HOW DID it ALL START?
River of Life Fellowship opened its doors to the public on September of 2003. It started as a Wednesday night prayer meeting which evolved into a Friday night small group meeting. The church's vision was given to our Lead Pastor, Bobby Dizon, during one of Morris Cerrullo's conference at Abundant Grace Community Church. This vision confirmed the direction of the group to proceed in the establishment of a small-group-based church. As the one small group grew, multiplication was needed, thus giving birth to two more small groups.
As the group's changed life began to affect the lives of their families and those around them in their workplaces and neighborhoods, the need grew for the addition of a corporate gathering. We outgrew the office suite that we were renting along University Drive in Edinburg.
We currently meet corporately on Sundays at 10:30 am in our church building located at 12212 North Rooth Road McAllen, TX 78504. By the end of 2011 we had 18 small groups that meet weekly in the McAllen, Edinburg, Mission and Pharr area. At present we have more than 50 small groups and the Lord keeps adding to this number. Our Sunday Celebration service averages between 250-300.
