Rich and Lindy Oliver are the Senior Overseers of The River, a fellowship and network of spirit-led men and women. They have been in ministry for over 40 years, are forerunner revivalists, and are known as Papa Rich and Mama Lindy wherever they go. Together, they travel the world ministering as apostolic leaders to the body of Christ and teach the church how to invite and host the presence of God. As senior pastors for several decades, they understand the value of developing authentic community with believers and wholeheartedly believe that genuine ministry happens through organic relationships. Now as itinerant teachers, they spend most of their time pouring into churches and leaders who long to stay in the River of God’s presence. They truly carry an anointing of a “mother and father” and they are gifted at pastoring pastors. Rich’s down-to-earth teaching style marries maturity and depth in the Spirit and Word with a lighthearted sense of humor. Lindy walks in great discernment and wisdom and brings a timely word to the church whenever she ministers. They reside in Rocklin, California and have three married sons and seven grandchildren, who are the joy of their lives.
