Our Story

Who we are...

The River Church Cincinnati is a local church with an eternal mission. Cory & Jordan Bowman are the founding pastors. The vision of the church is to fulfill the Great Commission described in Mark chapter 16. To operate in the same power that Jesus and the early Book of Acts church did. There is a hunger for the Power of God in every city, state, region, and country in the world and our goal at The River is to provide a place for residents of the Tri-State region to experience that Power. The River is a place where we experience and cultivate that Power and knowledge of the Holy Spirit on a continual basis. We are a church of solid biblical teaching, anointed preaching, and demonstration of the Holy Spirit. 
The River Church also takes this message of the Gospel outside the walls of the church. Our vision is to see the power of God in the streets and realms of influence of Cincinnati. The power of God is available to EVERYONE and it is our job as believers to make sure that EVERYONE hears this Good News.
EVERYONE should have the opportunity to give their life to Christ. EVERYONE can receive an encounter with the tangible, life-altering, presence of God. We ask that you consider TODAY to be a part of the River Church family in Cincinnati, Ohio. We love you and know that God loves you and has a tremendous plan for your life.
Pastors Cory and Jordan and The River Church Cincinnati acknowledge the incredible impact of Drs. Rodney and Adonica Howard-Browne. This church wouldn't be possible without the example of our spiritual leaders and family in Tampa, FL at The River at Tampa Bay Church and Revival Ministries International.

Our Head Pastors...

Cory & Jordan Bowman are the founding Pastors of The River Church Cincinnati. They, along with their three children, Sawyer, Finn, & Hazel, live in the Cincinnati area. They have a heart and vision to see people raised up in the teaching of God’s Word, to give their lives to Jesus Christ, and to have an encounter with the tangible presence of God through His Holy Spirit.
Cory is a native to Ohio and is a graduate of the Farmer’s School of Business of Miami (OH) University. After having an encounter with God at a church service in Kentucky, Cory decided to pursue the call of God on his life. He moved to Tampa, FL to study at River University. This university is under the ministry and leadership of Drs. Rodney & Adonica Howard-Browne. It was there that God burned a desire in Cory's heart for full-time ministry and to see others experience the Fire of God.
Jordan is from Oklahoma and is a graduate of Rhema Bible Training Center. Her studies were under the leadership of Pastor Kenneth W. Hagin & Rev. Lynette Hagin. After graduating, Jordan felt the call of God to move to Tampa, FL and to work under the ministry of Drs. Rodney & Adonica. 
Cory and Jordan met at the River at Tampa Bay Church and were married. The couple were involved in many different areas and departments of the ministry in Tampa, FL. This ranged from Data Entry, Maintenance, Worship, Youth Leadership, Call Center, Media and Production, and more. While working in Tampa and starting their family, God started speaking to Cory & Jordan. They both felt a burning desire to see Cincinnati, Ohio impacted for eternity. They knew the time would come to plant a church in the area. 
The River Church Cincinnati was founded Fall 2020. It's the heart of Pastors Cory and Jordan for the church to be a place where lives are impacted for eternity and revival happens in the hearts of individuals in the region.
