I am Annette Rivers, Lead Pastor of The SURGE Experience, an individual honored to have been called, chosen, and sent by God to share the TRUTH of Jesus Christ. Some would like to refer to me as a Bishop, because of the ministries I oversee. Some would prefer to call me Apostle, because of the mandate to plant and establish.
I do not possess a desire to hold any title for the recognition of man. I am honored with the opportunity to serve God in any capacity He purposed for my life. For His glory, I am Annette Rivers the Apostle, sent by God, for the equipping of saints and the edifying of the body of Christ. I am the Pastor, to watch and shepherd His flock. The Preacher, to deliver the gospel of Jesus Christ to the uttermost parts of the earth. The Teacher, to make known His love, deliverance, and power for mankind. The Prophet to reveal the supernatural, unveiled, revelation of God encounter.
My preference for reference is very simple. I am Annette Rivers, a chosen Vessel of God.
