Speakers and Worship Leaders

Teapot Hugs grew up in the slums of Calcutta, India. Though she is not even 5 feet tall, she has a huge heart of love. She and her husband are reaching children in India who have been exploited and enslaved, or in some cases, simply forgotten and left behind by society. They are powerfully touching the nation of India as they rescue orphans and widows. They are imparting hope to the ones who are broken and hopeless, and they also are reaching persecuted believers in ways no one else can.


John Gabriel Arends is a worship leader and recording artist with a heart to see people everywhere encounter God's love, truth, and supernatural power. He frequently leads worship at churches, conferences, and events locally, across the USA, and internationally. He has several albums and songs that are being sung in nations around the world. Everywhere he goes, he desires to be a "God-encounter" for people who meet him. John is part of the pastoral team of The River.

Paul and Margie Arends are the senior pastors of The River. They have served in full-time ministry for over 30 years, and they have a burning passion for the church to become that glorious Bride in the earth that fulfills its last days’ commission.

Together they co-lead a vibrant, healing community of believers who are preparing for the greatest move of God in history. Miracles and the supernatural works of the Kingdom of God are abundant in their ministry. Both Paul and Margie are powerful teachers and writers.
