A Letter from Pastors John & Debbie Lindell

Hello Friend,

We are so excited to be connecting with you! If you are searching for a church home, we invite you to come and be a part of all that is happening at James River Church. Whether you live near one of our four campuses or choose to join us online – we welcome you! It is our prayer as you connect with us today, that you will encounter God’s amazing grace, your faith will be strengthened, and you will find hope for whatever you are walking through.

And always remember, you were created to belong to a life-giving community of people who believe in you – and there is a place for you here.

Welcome home!

Pastors John & Debbie Lindell

A Church Where You Belong

We are blown away by how God continues to strengthen and build the church and use us as a body of believers to bring the good news of the Gospel to people who need Jesus! As one of the churches in the Springfield and southwest Missouri area, we unite around the calling to be Christ’s hands extended by loving with extravagance, serving with genuineness, and welcoming people home.

Welcome To The Future

We are so excited for what God has planned for the future of James River Church! We would love for you to join us in making a permanent home for the JRC Joplin Campus and providing for significant updates to the South Campus that will help us to continue to minister to the people God is sending to us.

James River Christmas

December 7th & 8th

Bring your whole family and join us for James River Christmas on Saturday, December 7th or Sunday, December 8th! You will not want to miss these exciting services with beautiful Christmas music, a spectacular production, and an encouraging message as we come together to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Soul Set Free

A Book by John Lindell

The gospel is even better than what we believe. Soul Set Free will help you discover the true meaning behind God’s grace and learn to no longer view the gospel as anything less than a truth that sets your soul free. It will change your life forever.

She Prays

A Devotional by Debbie Lindell

In She Prays, Debbie Lindell invites you on a 31-day journey to experience a confident and conversational relationship with your heavenly Father. Her desire is that your soul will be transformed as your confidence in prayer grows, and that your faith will be strengthened as you see God work through your prayers in ways you never imagined possible.
