Worship Arts Pastor


River Community Church in Red Bluff was planted in the Spring of 2014 by Neighborhood Church of Anderson and Cottonwood. Nat Porter and Mark Roberts were the original planters. They had a vision for a new church in Red Bluff; a church where the gospel of Jesus Christ would be proclaimed, lives would be changed, and people would be brought into a new family...the family of God.  It would be a community of followers of Jesus who would pursue the joy of God for the glory of God! The church started out with a handful of people who embraced their vision, and worked hard to make it so.

Today, the church is led by Rich Titus and Mateo Perez.  We continue to embrace the vision of proclaiming the Gospel in such a way that lives are changed, joy in Jesus is shared, and God is glorified through it all!  We possess a strong passion for being a light in our city; a light that shines on the Kingdom of God, inviting all who would to enter.
