MINISTRIES AT RIVER CITY CHURCH!
At River City Church we have all kinds of different ministries and areas for you to get involved. We love community and we strive to have ministries that can bring people together. Our goal is to help challenge ourselves to grow in Christ and in community with each other, we love to have fun and to continually get better in all areas of life and ministry.
Chris and Erin Shulhan are the Worship and Creative Arts Pastors at River City Church. They joined the pastoral team in September 2011 but have been leading together at River City for more than 12 years. Their passion is to see all people encounter the Glory and Presence of God in a way that changes lives and moves the heart of the Father. They aim to establish a culture of honor, excellence and holiness in their own lives, and in the lives of those who serve alongside them. Their desire is to change atmospheres both in Edmonton and around the world.
"Erin and Chris Shulhan are on the cutting edge of what God is doing in this next generation. As they call the body of Christ to worship in spirit and in truth, their gatherings are marked by the holiness of God, His unspeakable joy, and the freedom of the Holy Spirit. I wholeheartedly recommend their worship ministry to anyone desiring to go deeper in God. You will not be disappointed with this couple who carries character that matches the anointing upon their lives."
Currently we are feeling led to dive into the word of God in an atmosphere of community and accountability with the Young Adults that are a part of River City Church.. If you are between the ages of 18-35 and desire to go deeper with the Lord and deeper into community, we welcome you to come join us! You can keep updated on the weekly details of this group by sending either of us a message on Facebook and we will add you to the group!
FORWARD Youth & FORWARD Compassion
The driving scripture for our vision for the youth of this city is Isaiah 61. We believe the Lord wants to make the youth of this nation into “oaks of righteousness…a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.” We also believe he wants to take them to a place where they actually become the ones who can carry out the compassionate ministry of Jesus described in this passage. Our vision for young people specifically, is to see them delivered from apathy and despair. We long to see them healed, restored, filled with the Holy Spirit and burning with passionate love for Christ so that they can become effective minsters of the Gospel here and cross-culturally.
Currently we are doing one-on-one mentoring with the Youth that we have made connections with, and we are training up a team of leaders from our young adults group to be able to facilitate whatever move of God we believe we are about to see in Edmonton. Our prayer is that the Lord would direct us in this next season to reach the youth that he puts in our path in order that we may work towards this vision.

Jesus calls the church to be a “house of prayer” in Matthew 21:13. He also teaches us how to pray with the "Lord's Prayer" in Matthew 6:5-19. We are to acknowledge His holiness , to pray in His Kingdom, to trust in His provision, to embrace forgiveness and to pray for His power and glory to be magnified in the earth through His church. In Matthew 7:7-11, Jesus encourages us to “keep asking… keep on seeking… keep on knocking…” We are to be relentless in praying, and consistent in fasting both personally and corporately. Every Wednesday we meet for prayer, sharing what God is doing in our lives and praying in Kingdom purposes. At this moment we are meeting at Pastor Rick and Carol’s home at 7:00pm, contact us for the address and more details.
