Who We ARE

Our People

We are a joyful group of imperfect people who seek to love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, and to love our neighbors as we (by nature) love ourselves. 

Since we know that none of us are perfect, we humbly offer love, acceptance, encouragement, support and forgiveness for all who gather at River Oaks Church.  We are a family

We are all at different points along the same spiritual path.  We believe that through the powerful, transformative Word of God, our journey starts right where we are today, and through God's amazing grace, it takes us little by little, day by day, to where He wants us to be. We do it together!

Who we Are

Our Story

River Oaks Church began as a new church plant in Wentzville in 2003. We began meeting in the Timberland High School auditorium. We experienced several years of steady growth; we gathered in multiple different locations - including two stops in the Batteries Plus building up on Wentzville Parkway. We were truly blessed in 2013, when Pastor Larry Rodgers was brought on board as Senior Pastor. Through his caring leadership and his passion for God's Word, River Oaks has continued to grow spiritually as well as numerically. In 2018, we relocated to our new, permanent location on Highway T in Foristell, and new chapters are being written every day for the River Oaks Church family.

Who We Are

Our Message

It can be difficult to really connect with other people - especially in today's super-busy, instant gratification society. They key, we've found, is to slow down a little bit, put people ahead of programs, put truth ahead of opinions, and put following God ahead of our own desires and plans. 

God is much greater than we can ever imagine, and while His ways may not be our ways, His primary desire for us is that we would know Him; that we would come together in community, and live lives that bring honor to His name! That truth is found exclusively in God's Holy Word, and it is the foundation of everything we believe, everything we teach, and everything we do.
