Welcome to the River church

River Global is a kingdom movement
reviving the church, reaching the world.

River Church

West Baton Rouge

River Ministries International is a genuine, life-giving, contemporary, Christian church with a local, regional and global vision. All people, of all ages, from every ethnic background, are important to us. Our passion is to reach the lost and hurting with the hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We offer biblical teachings on faith, family, healing, financial prosperity, freedom from sin, and living a victorious life. This is accomplished through weekly gatherings, home groups, outreaches, conferences, bible school and online media. We gather every Sunday at 10 am and Wednesday at 6:30 pm.


Senior pastors Butch and Susan LaBauve have been married 49 years, have 3 married children and 6 grandchildren who are all serving the Lord. They have preached the Gospel full time, locally and abroad, since 1999 and have an urgency to “tell the next generation about the power and greatness of God”. Their preaching and teaching is energetic, enthusiastic and led by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, through power preaching, prophetic utterances, and the demonstration and manifestation of signs, wonders and miracles.
