Pastors Shane and Hannah Holcomb have been married for 18 years, they have four amazing children: Makayley, James, Levi and Julianna. 


They have been in ministry for 22 years and have served in multiple areas. 

Worship and a pursuit of the presence of God is a strong passion of theirs. Combining music and the prophetic is a key factor in their ministry. Being both worship pastors and teaching pastors has given them an insight into the balance between passion for the arts and a foundation in the Word. Everything always comes back to Jesus. 


Their pastoring style is very family driven, and compassion is at the center of who they are and how they lead. 

Pastor Hannah is also the worship pastor at The River and the administrator. 

Pastor Shane is also the youth pastor and the Tech director.
