Pastors Corey and Rhonda Rice have been a part of River of Live Assembly of God since 2002. Both are natives of Minot North Dakota. Prior to coming on staff at River of Life as the Associate Pastor in December 2007, they spent seven years as traveling preachers.
In June 2014, Corey became the Lead Pastor. His pursuit as a pastor is to disciple and ground people in the word, and to have an encounter with God. So that through them, others can also encounter God.
The Rice's have three wonderful boys, two amazing daughters-in-law, and one marvelous granddaughter. As a family they enjoy camping and hanging out together.
