ALL IN is more than just a building—
ALL IN is about reaching people.

Expand Our Campus

Our new 1,250+ seat Worship Center will provide a meaningful environment for worship and outreach, with state of the art technology and room to grow. As we invite more of our neighbors, friends and family to encounter the gospel, we’re praying that God opens doors to allow us to serve thousands of families across the Tidewater area in years to come.

Engage the Next Generation

Once the new 50,000 sq. ft. expansion is complete we will have the opportunity to utilize the existing facility for our growing children and student ministries. Our vision is to look past the here and now by investing in the future. We will provide inviting spaces for small groups and relational ministry that engages generations to come with the hope and truth found in God’s Word.

Embrace Our Community

ALL IN will be the catalyst for us to strengthen and broaden our outreach, so that Jesus can transform lives.  Our community is where we step out into a broken world that may not know us, but needs the Jesus who lives within us. We will have increased opportunities for ministry through outreach programs such as Oscar Smith High School, Portlock Primary, and other schools and community programs when we have daily access to our gymnasium and commercial kitchen.

Equip to Multiply

As we read Jesus’ parting words to His followers here on earth in Acts 1:8, we cannot overlook that He points us beyond the areas where we live and work.  He takes us from our neighborhood to our nation and “to the ends of the earth”. We envision our expanded campus as a hub for equipping and developing leaders to make disciples both in the Tidewater area and in new church plants across our country and the world.

Growing our campus

Through a new worship center, we will be able to create an inviting environment for gospel-centered worship and Biblical teaching.

Intentionally designed for welcoming guests and meeting with friends, our lobby will be a great place to share a cup of coffee, build relationships and find out more about River Oak ministries.

Pray for God to Work...

  • that you and your family will grow in faith, as we trust God to work through us.

Commit to Giving Generously...

  • even sacrificially to ALL IN, taking the next step in your giving for the next 36 months.
  • and remember that God can do the impossible. Ask God to work through your generosity to make an eternal impact.
