Course Overview

Courses To Help You Grow With Jesus

The primary focus of The River is helping you read and understand and apply the Bible in your own life so that you can grow in faith and joy in Christ. We realize that everyone is on their own journey and may be at various stages of growth. That’s why we provide a variety of courses to make sure you can select those that meet you right where you are. And in each of the courses, you’ll be encouraged to engage with the text yourself. Our classes are not lectures. You won’t simply be told what to think but invited into reading and wrestling with what the passage in view means.

Course Schedules To Fit Your Busy Life
Our courses are presented in a modular format. Typically, they will meet once a week over a period of a few weeks. This allows you to participate without unduly disrupting your regular schedule. Each course is designed to cover the text or topic in view in a thorough yet efficient way. And, all of our basic courses are free for the participants.

Courses Centered Around The Word
Each course is designed to immerse participants in Biblical texts as the foundation for everything taught and they all reflect the broad consensus of historic evangelical teaching. Instructors for the courses are seasoned and gifted Bible teachers who not only share the vision for this ministry, but are also practitioners, not mere theoreticians.

Reading Scripture: Our Foundational Course
This fundamental course is offered multiple times throughout the year and lays the groundwork for learning to read Scripture well. The other classes are offered in rotation. For your convenience, the stream of classes can be entered at just about any point. Our goal is to make reading and understanding the Word of God accessible for everyone.

“I am thoroughly enjoying the classes offered through The River. I love reading the Word, but I have often felt I was missing so much. The classes have removed that burden by helping me learn just to read the words as they are written and ask myself what the Spirit-inspired author wants me to know.”
