Moreover, you shall choose able men from all the people - God-fearing men of truth who hate unjust gain - and place them over thousands, hundreds, fifties, and tens, to be their rulers. Exodus 18:21 AMP
The River School of Government (RSG) has been founded as a result of the corruption we see in the current government system and the need to raise up godly individuals with personal and public integrity to boldly take up positions of leadership in our nation. For hundreds of years the Constitution of the United States of America, the supreme law of the land, has stood as a bulwark of righteousness, to protect the rights of its citizens. However, there have been attacks, from many quarters, all designed to neutralize the Constitution and to progressively remove citizen's rights.
There is a great need to raise up individuals who will run for office in the United States of America, from the very bottom all the way to the highest levels of government, who will honor and stand up for both the integrity of the Consitutiton and the integrity of God's Word. If we are going to see America changed for the good, we have to get back to her founding principles, which were laid out by the founding fathers at her inciopetion. This is the heart and soul and primary foucs of the River School of Government.
The River School of Government will work to expose the enemies of our sovereignty and Constitution. The student will be trained in every area of governmental leadership and responsibility, and upon successful graduation will be entrusted with specific positions, tasks and responsibilities, each according to their ability and calling. The River School of Government's goal is not to raise up career politicians, who will abuse their position for personal gain or for personal power, but to raise up people who will govern according to solid godly principles and who will continue to faithfully defend the individual rights and freedoms that are guaranteed by both the Constitution and God's Word.
The River School of Government is non-partisan and has one objective - to raise up people in government, who are armed with a solid foundation in the Constitution, God's Holy Word, and the power of the Holy Spirit - to take America back! We believe that the Lord will help us to accomplish this goal of taking America back, with a well-defined four, eight, twelve, sixteen, and twenty-year plan, springing out of a third Great Awakening!

People of integrity and people of character, solidly grounded in the Word of God, is what we must have in this nation's political arena. If you have a burning desire to effect a change in the political course of this nation, the River School of Government is for you! Our staff and faculty are ready to help you succeed in running with the Heavenly Vision. America must have a change, bringing it back to the foundation of its godly heritage. To do this, bold men and women must step out from behind the cloak of obscurity and raise their voices, allowing God to establish their platform and place them in leadership and government positions at civic, state, and national levels. Are you ready to accept the challenge?

a Word from the Head Insructor
Everyone is called by God. If you feel called to effect change in government, whether inside or outside an elected office, I want to welcome and encourage you to step into the plan and purpose that He has for you by coming to the River School of Government. If you are still wondering what God has for you or if you aren’t sure, but you feel a burden for reaching the nation’s leaders, I encourage you to attend RSG to find out. RSG was birthed with the vision of seeing men and women, full of and led by the Holy Ghost, as a voice of righteousness in the nation. RSG will give you the chance to excel and expand into the political field, whether in office or by reaching out to those in office.
The Lord showed me that He is raising up a generation of Spirit-filled believers that have a servant’s heart for America. They will be a voice for this generation! They will have direct influence everywhere from local political offices all the way to the White House! This generation will affect the lives of all those involved in every facet of the political realm!
At RSG you will receive instruction from phenomenal speakers, many of whom you would not be able to hear from in traditional schools. Speakers will include local, state, and federal officials as well as those from governmental organizations, nongovernmental groups, and activists. You will learn what God intended for America when He gave our Forefathers the basis of the Constitution of this great nation and so much more. I want to challenge you to attend RSG and see where God is going to take you in life.
