PASTORS & STAFF

Jim & Karen Britton

Founders / Lead Pastor

Email: pastorjim@riversong.tv

 

Jim Britton has been Senior Pastor at RiverSong Church since its founding January 1, 1985. Within six months he closed his Heating and Air Conditioning company to serve the church full-time. The challenge was on to see if the “Old-time, Holy Ghost” life could be ministered in a “non-religious”, contemporary setting.

 

Having lived in Springfield since 1960, he has a passion to see God’s abundant Life invade our city. Having a “Kingdom Culture,” Pastor Jim and the church are very connected to other churches, pastors, ministries, and programs in our city. He has been blessed to minister in several foreign countries, particularly Russia. He is gratefully married to Karen and has two children, Jim and Christiann, who have blessed them with six amazing grandchildren.

Isaac & Stacy Burke

Youth Leaders

Isaac and Stacy joined the RiverSong Church staff in January of 2017 and serve as the leaders of our One Encounter youth group.  They have been volunteers with the RSC youth since 2006.  Their desire is to see the youth be empowered by relationship, family, and the knowing of who they are in Christ. They believe in the importance of unity within the generations—that the adults can learn from and be ministered to by the youth just as adults pour into and teach the younger generation. They know that this current generation of teens has the ability to show the power and presence of Jesus to the world like it has never seen before.  Isaac and Stacy were married in August of 2012 and share their home with their two dogs, Russell and Brendal.
