Love Flows from the Father’s Heart

  • Community Outreach

    These are hands-on ministries when you are able to do the things Jesus did. They provide a service to our city and show God’s love in a practical way.




I want to thank you for taking the time to check out the RVC website. I want to introduce myself. I am Pastor Susan Henard. I am the Senior Leader here at River Valley Church of Tulare.

When I was just 13 years old, I met the boy of my dreams Greg Henard and a few years later we were married. We were married for 47 wonderful years before the Lord called Greg home. I have 2 sons, Michael and his wife Cindy and son Conner, Steven and his wife Melanie and their children Kaitlin and Kody. I also have 2 beautiful loving dogs named Ruby and Grace.

I was radically saved at the age of 38 and I have never been the same since Jesus came into my heart and life. In 2006 Greg and I became the Senior Leaders of the church. After Greg went home to be with Jesus in 2015 the church asked me to stay and continue as the Senior Pastor. I absolutely love my church and the calling God gave me for our city and surrounding communities. One thing you should know is that I love all people and my desire is for everyone to know Jesus. Going outside the 4 walls of the church is a passion of mine and therefore I am always looking for opportunities to reach out to our city. I love taking Jesus into the marketplace.

Some fun facts about me. I have lived in the same house since 1969 on 10 acres just down the road from my son Steven and his family. I love horses. I share that passion with my granddaughter Kaitlin. My grandson Kody and I love all the Marvel movies, so he is my movie buddy. I love the beach, taking my chair and sticking my toes in the sand with a good
book and a diet Pepsi. God has blessed me with good friends that I love to hang out with. I don’t like to cook. I love sitting on my patio with friends around my fire pit especially during the winter months. I really like watching Hallmark movies on a cold winter Saturday because they all have happy endings. I love love love a good cup of coffee. I love watching the kids in my church play sports. I try to attend as many of their games as I can. I love life and I am blessed to still get to do the things I love!
