Chris Goeppner – 2019 Alumnus of the Year DON LOUGH, JR. ('84)

Word of Life Bible Institute alumni all over the world have embraced the challenge of reaching this generation with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As a ministry, we take great joy in seeing students launched from our campuses who, regardless of where they serve, are committed to fulfill their primary role as ambassadors for Jesus Christ. Each year, we single out an alumnus to honor and, more importantly, to present to you as a prime example of what God can do in and through a life who is yielded to Him. Chris Goeppner, this year’s Alumnus of the Year, graduated from Word of Life Bible Institute in 1991 and later attended Palm Beach Atlantic University. He married Penny, the love of his life, in 1999. In 2008, he and Penny adopted their two sons, Roman and Jadon, from Siberia. After serving for 20 years in sunny Florida, he and his family responded to God’s call to reach people for Christ in New England. What began in their living room with eight people has emerged today as the vibrant Riverbank Church meeting in two loca- tions…White River Junction, Vermont and Claremont, New Hampshire, with another location coming soon in St. Johnsbury,



Vermont. He and his church family con- tinue to dream about expanding their reach throughout New England and around the world. The intent is for Riverbank to be a 21st century church reaching 21st century people. Our 2019 Alumnus of the Year has embraced the challenge of our Founder, Jack Wyrtzen, to reach his generation for Jesus Christ. CG@RIVERBANKCHURCH.COM RIVERBANKCHURCH.COM
