Meet Pastor Eddie & Beth Diaz
PastorEddie and Beth’s passion is to encourage people to have a
personal encounter with God, through Jesus Christ, and to help
them discover their freedom and identity in Him.
He and Beth have three grown children, two daughter-in-laws and
one son-in-law. Pastor Eddie and Beth strive to provide a fun,
honest and peaceful home, where everyone is encouraged to share
their personal truth and receive God’s unchanging truth in love.

Some of their favorite things are spending time with their kids,
eating dark chocolate (Eddie), eating sunflower seeds (Beth), smoking meat
on the grill, gardening, wood working, playing with their Cane Corso Rayne.

 A Little Bit of History
Old River Assembly of God was established November 8, 1945 and has been a lighthouse to our community since the first day.  We have a rich history, but what we are most excited about is our future.  Pictures of our history can be found on the Old River Assembly of God Facebook Page.  A good one to watch is in the video section called “Through The Years.”  
Below are 3 videos with pictures of our history from 1945 to 2005.  They are linked to our Facebook page, so you will need Facebook open to view. We’ve come a long way since 1945!
“Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give;
not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
2 Corinthians 9:7

Sunday Discipleship
To give each member an opportunity to grow in God’s word in a smaller setting and become more involved and united as they study and discuss God’s word. We have a Sunday School option for each age group.
We have three adult classes from which to choose:
Armor Bearers: Teacher Sherrie Beaman: This is an in depth study of the word, including original Hebrew word meanings, emphasis on the tie between Old and New Testaments, and a fresh word every Sunday. Meets in the first classroom to the right off the foyer, Sunday @ 9:35 AM.
Discussion Class: Teacher Lee Gigout: You will leave this class exhorted and encouraged to continue in your faith. Part preaching, part teaching, Bro. Lee delivers a timely word for you. Enter their classroom through the first glass door nearest County Line Rd.  Every Sunday at 9:30 AM.
Young Adult:  Teacher Dustin Robinson: No subject is to be avoided in this vibrant and fun discussion class. Students are encouraged and challenged as they lead and listen to discussions of relevant issues for their lives. Meets in the fellowship hall, every Sunday @ 9:45 AM.
Generational Ministry Too!
Our teachers are passionate about Jesus and love the next generation of kids, youth and young adults. There is a class for every age, nursery through high school. The classes are small and this is a great place to meet new friends and find “your place” at Old River Assembly!
World and U.S. Missions
Missions is the heart of God. What is good news if we keep it to ourselves? Old River Assembly loves missions. We currently support 49 missionaries on a monthly basis. They serve around the world and in the US.  That’s not our glory – but HIS!  We also love our annual missions banquet and a missions trip as often as the Lord allows!  
National Day of Prayer Worship Church Website Banner
Worship Team
God-honoring worship is something we strive for.  Our music style is a mix of contemporary and traditional.  We love a foot stomping southern gospel tune followed by the latest Hillsong worship set.  We try to please the whole congregation, but ultimately it’s God’s pleasure we are seeking.

Adult Ministries

Men’s Ministry

We are men who are pursuing God by serving the church and building a brotherhood of believers. We meet the last Tuesday each month @ 7:00 PM and would love to have you join us.  Charles McIntosh leads our men’s ministry.  


Heart to Heart Women’s Ministry

A place where women of all ages come together to fellowship & encourage one another. The monthly meeting always includes a time of prayer over our needs and a word from the Lord. The ladies also enjoy game night and ladies’ nights out occasionally throughout the year.

Elder Fire Fellowship

The largest mission field in America isn’t what you would expect. It isn’t youth or even kids. The largest mission field in America is those 50+. Elder Fire is a ministry for those 50+ and we hope you will join us during our special times of fellowship.
They usually meet the second Tuesday of the month. Potluck and a guest speaker are often on schedule, but they mix it up with restaurant trips and games as well. Jonell Buckels and Paula Gigout lead this thriving ministry.

Children Ministries
Children’s Church
Purpose: Old River Children’s Church is Christ Centered & Christ Focused. It is a place of excitement & Joy, where children learn Bible truths in an environment that is both educational and entertaining.
Our goal is to PREPARE children to live their entire life for Jesus, rather than REPAIR them later in life. We want the kids in our community to come to the Fountain, and be blessed.
Youth Ministries
Purpose: Our purpose is to try to create an atmosphere each week where teens can come, and feel safe to be who God created them to be. It is also a place here they can be encouraged and charged to continue in a world that confronts them daily with tough challenges.
BGMC – Challenging kids to Reach the World
Purpose: To give boys and girls, moms and dads, friends and family an opportunity to give every month their “change” to change the world. BGMC is touching every area of the world by supplying our missionaries with the supplies and tools they need to reach out to the lost through evangelism and discipleship.
Royal Rangers
Purpose: To provide Christlike character formation and servant leadership development for boys and young men in a highly relational and fun environment. To evangelize, equip, and empower the next generation of Christlike men and lifelong servant leaders.
We need leaders in all age groups. We need born again, blood bought spirit filled Men of God who are willing to step out of their comfort zone and help mentor boys.
Mpact Girl’s Ministries
Purpose: Mpact Girls Clubs is a program for winning girls to Jesus Christ through love and acceptance. Mpact Girls Clubs provides an environment of support and accountability while helping girls to develop their gifts and abilities. In addition, girls build lifelong relationships with mentors who encourage girls to be spiritual leaders.
In short it is a girl’s ministry where girls can make friends, learn about Jesus, and be a part of a club
