Speakers and Worship Leaders

Paul Yadao is the lead pastor of Destiny Ministries International based in the Philippines. His passion is to impart desire for intimacy with God, worship and kingdom living. To date, Destiny has 11 churches in various parts of the Philippines, and one each in Malaysia, Dubai, Singapore, Cambodia and New Jersey.


A turning point in his life happened when he met Leif Hetland during one of Randy Clark’s School of Healing in 2006. Leif released a father’s blessing over him and from then on he was never the same again. One year after the impartation, Paul began to see thousands and thousands of hungry souls being set free, being filled and healed by the Father. Paul and his wife Ahlmira have become a true spiritual son and daughter to Leif, and now they travel the world together.


What God is doing through Destiny International is becoming a model and prototype for churches and ministries around the world, and even Bethel Church in Redding, California is sending teams to learn from the Yadaos. Find more information at http://paulyadao.com.

This conference will be hosted by The River, at 1275 US HWY 2 West in Kalispell, Montana.



There is no cost to attend this event. However, this conference will cost us considerably, especially as we cover Paul's international airline tickets. We will be taking offerings to help cover costs and bless Paul.



There will be no childcare provided. Mature children are welcome to attend the conference sessions, but they must be directly supervised at all times.
