About Our Founder

Evangelist Richelieu A. Reeves was reared in a home which emphasized the norm of society.
Because of this, he never felt the necessity of personal faith in Christ.

Nevertheless, God never ceased to provide ways and means for him to go beyond moral norms of the society to personal faith in Christ. This began when he started attending a Christian group in his church called, “Royal Ambassadors” (RA) which was a boys missions organization. He was introduced to Christ, and told about His death, burial, and resurrection. Evangelist Reeves accepted Christ according to Rom. 10: 9-10, and believed Eph. 2: 8-9. He was baptized in Union Baptist Church (Fortsville, Liberia), by the late Rev. Charles K. Reeves on March 6, 1984 and became part of Christ’s glorious family.

Evangelist Reeves was called to the ministry by the grace of God and that grace is still keeping him in the ministry. On March 11, 1993, on his 19th birthday, during the time of Liberia bloody civil war, he was attacked by rebels while traveling along the road. Their intent was to kill him but as they began to argued among themselves as to who would be the one to kill him, he heard a voice saying to him, “I will deliver you but go and preach the good news to everyone you will meet.” After he heard this command, he escaped from the rebels and found himself back in his home area. A short time later, the Radio Station ELWA (Eternal Love Winning Africa) was playing a beautiful song entitled, “Take a look from where Jesus took you from,”” and as he listened to it, tears began to run from his eyes and he made a vow to God that he would preach God’s Word as He was commanded. 

From that day, the Lord put in Evangelist Reeves; heart a great passion for lost souls. Since that time, God has been using him to win souls for Christ.

Our Lord invested in twelve men and today, after His ascension into heaven, we were able to receive the gospel, and considering Matthew 28: 19-20, and II Timothy 2:2, evangelist Reeves decided to teach others how to serve the Lord. Evangelist Reeves is a soul winner and his life verse for his ministry is Acts 20:24 which states “But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.” He has been influenced strongly by men like John Owen, John Bunyan, John Paton, Adoniram Judson, George Whitefield, Oswald J. Smith and others (Though they have passed away, they are still speaking to him).

Evangelist Richelieu Reeves grew up in the Southern Baptist Church in Liberia, West Africa. He excelled in his denomination to the point that he became President of the RA organizations in Grand Bassa County. He also served as the Director of Evangelism for Youth For Christ in Danane (Ivory Coast), and Youth Director for Last Days Outreach Ministry in Ghana. Evangelist Reeves taught at New Generation Bible School in Ghana, and served as Mission Pastor at Bethesda Christian Fellowship International in Atlanta, Georgia (USA). He also served as Youth Teacher at Clarkston International Bible Church in Atlanta, Georgia (USA).

Evangelist Reeves graduated from United Methodist High School in Liberia and went to the Evangelical School of Theology in Ghana. He graduated from Luther Rice Bible College and Seminary in Lithonia, Georgia with a BA and Master of Divinity degrees. He is a graduate student at Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois. He is an apologist, and teaches seminars, and conferences in the United States and Africa. Evangelist Reeves has written several articles and is the author of Persevering in the Faith, Persevering in Spiritual Warfare, and Persevering in the midst of Ebola. Above all, evangelist Reeves believed that prayer is the highest calling that any Christian can desire.
