Bob and Debbie Landis are the senior pastors of River Church. Bob was born and raised in Juniata County and Debbie in neighboring Snyder County. They have a daughter Cori and a son-in-law Dan through their marriage.
We believe that everything we do needs to flow out of our relationship with our Savior and Lord, JESUS CHRIST. We believe in the local and worldwide Church.
Our prayer is in Jesus's Word out of John 17:19-25 (AMP)
19 And so for their sake and on their behalf I sanctify (dedicate, consecrate) Myself, that they also may be sanctified (dedicated, consecrated, made holy) in the Truth. 20 Neither for these alone do I pray [it is not for their sake only that I make this request], but also for all those who will ever come to believe in (trust in, cling to, rely on) Me through their word and teaching, 21 That they all may be one, [just] as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe and be convinced that You have sent Me. 22 I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one [even] as We are one: 23 I in them and You in Me, in order that they may become one and perfectly united, that the world may know and [definitely] recognize that You sent Me and that You have loved them [even] as You have loved Me.24 Father, I desire that they also whom You have entrusted to Me [as Your gift to Me] may be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory, which You have given Me [Your love gift to Me]; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
Dale and Char Graybill are associated pastors of River Church and live in Mifflintown with their 4 children—Tyler, Brianna, Autumn and Hannah.

Char loves being a stay-at-home mom, volunteering in her kids schools, helping out where needed at the church, and encouraging women in their walk with Jesus. Dale is a full-time intercessory missionary, spending his days passionately praying for God's purpose to be released on the earth in the hearts and lives of people in Juniata County, Pa, the US and beyond. He also serves in the community and church where needed.

Along with our pastors, the elders provide leadership at River Church. They are continually seeking God for direction for River Church, praying for and disciplining the Body and serving wherever needed. Their goal is to point each person to Christ, who is the Head of the Church.
