Pastor Joe and Jaclyn


Are you looking for a new community in the Post Falls Area?


The River Church is a community of believers that seek to co-labor with the Holy Spirit in all areas of our lives.  It is our goal for our community to be reached through the power of His love and prayer.  We believe we are commissioned to do His work, by going out and making disciples.  We are challenged to meet people where they are at and serve people in such way that shows them the love and power of Jesus.

Pastor Joe and Jaclyn Filancia are the Lead Pastors at The River Church AG, located in Post Falls, Idaho. Joe is a licensed minister with the Assemblies of God in the Northwest Network and maintains an active involvement with local area ministers.

His wife, Jaclyn, directs The River MC, which is an accredited Master’s Commission program. Under the covering of the national network, they implemented this discipleship school together and it is successfully in its fifth year of operation. Jaclyn is also the lead worship pastor at TRC and is co-laboring with Christ to see teams of worshipers arise!

They lead by example as they encourage the congregation and students to be responsible stewards of time and energy in order to advance The Kingdom.

After Evangel University Joe met Jaclyn in Juneau, Alaska while interning at Juneau Christian Center AG under Presbyter Mike Rose. While it was evident that God was calling each of them into the five fold, it also became apparent that He had also placed them together for a specific reason – to minister as a team. After dating for three years, they were married and took a position as youth pastors under pastor Jim Sinclair, Church on the Move AG in Plains, Montana. This year, they celebrated 16 years of marriage.

Joe and Jaclyn have been involved in two church plants [Texas and Washington] and eventually pioneered Searchlight Fellowship on the Idaho/Washington border. In the fall of 2011, Searchlight successfully merged with Falls Christian Assembly, and the blending of these two fellowships resulted in a new identity, which is now The River Church. It is exciting to see how God is leading His church in these faith-filled harvest days!
