Welcome to RIVERWOODnextsteps!
At Riverwood, we believe signing up for NEXT STEPS may be the most important thing you do this year.  You are both called and gifted by God  “for building up the body of Christ”.  We believe using your giftedness to build up the church, “the body of Christ”,  is both eternally important and presently joyful.  Our goal at Riverwood is to equip as many people as possible to use their gifts through our ministries and ministry partners to build up His church.
And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ.  – Ephesians 4:11-12
NEXT STEPS is made up of four steps designed to help you grow both personally and spiritually.  These steps equip you to follow Jesus, connect to the church, discover your purpose, and use your God-given giftedness for His Kingdom.
