We worship in downtown Blacksburg, only a few blocks away from Virginia Tech. We have undergrads and grad students from VT, VCOM, Radford, and other schools in the area, and our students are involved in several campus ministries as well, including InterVarsity, Cru, YoungLife, Valor, and more! We encourage our students to get involved here at The River as well with Men's and Women's groups, Life Groups, and volunteering. Contact our Director of Student Ministries, Chris Meckley, to get connected with our family!

Home Away From home

Home Away From Home is a program at The River that pairs 2-3 graduate or undergraduate students with a host family from The River. You will get together at least once/month for dinner, and it's a great way to connect with other people at The River. If you're interested in signing up, contact Chris Meckley today!

Free University Student Lunches

We host monthly free lunches open to all university students (and their families) immediately following our worship service. Our Fall 2018 lunches will be on September 30, October 28, and December 2, all beginning at 11:15am.
