Mike is the senior pastor of RiverGate Church, author, international conference speaker, and worship leader. He was the producer and host of the award winning show "For The Family". MIchael is also a team leader and advisory member for Randy Clark's Global Awakening, and has been in ministry for forty years. He has recently authored "The Adventure of Supernatural Discovery." Although he had been in the moves of the Holy Spirit during the past few decades along side such as John Wimber, nothing prepared him for what happened to him on a ministry trip in Brazil. Several encounters with the reality of the fire and power of God and being taken to the presence of the Father in Heaven has changed the course and direction of his life and ministry forever. One of the remarkable results of these encounters has been the release of a gifting for impartation, healing and empowerment.
“Since my supernatural encounters with the God, I have been a part of more supernatural ministry and I have witnessed the power of God in greater ways than I had seen during the first 30 years of ministry combined.”
Cherrie pastors along side of her husband, Mike and is a certified Life and Excutive Coach and founder of Rivergate Family Counseling Resource Center. She has recently authored a book titled "Unlimited Access." She entered the ministry at the age of 17. She is an international speaker and walks in the reality of revelation and empowerment. Her experience in the world of modeling, commercials, beauty pageants, working with Fortune 500 companies and entertainers, is nothing in comparison to the revelation and experiences that she has been given by the Holy Spirit. By choosing to give her life to the call of God, she has been used to transform countless lives with the reality of revelatory impartation and healing for the whole person.
She is a team leader and advisor for Global Awakening. She teaches with passion and understanding that empowers those who hear with fresh revelation and encouragement. She is also a unique artist whose paintings have been used in the development of the ministry, “Hope Makes A Difference.” To feed children and to provide clean water. Mike and Cherrie both share a passion of empowering the church to live a life of supernatural wonder.
