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.
Austin Williams has served as Youth Minister at Riverside since 2019. One time a middle school English teacher himself, he now equips both middle and high school students in the Boonville and New Franklin area with God's Word. He is bi-vocational, and wholistically manages two farms in the Boonville area. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Language Arts/Secondary Education from Mizzou. While a student at Mizzou, he lived at the Christian Campus House and led life groups with an emphasis on discipleship.
Austin and his wife Kelli live in Boonville. They have one daughter, Tesni, who was born in July of 2019. They plan to live in a multi-generational household with both Kelli's parents and grandparents for many decades to come. When Austin's not managing a farm or teaching a youth group or hanging out with his extended family, you can probably find him recording a podcast. He hosts two podcasts: "Let Them Eat Grass" and "Amen!"
