Our Pastor

From Pastor Kirk

What a privilege iOur Pastort is to have the opportunity to serve God here in Peterborough.

My wife, Linda, and I love the city of Peterborough and the beauty of the Kawarthas. Serving Riverside Community Church is such a blessing, and we are thrilled and encouraged to see and experience, on a consistent basis, all that God is doing. Riverside is a strong and growing local expression of the body of Christ in Peterborough. My vision for us is that we would continue to grow and develop into a healthy and vibrant church where we regularly experience the presence of our God. A definition that I have adopted and am encouraging our body at Riverside to adopt and also practice, is this; “Ministry takes place when divine resources meet human needs through loving channels to the glory of God.” Warren Wiersbe.

What am I looking for? Life change, people transformed and released to live in freedom... the freedom only God can bring; that we might live in healthy relationships with God, each other, and ourselves.
