About Us...

mikecindy01The Teagardens came to River Valley Life Center in May 2008, after selling their “dream house” and moving to Lancaster, Ohio. By the leading of the Holy Spirit they found oversight in Pastors Paul and Paula Bishop, and now serve as congregational pastors. Mike and Cindy have six grown children, Freddie, Beth, Jill, Dee, Michael, and Carla, and Twelve grandchildren.

Mike has pastored churches, started churches, supervised a church camp, organized a Christian coffeehouse, conducted Christian radio programs, and organized community intercession groups. His heart’s desire is to disciple many sons and daughters to maturity, bringing them into the fulfillment of their ministries through alignment and relationship.  Cindy has been a mime for many years, directed a benevolence ministry, and excelled in intercessory prayer. Her passion is to bring wholeness to the body of Christ through the healing, delivering, saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.   Ex. 8: 1 “Let my people go, that they may serve Me.”

During a two and ½ year period of sitting under Pastors Chris and Sandy Longgrear of Fresh Fires Ministries, Int’l of Parkersburg, WV, the Teagardens received training and were ordained by Charles and Frances Hunter in 2007. This training and impartation from the “Happy Hunters” resulted in a noticeable difference in the results obtained when praying for the sick. As a result of aligning with daughter Joan Hunter, they also have received training for praying for emotional needs and exposing root causes. They now are Joan's "Ohio Team"

Mike and Cindy do Healing & Miracle Services, Schools, Crusades and Conferences for churches when invited, teaching how to believe and receive all the healing Jesus died for, laying hands on the sick, expecting miracles.healingPic01
 
We're hitting the streets with "FireStorm Evangelism!" 
Using teams of Healing School graduates from the area churches, which go out into the communities, pray for the sick, offer salvation, bring forth freedom... expecting "Divine appointments.”

“We love adventure.  When God moved us to Lancaster we started having one Healing/Miracle School after another, seeing many healings, miracles, salvations and deliverances. Many have been filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. God has raised up more than 1,000 students-adults and children- in the last seven years, who are laying hands on their families, neighbors, co-workers, and complete strangers! We believe that’s just the beginning of what He wants to do.”
