Lead Pastor Ronke
We are passionate about the word of the Lord in Matthew 25:34-40. The best way of making God known in the community is to show love and care to the people irrespective of their race, social position or religious affiliation. We have dedicated welfare team and volunteers , who are always willing to bring joy and smiles to the faces of the people in the community. All our community activities can be viewed on www.riversofjoyinitiatives.org
Prayer was instituted by God as the means of communing with Him. Prayer is His idea, not ours. Consequently, it is only logical that we come to God on His terms, not ours. We will devote ourselves to prayer (Acts2:42) for God to do great and mighty things in the ministry and to bring revival to the community.
We believe that the root of passionate prayer is based on the knowledge of who God is; His ways and His words.
Leading people into the presence of the Lord in spirit and in truth. This is a ministry that is built on a foundation of prayer, fasting , knowledge of the word , right attitude and team effort . Based on Psalm 133:1, we believe that our core value of unity in ministry will create an atmosphere of God’s presence and notable signs and wonders.
GREAT COMMISSION / MEN OF PURPOSE
We are all called to fulfil the Great Commission. Christians are not just to be disciples but are tasked to make disciples. (Matthew 28:19) We are saved by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8-10) and this comes with responsibility of reaching out to others. This assignment is a must for all believers in Rivers of Joy.
Men of Purpose – The vision is to make men feel inspired, empowered and be educated about what it means to be a man of God.
Women of Worth
This is the Women’s ministry of the church. The main purpose is to reach out, empower the women in the church and build them up in the knowledge and ways of the Lord. Seminars and Conferences will be organised from time to time to equip the women in becoming women of substance and to grow in the knowledge of God.
MEDIA & SOUND MINISTRY
Though behind the scenes, but the result of church media ministry is highly visible, making first impressions and helping to sustain relationships by communicating church messages and activities to members and the community at large.
To have a culture that embraces reaching young people ; character transforming teachings; career development programmes; prepare them to be role model; make impact in the society and disciple them for Christ.
We have a framework to help children to learn at each stage of their development. As they grow, their understanding of foundational truth grows with them. Their lessons are Christ – centred, where attributes of God (I.e holiness, righteousness, mercy, grace etc) are being considered through different strategic learning methods.
FOLLOW UP/VISITATION MINISTRY
Relationship is key to church unity and growth. We must be seen to be united, love one another as commanded by the word of God.”A new commandment l give you: Love one another, as l have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another”. John 13:34-35.c
