OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM


  • John Cox - Lead Pastor     

    John is married to the joy of his life, Daisy. They are both from Southern California and have three amazing kids, Jane, Brooke, and Jack. Jane and Brooke go to Fresno Christian School, and Jack is getting ready for the brave new world of pre-school!  In 2002, the Lord radically changed John’s life when he was both engaged to Daisy and followed the call to ministry. Before this, John received his degree in Journalism from the University of Nevada Reno and worked in the entertainment industry. As John and Daisy’s passion for ministry grew, John attended The Master’s Seminary (MDiv) and began working as a pastor with youth and young adults in Southern California. John then served as a Senior Pastor in the Carson-Tahoe area in Nevada, and North Carolina, before being called to Riverpark. John’s passion is to proclaim the Word of God without apology, lift high the name of Jesus in Worship, and watch Christ bring lasting change into the hearts of his people.  

  • George Posthumus - Teaching Pastor  

    George came to Riverpark in September of 1989. He and his wife Linda were married in 1974 and have three married children, Danielle, Jaime, and Chad, and twelve grandchildren. He is a graduate of Biola University (Bachelor of Music—1975) and a graduate of Talbot Theological Seminary (Master of Divinity—1979). Please note: Pastor George has a profound hearing loss. He is deaf in one ear and has very little hearing in the other. He uses unique hearing devices in order to carry on conversations, so please do not be surprised when he hands you a microphone when you talk to him.   

  • Joey Hull - Student Ministries Pastor  

    Joey joined the Riverpark staff in May 2006. He oversees student ministries working directly with our High School students. Joey and his wife Sam were married in 2004 and have four children: Quinton, Grace, Maxwell, and Gavin. He is a graduate of Fresno Pacific University (Bachelor of Arts in Physical Education, Minor in Mathematics, Single Subject Teaching Credential) and of Western Seminary (Master of Divinity).

  • Eben Sherwood - Group Life & Administration Pastor   

    Eben was married to Darcy, the love of his life, in 1972. They have two grown sons, Steven and Adam and four grandchildren by way of son Adam and his wife, Carrie. After graduating from Fresno, State Eben went into the insurance business and had an agency for 39 years. Eben and Darcy began attending Riverpark Bible Church in 1996 where they became members and began serving in the pre-school program. It was during that time Eben was called to lead an interdenominational Bible Study for men which he did for the next 14 years. Two years ago God opened a new door of opportunity to serve Christ’s beloved local church here at Riverpark. It has been Eben and Darcy’s desire to honor God and serve Him by building the body of Christ in every way possible. 

  • Michael Bohr - Worship & College Pastor    

    Mike likes his kung pao spicy. He and his wife Danielle came to Riverpark in 2003. They met at The Master’s College on the first day of school back in 1994, and he remembers exactly what Danielle was wearing when they met. They were “just friends" for four years and didn’t start dating until their senior year. They were married in 1998, and the rest is history! They have four kids Ethan, Ellie, Lucy, and Bryson and they all love Disneyland, watching movies, and snuggling. Mike studied music at The Master’s College and UCLA, and he has served as a worship pastor for almost 20 years. He has also shepherded the college ministry at Riverpark for the last three years. Mike’s passions include leading the people of God in worship, raising up the next generation of worshippers, and working on Volkswagens

  • Karen Drew - Director of Women's Groups & Communications

    Dwight & Karen Drew were both born and raised in the same Bay Area church! Fast-forward and happily married 44 years, they have two grown daughters (Heather & Stacy), and spend most of their free time with their four teenage grandkids (oldest at Cal Baptist College) fishing, camping, or helping shuttle back and forth to Clovis North activities. Karen has been serving in ministry since she was asked to play piano for the Big Creek Church services at the ripe old age of 14, and shows no signs of slowing down after 18 years on Riverpark staff! 

  • Deanna Allen- Director of Children's Ministries  

    Deanna has been a full time Director of Children’s Ministries in the Fresno/Clovis area for 11 years and at Riverpark Bible Church since March 2017. With a BA degree in Business Marketing/Management from Fresno Pacific University, children’s ministry is not what Deanna expected to be doing with her life! BUT GOD, whose plans are always perfect, directed her paths in a way that surprised and blessed her and her family by calling her into full time ministry. Deanna grew up in Puyallup, Washington in the shadow of the majestic Mount Rainier surrounded by daffodils and raspberries and moved to Fresno in 1989. Deanna is a grateful mom of three kids and one son in law – Haley lives in San Jose with her husband Kevin; Jonah is a senior at Fresno State; and Kenzie is a senior at Clovis North HS. Deanna believes kids are a priority in the Kingdom of God; they need to hear truth, are capable of applying truth to their own lives and are used by the Holy Spirit for the work of God right now! This should raise the bar of everything we do in Children’s Ministries!
