At Riverside we believe the church is more than just a building or a place to meet.
The church is us.
The church is community.
WHAT WE DO
We are passionate about Jesus and we are not ashamed to tell people about Him.
If you are looking for a place where you can get plugged in or if you are looking to find out more about Jesus, we would love to meet YOU!
Strasburg, VA is located in the Shenandoah Valley and alongside of the Northern Fork of the Shenandoah River.
Pastor Tom Mozingo was born in Fairfax, VA in 1964. Growing up, church was such a vital part of his life, that he only missed 1 Sunday – the day he was born! Ministry, in some form or another, has always been the focal point of God’s direction, including the marrying of his partner in love and life, Colette, in 1991. The addition of their precious daughter Mallory, in 1993, only strengthened this team, as together they desire to reach people of all ages and in all stages, for Christ.
From Fairfax, VA, to Montgomery, AL, to Woodstock, VA, using all that they had learned in each area served, God led Tom to start Riverside Church, in his own town of Strasburg, VA, in May of 2011. Riverside, a come-as-you-are casual and welcoming family, started in their basement, and is proof that the people are the church and not a building. They have been privileged for almost a decade now to watch God fulfill the scripture He gave Pastor Tom in John 12:32, “And when I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw everyone to Myself.”
FIND YOUR FAITH
Riverside Church was founded in the hearts of Pastor Tom and his wife Colette. Their passion for the community of Strasburg, VA and surrounding towns led them to take a leap of faith. The idea behind Riverside Church is to be a steady source of life-giving waters flowing freely, to bring nourishment to the community.
