Senior Minister

David Mackey

David Mackey has served as a Senior Minister at Riverside Christian Church since 1997.  The thing he loves most about Riverside Christian Church is the big heart for God’s mission.  He says, "The church has a wonderful desire to carry out the mission God has for His church and pulls together to get it done!"

He enjoys preaching, ministering to others through small groups and ministries in our community. David holds a Master of Ministry degree from Kentucky Christian University.  Prior to going into the ministry, David was a registered architect in Missouri and Colorado. He and his wife Mary live in Prairie Home and have 5 grown children and 7 grandchildren.

Staff Person 2

Associate Minister

Steve Hagemeyer

Steve Hagemeyer has spent almost 20 years in ministry, first as a campus minister at the Christian Campus House in Columbia, MO, then as a missionary in West Africa with Pioneer Bible Translators. He received his undergraduate degree in Christian Ministry from St. Louis Christian College, and recently completed a master’s degree in Intercultural Studies from Johnson University. Steve serves RCC part-time overseeing small groups, missions, and membership while continuing his translation work remotely with Pioneer Bible Translators. He considers it a privilege to come alongside David and the RCC team to serve the body of Christ and the Boonville area.  Steve and his wife Alésha live in Prairie Home and have four children in high school, college, and beyond.

Student Ministers

DJ & Melissa Leverton

After spending 19 years in education as a teacher, coach, and administrator, DJ is currently a loan officer for Veterans United in Columbia. Melissa is teaching her 28th year at the secondary and college levels and is working on a Doctorate degree in Education from Evangel University in Springfield. They enjoy working with students and count it a privilege to get to speak the truth of God's Word into their lives. It is their hope to inspire those young people to find Jesus, accept His free gift of salvation, and learn to serve Him for the rest of their lives.

DJ and Melissa have two grown children, Jake and Mackenzie, who live in Columbia and Springfield respectively. For fun, they follow sports, go camping, and travel together and with family.
