The heart of River Ministries International is souls. We have a burning passion to reach the nations. As of now, we are sending missionaries to Cambodia to start a church plant there. We are very excited to see God move in and through out this nation. We have seen great wonders, signs, and miracles in Cambodia and are believing that we will continue to. If you are interested in missions or you have some questions to ask us please don’t hesitate to contact our offices at (225) 678-7777. We would love to talk to you about your interest and get you connected.



Come check out Transformed Youth, led by Youth Pastors Kade & Shelbi Loupe. The reason we are called Transformed Youth is because we are constantly changing and evolving into what God has called us to be! We want to teach teens to read their Bible, share God’s word, and live a holy life. We not only have an awesome time of worship, by the youth band, and teaching, but we also do fun activities! We have lock-in’s, movie nights, bowling nights, and many more activities! This youth group serves ages 12-19 every Friday from 6:30pm-9:30pm. Please talk to a youth member, youth leader, or call the office for more information.



The vision of God for RMI is to preach the Good News Gospel of Jesus Christ local, regional, national, and international. (Acts 1:8) Pastor and teach men, women, and children how to be biblically victorious in every facet of life. Prepare and disciple the saints for the work of the ministry. Equip them to be Proof – Providers that Jesus Christ is alive today. Plant “Miracle Workers” in the harvest fields of the world to gather souls of men that were purchased 2000 years ago by Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary and train them to preach, pastor, prepare and plant. Preach – Community The Spirit of the Lord is upon RMI because the Lord has anointed Pastors Butch and Susan LaBauve to preach the Gospel to the poor “carnal”, to heal the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captive, recovery of sight to the blind, and to set at liberty those who are oppressed. To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. (Luke 4:18 – 19) RMI is called to present Jesus Christ alive to the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Area and surrounding cities. This is being accomplished by internet, literature, advertisement, television, radio, outreaches, personal relationships, and Miracle Gatherings. Pastor – Congregation RMI Miracle Gatherings are multi – cultural, cross – denominational, and every aged, Word based services. “Little children” (John 2:12) are being taught to yield and shape their will to God, to be confident of “sins forgiven,” “doers of the Word,” and understand “water baptism” and the “Lord’s supper.” These are submitted to weekly services and pastoral oversight, and authority. Prepare – Committed RMI is disciplining and training “young men” (1John 2:13-14) to renew their minds and build and shape values. This portion of our fellowship has overcome the evil one in personal habits and bondages, offense free and filled with the Holy Spirit. They are disciples of the Word, committed to daily Word studies, prayer, giving, and financial freedom. Plant – Core Spiritual leaders who are led by the Spirit and flow consistently in the fruits and gifts of the Spirit. Ministers who chose to be chosen (John 15:16) to do the “Greater Works Ministry.” (John 14:12) This mature group of people are “Fathers” (1 John 2:14) reproducing and raising children in the Lord. This elect group is influenced by mostly Apostles, Prophets, and teaching ministries. Servants that excel “in giving their knowledge to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” (2 Timothy 2:2) Men and women committed to the “household of faith,” missions, and house to house relationships.



I love my wife Susan, my three children, I work hard, and I pay all of my bills.  I love a good Kombucha!  (Google it, you’ll like it!)  Texas de Brazil is my favorite restaurant.  Andrew Zimmern is my eatery friend “I will eat anything!”,  and I love to get away and jerk fish lips!  I’m an LSU Graduate (Geaux Tigers!), Minister’s Training Institute graduate, Doctorate in Christian Theology from International Miracle Institute, Pensacola, Florida.  Passed the test of  “the spirit of this world’s” best shot to alienate me from Jesus – the designer of God’s world.I am a native of Plaquemine, Louisiana and have only lived in four homes in my entire life.   Settled . . . and don’t plan on moving anytime soon – seemingly small town guy with a great international vision.  In my many travels, I realize this world is really not that big, it is within the reach of the local church.  I love the world. – John 3:16.

I personally am presently participating in the gospel’s project to farm the field of men’s hearts in the nations.  It’s conception begins at the RIVER!  Here at the River, people are “born” into and gather in the charged waters of liquid diamond.  The River creates an atmosphere and climate for the water of God’s unfailing word to dance like music in the hearts of believers.  This pre-denominational unique assembly hasn’t ever experienced a regular, run of the mill, status-quo church service.  We don’t plan them.  We are presently experiencing REVIVAL – the supernatural mechanics of Heaven’s best!

I AM THE RIVER, and if you want to experience Jesus alive and know me, partnership with us in one of our proof-providing miracle gatherings.  My promise to you – the unhindered, divine presence of God will transform your life permanently!

Jesus and The River loves you!”
