Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.   Psalms 119:11

Our Pastors

From the beautiful Pacific Northwest to the snow capped mountains of the Swiss Alps, everywhere she goes Pastor Rhonda is ministering. Pastor Rhonda’s first experience in evangelism was when she traveled to Nicaragua, Honduras, and five other Central American countries, ministering with a youth team. Evangelism is still a big part of Pastor Tim and Pastor Rhonda’s ministry; they have been in The Philippines, where they taught at Miracle Bible College, and also in Hong Kong and China. They went with Nora Lam Ministries into China; being recommended by the Secretary to former President Reagan, Nora asked Pastor Rhonda to lead music in the daily worship meetings.

Because of Pastor Rhonda’s background and her position as Co-Pastor of Rivers of Joy Worship Center, she is in contact with the heart and the needs of the people. After moving to Longview, Washington with her Husband Senior Pastor Tim Bonner, Pastor Rhonda was educated and trained in Europe as a perfumer and also received training in her field of expertise, which is beauty and etiquette. She received credentials from Gloria Lavonne’s Institute, Joanne Wallace’s Finishing School and Academy One Modeling School. She was also trained by a Universal Studios professional make-up artist, and is an esthetician. All of this became very useful when Rivers of Joy suddenly found itself making a half an hour TV series. Pastors have also hosted and been guests on the Portland affiliate of “Trinity Broadcasting Network”, station KNMT. Pastors Tim and Rhonda were voted two of sixteen “Pastors of the Year who represent the best in America” by “Charisma” magazine, and in “Gospel Today” magazine as some of the “World’s Most Loved Pastors”.

As the ministry was expanding so was her family, but, Pastor Rhonda kept her four Children priority, now all grown, she is the Grandparent to six. She took in an exchange student from Paris, who turned her life over to Christ while staying with them. A few years later, Pastor Rhonda traveled to Europe and while in Paris spent time with her exchange student, and her parents, who had been Ambassadors to Russia, and Denmark.

In 2006 Pastor Rhonda was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Today, she is not only a survivor, she is a thriver.

From ministering in the remote regions of China, to the view from the Eiffel Tower in Paris; this diverseness has given Pastor Rhonda a unique perspective in ministry. She challenges people to step up to a place of excellence and is a mighty anointed woman who walks in her prophetic gifting.
