River of Love Leadership


Having been born and raised in Malta, Gordon-John Manche’ travelled and moved to UK and later on to USA to pursue a career in theatre arts, namely Ballet dancing.

On the 1st June 1995 Gordon-John had a radical experience where he surrendered his life to Christ Jesus, and was born-again (John 3).
A few years later in a special intimate time of prayer he was told by the Lord to attend full time Bible college at Rhema Bible Training Centre and Rhema Bible Church – Oklahoma. There he also served under his senior Pastor for some years.

After graduating from Bible College, served in the ministry of Rhema Bible Church for some years, he was directed by The Holy Spirit, that God wanted him to start a work in Malta.
He was ordained as a minister of The Gospel in 2006 under RMAI.
After much prayer and seeking The Lord, he was sent and had hands laid upon him by the Pastors of Rhema to go and accomplish that which God had called him to do.

After more than 16 years living abroad, Gordon-John was told by The Lord to move to Malta for a specific work that Jesus was calling him to do both in Malta and other nations.

After a short time in Malta, he met his wife on a local popular Television program where he was invited to talk about Jesus, The Bible and The Occult. Three different ministers of the Gospel, (who did not know each other) had prophesied to him by The Lord that he will meet his wife in Malta and also that she is Maltese! Indeed, this came to pass to the letter!
Shortly after meeting his wife, they started courting each other and were married after a year and a half.

Having been led by the Holy Spirit, they invited some people to meet with them for a prayer meeting and share Christ with them. This was another significant sign and confirmation from God that they were suppose to start this ministry since a few weeks before a man of God, Pastor Paul Goulet from Nevada – ICLV (USA), told Gordon-John, “Don’t be afraid to start the work that God has called you, even if you start with just 25 people”. Their first house meeting 25 people came, where every one present gave their life to Christ and God invaded that room with His Holy Spirit and power and many were healed, and others set free!

Gordon-John continued the work God had started and God kept sending them people hungry for God and to know about Jesus Christ & The Bible. It became common that many began to witness the mighty hand of God with many wonderful miracles and extraordinary healings in their meetings. (some of which are available on YouTube & other social media).

Shortly after they got married in April 2006, they both continued to seek the direction of The Lord with much prayer and fasting. In May 2006 ‘River of Love Christian Fellowship’ was born. In a few weeks the prayer meeting turned into a fellowship and as The Lord kept adding the numbers – it became a might move of the Holy Spirit and a main church in Malta and Gozo.

By the grace of The Lord & under His leading, Gordon-John Manche pioneered a brand-new Christian Community in Gozo in 2012.
On April 10th 2011, Gordon-John Manché earned his 'Masters in Theology' (B.A, M. The) In January 2013, Rev. Gordon-John received his 'Doctor in Pastoral Ministry Degree' (D. Min) from 'Life Christian University'.

They have undergone certain required courses and have been set apart after serving within the helps ministry. They were first ordained as Responsible Ones.  After a time of testing, having been found Spirit filled and loyal, they were set apart to be ordained as deacons ( 1 Thess. 5:12, 2 Tim. 2:1-2, 1 Tim. 5:21-22, 1 Timothy 3:8-13) under Nations for Christ Ministries International and River of Love Christian Fellowship.

"Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.
Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business." --- KJV

 ACTS 6:2-3

"...but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love."

Ephesians 4: 15-16
