J. Sean Gardiner

I have been attending Riverview with my family since 2015 and came on staff in June of 2017.  I have been in various types of ministry for over 27 years.  God has allowed me to serve in Missouri, Kansas, Colorado and now here in Minnesota. I have a Masters in Religious Studies from Indiana Wesleyan University.  My passion is to share the love of Christ through the way that I live and serve. (1 Peter 4:10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.)  I am blessed to have my wife and three daughters alongside me in ministry.


I enjoy spending time with my family as well as drawing, wood working, spending time outdoors and drinking coffee, so come by Lifehouse coffee (The churches coffee shop) sometime and have a cup of coffee with me.  (I might even buy yours.)
