Meet our Team

A Mostly Volunteer Organization

Riverside is a Volunteer Oriented Church. It is led by elders and energized for mercy by deacons. Our many children's, youth, college and adult ministries are filled with volunteer leadership.  But we have a few strategically placed staff whose task is to nurture, encourage and equip. At Riverside, there is no hurry to get involved. But everyone who'd like to, can have a role to play. 

  • Pastor

    Zack Eswine (Rev. Dr.) has served as Riverside's Pastor since 2008. He and his wife Jessica cultivate life with three children. As a "pastor to global pastors" he is often known as Dr. Eswine. But at Riverside our pastor is just a dear friend we call "Zack." 

  • Administrator/Care Coordinator

    Mary Schawacker and her husband Rick have been with Riverside since its beginnings. Back then, Mary had just begun to follow Jesus. Now, Mary's know-how and servant's heart help all of us every day. 

  • Director of Children's Ministries

    Jen Hahn and her husband Steve have been at Riverside for a long while and have two children.  Jen brings her vibrant heart and steady patience to serve the many children of the Riverside Community and to coordinate a vast team of Riverside Volunteers. 

  • Director of Youth & College Ministries

    Katy Martin is a licensed Counselor who brings years of Young Life experience to the young people in the Riverside Community. She and her husband Jeremy  have three children. Along with volunteer team leaders, Jessica Eswine and Josh Lozano, Katy leads Riverside's Cross Training (Junior High), Oasis (Senior High) and Adulting 101 (College) ministries.
