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.



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!”

We are a church located in West Baton Rouge Parish Louisiana.  This account is so we can reach our Baton Rouge community.  We have many families displaced and in need of basic needs.  We hope to reach others, share Jesus, and give them supplies needed.  We will use funds to give families food, cleaning supplies, clothes, and other necessities. This is a secure way to help the 2016 Louisiana Flood Refief Effort.  Thank you for your donations to our community.Pastor Butch and Susan LaBauve
