplying organic house churches, and 4) To Serve “the least of these.”

We hope you’ll take a few minutes to check out the resources we offer. Because we’re continually updating those resources, we hope you’ll become a regular visitor.

Don’t forget to interact with us on our blog, “Maurice’s Ground Roast,” which you’ll find in the Menu tabs above.
