Pastor Marcus was born-again at the age of 21. Soon after, His life was transformed when he was filled with the Holy Spirit at a youth camp. He attended Bible School a few years after he married Pastor Melina. He founded The River Church in 2007. He preaches the Word in the power of the spirit and enjoys seeing the Word change lives and restore families. His heart is to help people walk out the plan of God for their lives.
Pastor Melina grew up attending Word of Faith meetings where she learned the value of hearing the Word preached and doing what the Bible says. She has a love for the local church. She enjoys seeing people become doers of the Word and walk in what is rightfully theirs as joint heirs of Christ. She assists Pastor Marcus with the church and teaches regularly.
