In 2009 a vision to restart an Assemblies of God Church in Medford was placed upon the hearts of the people of North Ridge Church Abbotsford. A small group got together and started seeking God in prayer. They would meet once a week in the church and ask God to direct their paths.God answered and soon they were having Friday services in the local coffee house. The church began to grow. The church soon outgrew the coffee house and moved to a bank, and started meeting on Sunday mornings.The church was starting to come together with a worship team, and a Pastor. The church was mainly younger families and a lot of kids. It soon became clear a Children’s Pastor was needed. God once again provided. Soon after the new Children’s Pastor was in place. The church moved into the current building on Broadway (Hwy 64).River of Hope has continued to grow, and experience God’s blessings. One of the dreams we had was to make a coffee bar that would support missions. Once again God provided what we needed to see this dream become a reality.River of Hope continues to dream and chase after God. We look forward to continuing to serve Him, and the city of Medford.
