Jack Holt: Senior Pastor / Joyce Holt: Women’s Ministries Director

Pastor Jack and Joyce started River of Life in October, 1982 in the auditorium of Jefferson High School in Federal Way, WA.  From there the meetings grew until the first church building was purchased on 216th street on the east hill of Kent. In 2002 we opened our doors to our current building — an amazing facility which provides state of the art equipment for our services, special events, meetings and classes.

Pastor Jack is the Senior Pastor at River of Life and preaches the word during most weekly services. Teaching the Word of God is his passion.  Pastor and Joyce love spending quality time together, their kids and grandkids, as well as ministering as a couple. Pastor Jack’s main hobby is maintaining his saltwater fish tank.

Joyce Holt is the director of our FLOURISH Women’s Ministries. Joyce is a key leader at River of Life Fellowship, who loves people and has a heart to reach the hurting and the lost.

Pastor Jack is a graduate of Rhema Bible Institute. Follow Joyce on [social icon=”facebook” url=”http://www.facebook.com/joyce.holt.37″] [social icon=”twitter” url=”http://twitter.com/joycelholt”]
