At the age of Seventeen God saved me and very shortly after that gave me a desire to share His word. When I turned eighteen, I formally answered the call to the carry the Gospel of Christ everywhere I went. For the next five years I served the Kingdom as an Evangelist and Youth Pastor. At the age of 23 I pastored my first church. At 25 God placed me at Unity Covenant Church of West Fork AR. I served Unity for over 22 years. I have now entered into what I call my faith Journey. God has called me to invest in Pastors and Church leaders, to ignite passion once again into the body of Christ. On January 3rd of 2021 God opened a new chapter in my life by placing me as the Lead Pastor of River of Life Fellowship. I am truly excited to see what God does in this new chapter of my Life.
River of Life Fellowship is blessed to have Bro. and Sis. E.L. Redding as our Associate Pastors.
Bro. Redding is an ordained minister with the Pentecostal Church of God, and has served in many areas of leadership within the fellowship, including leading the Arkansas District Pentecostal Church of God as Bishop. They have pastored, as well as established new churches over the years of their ministry.
The Reddings' love for the Lord is evident in all they say and do. The deep love they have for the Lord and for people can be seen in their daily living.
Israel and Talitha became ROLF's H2O Youth Leaders in 2019. They have a great love for students and a real passion to see them have a real relationship with Jesus Christ!
As the grandson of Clyde and Vida Curry, the founding pastors of ROLF, Israel has a wonderful, Pentecostal heritage. He and Talitha have a real love for the Lord and a desire to be used by Him to touch the lives of young people. They have been married for 4 years and are excited about this opportunity to lead the youth of ROLF!
