André Roebert has been in ministry since 1991 when he joined a growing community church in King Williams Town in the Eastern Cape. Andre married Jenny in March 1992 and together they served first as Youth Pastors, and four years on became the assistants to the Senior Pastor and his wife.
In 1996 God started to birth a deep desire for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in both Andre and Jenny and they started Revival South Africa, an itinierant ministry that travelled from village to village throughout South Africa, out of which The River Church was birthed in 1998. Just two years later God led them into the first of many business ventures to come and a 55 000 square metre building was purchased that would become the Headquarters of the River Group.
Today Pastor Andre and Jenny are the CEO’s of the River Group, comprising of 47 different companies and ministries, touching the entire African continent with the gospel of Jesus Christ. With a multi million rand turnover annually, they have been able to stay focused on the call of God as the primary purpose of all they do. Today the group has over 500 staff members and is operational in many business centres around the nation.
A national network of churches has been established and daily television broadcasts reach millions of homes every day. Through these broadcasts, a partnership following of thousands around the world, as well as several web broadcasts are now literally taking the gospel to the ends of the earth.
With the group’s own print company, bookshop, media centre, churches, River Air Charter Service, three satellite channels, terrestrial broadcasts, multiple building investments, a satellite radio channel, The River Hotels Group, multiple associated ministries and a humanitarian aid division in full operation, they are able to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ both effectively and efficiently across the nations of the world. The River Group also has an USA office overseeing many of the international operations associated to the ministry.
