Our Mission: To see the lost saved, the sick healed, the oppressed set free, and to equip the people of God to do the works of Jesus, changing lives one soul at a time.
We are a family of people who's lives have been radically changed through Christ and the work of the cross. This incredible experience is what propels us forward to be a shinning light in the midst of a darkened world.
We have been impacting the lives of people all over the world for over a quarter of a century. Starting out in evangelistic work in 1988, Pastor John and his wife Lori's call to serve the Lord ultimately reached global impact. Eleven years later, God gave pastor John a vision and told him to start a church as he was on an airplane, flying back after holding evangelistic meetings in South Africa. In 2000, Rivers of Life Christian Center became a new branch of the ministry.
Since that time, God has been faithful and has increased the fruitfulness of the ministry, leading to a brand new facility being completed in 2010 in the Green Bay/DePere, WI area. Many outreach ministries flow throughout the world today through Rivers of Life.
We believe that the Jesus revealed in scripture is still the same today and that we, as believers, need not compromise nor water down the word of our glorious God, but by faith believe to see the same glory of God revealed in our present age. (John 11:40)
This story is still unfolding today as we continue to leave a footprint on the world, carrying out the great commision and reaching lives for Jesus. We would love to welcome you to be a part of our family and join us on this great journey!
