ABOUT JORDAN RIVER CHURCH
Jordan River Church was founded in August of 2019 by David and Jess Natali. Having been pastors in Carmel for 10 years prior, David and Jess started JRC at the Lord's instruction to provide a safe and green pasture for the sheep of our flock to grow and flourish, nourished by the Word of God and the Holy Spirit. The Natali's are also the founders of the School of Moses and Turning Point Ministries.
MULTIPLE HOUSE CHURCH CAMPUSES
When preparing for the launch of Jordan River, God spoke to Pastor David and said "Have multiple home campuses ASAP." To facilitate this, David and Jess handpicked a group of anointed, loving, and genuine pastors to assist them in shepherding the church. Currently, JRC has 4 different house campuses held in our pastors homes, all located in Carmel or the surrounding area. House campuses meet the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sunday of each month (see below for details).
ASSIGNMENT AND PURPOSE IN EVERY SUNDAY
Just as Kenneth Hagin teaches in Plans, Purposes and Pursuits, we believe that every meeting we hold ought to have a defined purpose from God and hold to that purpose. We believe in and implement a structure that clearly lays out the assignment and purpose in every Sunday.
In October of 2019, the Lord gave Pastor David Natali four words as an outline for the structure of Jordan River Church:
Coupling these words with the imagery of the Four Rivers in the Garden of Eden, which God gave as inspiration for JRC at its inception, and the instruction from God to have several home campuses and house pastors, God has given us a church blueprint that takes these words at face value and uses them as an outline for our monthly service plan.
WHAT DO OUR SERVICES LOOK LIKE?
Every month our services follow a rotation according to which week of the month it is. This schedule lets you know the exact assignment and purpose of each Sunday and precisely what to expect when we come together:
The first Sunday of the month is our Corporate service-
Held at the 502 East Event Centre in Carmel, IN, every first Sunday we all come together for church! This service might include a message from one of our pastors, worship, or something different entirely; but the important thing is that we're all in one place in one accord on these days.
The second Sunday of the month is for Worship-
Each home campus meets individually for the sole purpose of worshiping the Lord together and allowing the Spirit of God to move as He wills.
The third Sunday of the month is for Fellowship-
This week is for gathering together and enjoying the company of fellow believers! Each home campus hosts a get-together for food, fun, and fellowship. Bring a pitch-in dish to whichever house church you'll be attending! (Sign up to be plugged into our house campuses here)
The fourth Sunday of the month is for Teaching-
Each of our pastors teach a message from the Word of God at their home campuses.
If there is a fifth Sunday in the month, we do not host service that week but instead encourage everyone to spend time with the Lord however you are led at home.
