This is a family.

Say hello to some of the people who make this place feel more like home.

LEAD PASTORS
Greg and Bonnie Temke
Pastor Greg is a native of Cincinnati, Ohio. In his senior year of high school, Greg met Jesus Christ and accepted Him as his personal Savior. Greg accepted the call into ministry and enrolled at Central Bible College, and graduated in May, 1984 with a B.A. in Bible. While in college, Pastor Greg met the love of his life, Bonnie Carter. They will celebrate 33 years of wedded bliss in June of 2017. Greg and Bonnie have two children, Landon, 29 and Lindsie, 27. Lindie is married to the love of her life, Matt.
 
Greg’s ministry style is relational, because it is a privilege to pastor God’s wonderful people. His preaching style is a teaching-preaching style where altar calls are given to allow the Holy Spirit the opportunity to move. Pastor Greg’s hobbies include landscaping, deer hunting and racquetball. He loves Mexican food and his dream vacation is a trip around the world. Bonnie loves to quilt and is a gifted amateur photographer. Her favorite foods are strawberries, chocolate and brownies. As an Arkansas native, she roots for the Arkansas Razorbacks. Her dream vacation is a trip to Hawaii.
YOUTH PASTOR
Lindsey Combs
Pastor Lindsey was born and raised in Munford. She has called River of Life her home church for as long as she can remember. While she received Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at a young age, she fully dedicated her heart and life to Him at age 24. She was involved as a volunteer youth leader for four years before accepting the role of Youth Pastor. She was previously employed as a Radiologic Technologist for 10 years at a local hospital, but obeyed the Lord to attend Tennessee School of Ministry and pursue the call of ministry on her life. She completed three years of TSOM and is a licensed minister with the Assemblies of God.
Pastor Lindsey loves to connect with the students of this community on a personal level, and believes that relationships build a bridge of trust so that you can speak into a person’s life. She encourages each student to have a personal, one on one, relationship with God. Lyndsey’s hobbies are spending time with her “fur-baby”, a Shitzu named Bentley, crafting, reading, and hanging out with friends.
