Joseph Castillo joins staff at River of Life Christian Center
Evangelist Joseph Castillo has recently joined the staff at River of Life Christian Center, Greenwood, Del. God has recently called him to the first State of Delaware to stir the flames of revival. The vision God has given him is for training the body for power evangelism and to transform the youth to a mighty army for God. Evangelist Castillo has worked with some of America's largest ministries including Bill Winston, Rod Parsley and most recently churches from the Pensacola Brownsville Revival that are in Europe after the outpouring of the mid 90s. He has ministered in many churches throughout America, Europe and in Jamaica. Though a special gift to teach and preach the good news has been upon his ministry, the true hallmark has been the mighty manifestations of Gods power to confirm the word of God and destroy the works of the darkness. Evangelist Castillo once was bound by drugs and was a leader in one of Chicago's worst street gangs until God delivered him and gave him the special call to win the lost and raise up a sold-out generation of young people. There are young Christians all over Delaware who are luke warm, bound by sin and in churches that have had little impact upon their lives. God wants to pour out His Spirit upon them in a fresh and revolutionary way.
