Senior Pastor

Dr. Dean, founder of Riverside Baptist Church, and his wife have served together for over 52 years. He is a graduate of Bob Jones University and has earned the Bachelor of Divinity, Master of Theology, and Doctor of Ministry degrees.

The pulpit ministry is concentrated on Bible exposition in a "traditional" form of worship.




Assistant Pastor

Michael Stevens and his family came to Riverside  in January of 2017. He also serves as the Youth Pastor. He has been faithfully serving in ministry since 2002. He and his wife Sarah met at Pensacola Christian College. They served the Lord in full-time missions in Eastern Europe working predominately with the Gypsy people. 


Missionary of the Week

Brant & Maylou Holladay


After serving over 50 years with Baptist International Missions, Inc., Bro. Holladay served after retirement in 2013 as coordi-nator of the Eurasia Bible Ministry, distri-buting over 2 million Bibles in at least 27 different languages. Faithful local partners  who speak the language and can cross borders that most American missionaries cannot, served with them.~ The Lord has provided an opportunity for the Holladays to expand the scope of this kind of Bible ministry through Biblical Ministries Worldwide, still in partnership with “local soldiers” who can reach people groups which they cannot.  Pray for the Holladays as they serve the Lord in this ministry.
