About River of Life Discount Christian Bookstore

About Us

In today's day and age, where all music and other Christian media has transitioned into the era of the internet, we at the River of Life have a vision and a desire to preserve the personal connections that have seemingly been lost with the times.

We are a family run Internet bookstore based in northern New Jersey, and we have over 20 years of experience in the Christian market. Starting our web-based store in 1999, we've used our desire to share the love of Christ, along with our passion of music, to run a store that thrives upon relationships within the Christian community. We strive to provide the widest assortment of worship and other Spirit-filled music and media at a discount, and will do nothing short of our best to help you find what you need.

Who We Are

   The Perna FamilyThe River of Life bookstore is owned and operated by the Perna family, who live in Warren County, New Jersey. Beginning their journey in music ministry with a physical bookstore, Vince and Becky Perna have over 20 years of experience in the industry. Since the transition from a storefront to an Internet business, they have made connections with customers and partners all around the world. Their ambition to spread relations in Christian society also applies to their local community. Vince is the worship leader at the family's church, Vineyard Assembly of God, as well as being on the Church Board as a deacon. Becky is the Secretary/Bookkeeper of the Church, and is also involved with local soup kitchen and food pantry outreaches.
