Bulgarian pastor to minister at My Father’s House of Prayer
Dimitrovs founded The River Church while country still under communist regime
On Sunday, Dec. 2, at the 10:20 a.m. service, Pastor Mitko Dimitrov will minister at My Father’s House of Prayer, 118 E. Jefferson St., Morris. All are invited to this special service.
Pastor Mitko and Albena Dimitrov are founders and senior pastors of The River Church in Dobrich, Bulgaria. They founded the church in 1988, when Bulgaria was still under a communist regime. As a result, the church was underground at that time and Pastor Mitko, many times, faced persecution.
A couple of years later, after the fall of the communist regime, their church grew fast, with crowds of young people getting saved and making it the biggest church in the city.
Then, in the fall of 1995, at a prayer meeting, Pastor Mitko and Albena had a mighty visitation by the Holy Spirit and were heavily overwhelmed with the supernatural Joy of the Lord. This experience dramatically transformed their lives and the River of God impacted their whole church as well.
Soon after that, they met Georgian Banov and became part of Global Celebration Ministry. Ever since then, they have been taking an active part in the annual mission trips of Global Celebration among the Gypsies in Bulgaria. They have also made many mission trips to Turkey and Romania.
Since 1998, Pastor Mitko and Albena, together with their son Chris, have been traveling to the U.S.A. on an annual basis, being invited to minister in many River churches throughout the States.
Their ministry carries a powerful anointing of fresh revelation on the Word of God, taking out the hidden treasures of the Bible and lifting up the finished work of Christ on the Cross. They love to flow in the River of God’s manifest presence and move strongly in the prophetic for the encouragement and edification of the Body of Christ.
