Rivers of Life Apostolic Network


Ps. Michael DJ. Widjaja


A few months into the year 2022, the Lord Jesus Christ said to his prophet, Dr. Steven Francis, “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; do not hold back; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes. For you will spread abroad to the right and to the left, and your offspring will possess the nations and will people the desolate cities” (Isaiah 54:2-3 ESV). Hallelujah! The Lord is true to His Word and by the grace of God, the ministry of Rivers of Life Apostolic Ministries is now on the ground in 5 different states within the United States of America and at 4 strategic nations within the Asian continent.


In November of the year 2020, Jesus My King Church Maryland was established under the leadership of Elders Daud and Lystia Santosa, as ordained and appointed by the ministry and becoming the second church plant of Jesus My King Church after the headquarters in Shelby, North Carolina. JMK Maryland is now 15 members strong with weekly Sunday services and prayer meetings. The Lord has prepared Elders Daud and Lystia since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic by instructing them to convert their basement into a church meeting hall and to purchase more than 20 foldable chairs. I had the privilege of being invited to speak at their house fellowship in August of 2022 and that was when the apostolic connection was made and the Lord then gave the commission to Rev. Dr. Steven Francis to plant a church in the State of Maryland.


In the year 2022, 3 more local churches have been added into the fellowship of the Rivers of Life Apostolic Network, beginning with the induction of the House of Worship Ministry in Sedalia, Kentucky who is now known as Jesus My King House of Worship under the leadership of Pastors Joseph and Crystal Hamilton. Pastors Hamilton established the church in 2014 and they were crying out to God for a spiritual father and an apostolic covering that will help the ministry to thrust forward in all that God has for them. After meeting with Dr. Steven Francis, their lives and ministry have never been the same and in the month of June 2022, they were formally ordained as pastors and Jesus My King House of Worship became part of the Rivers of Life Apostolic Network.


Jesus My King Church Los Angeles was established in April of 2022 with now 30 members strong. The Assistant Pastor of the church, Ps. Kevin Widjaja, was ordained on October 23rd at the headquarters of ROLAM in Shelby, NC. The young church is now actively reaching out to more than 20 young adults with weekly discipleship discussion group as well as an adult discipleship group with weekly prayer meetings. Many of the church members have been following my ministry since I was a youth pastor in Los Angeles, CA and I am blessed to know that they are still actively building the House of God.


Warriors For Christ Church in Laredo, TEXAS became part of the Rivers of Life Apostolic Network in October of 2022 and their pastors, Ps. Hector Rosas and Assistant Pastor Daniel Rosas, were ordained in Shelby, NC on October 30th, 2022. Warriors For Christ Church was established in 2019 and is the fulfillment of a prophecy given by Dr. Steven Francis to Ps. Hector Rosas when they met briefly at a conference in Gettysburg, PA back in 2017. Glory to God. In just 3 years, the church is now close to 100 members strong with a strong emphasis in prayer and the teaching of the Word of God. Throughout the week, the men, women, young adults, youths, and children are all engaged in fellowship and corporate gatherings that further strengthen the church to become a lasting impact in the City of Laredo.


The Rivers of Life Apostolic Network is established to give prophetic direction and apostolic oversight to the pastors and leaders of each local church and to better equip them as they labor in their respective geographical location. Furthermore, we are committed to assist them in equipping their congregation to become a trained-force army through conducting intensive Biblical training such as The King’s School of Prophets, The King’s School of Ministry, and other special meetings that have a Word, prayer, power, and presence emphasis. Pastors and leaders belonging to the Rivers of Life Apostolic Network will have free access to special teaching materials as well as the annual conferences that we host such as Prepare Conference.


Jesus My King Church Singapore under the leadership of Pastors Barnabas Wong and James Diamante, as the regional headquarter in Asia is overseeing the 3 (including Singapore) Jesus My King churches in Philippines under the pastoral care of Ps. Jojo Diamante and Jesus My King Church Bangalore, India, under the pastoral care of Dr. John Daniel and Elder Kishore Kumar.


In December of 2022, I was ministering in Jakarta, Indonesia and was about to travel to the city of Manado when I received a phone call from Dr. Steven Francis. In his prayer of blessings as I was about to drive to the airport, the Prophet of God prophesied and declared that, “the office is ready.” Honestly, I was not sure what the prophecy meant but I pondered the Word of the Lord in my heart. A few days later in Manado, I was invited by the business owner of a video production company as well as a photo studio to dedicate his new building as it was a fulfillment of a prophecy that I released 3 years prior before the COVID-19 pandemic that the Lord will provide him with a new building. At that time, his business was still in its infancy stage and was operated in his house. Praise God!


As the business owner brought me to the third floor of the building, he opened the door to an office space and said, “This is the space that I have dedicated before God to be used as your ministry office here in the City of Manado.” Immediately, the prophecy given to me by Dr. Steven Francis a few days prior came to mind and I knew that this office space is its fulfillment. As of January 2023, Rivers of Life Apostolic Ministries Indonesia is now a registered non-profit organization with the name, ROLAM Indonesia. Glory to God! We have now employed one full-time staff, one part-time staff, and are conducting 2 weekly JMK Fellowships both in Jakarta and Manado. More than 100 participants are attending our bi-weekly Online Bible Study and we will have our first The Voice of The Lord For Indonesia Online Prophetic Conference on March 7-9, 2023.


On January 27th, 2023, the City of Manado experienced heavy flooding that caused landslides at multiple locations. ROLAM Indonesia mobilized our team of youths to provide relief efforts by sending basic needs as well as delivering food to more than 400 individuals that were impacted.


What a privilege to be all that God has called us to be, to do all that God has willed us to do, and to prepare the way for the glorious second coming of our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ.
