Our Story

A History of River of Life

After 23 years in Jacksonville, North Carolina, Pastors Chris and Miriam Phillips launched the Northern Virginia campus of River of Life Church on Easter weekend in 2015.  Because our North Carolina location serves military families from Camp Lejeune and New River Air Station, we regularly said goodbye to men and women as they received orders to Quantico. During a season of prayer, God made it clear that we should be moving in the same direction and begin a second location here, to continue our ministry to these service men and women and beyond.

Expanding the vision...

As we continue to bring the Gospel to the Northern Virginia area we have moved from our humble beginnings at the Potomac Mills Middle School.

We currently meet at 17650 Possum Point Road in Dumfries.

Where we are headed...

In November of 2020, Pastors Mason and Nanette Phillips were set in as the lead site pastors and we are excited to expand on the work that the Lord has called us to in this community.
