Pastor John D. Stewart

Worship to God brings a real sense of strength, awe and joy.
We at River of Life express ourselves to God in the freedom God gives.
As people are free to use their gifts we enjoy them on their drums, guitars and piano. 
We at River of Life cannot do without the many volunteers that help in this ministry to the Glory of God!


Pastor John is the lead pastor of Miramichi City's River Of Life Assembly and Miramichi Fellowship Center in Blackville.  John has been here at River Of Life for the past  6 years. 
His dedication to his faith and to the church is a strength that we all benefit from.  John and his wife Darlene, of 28 years reside in Blackville, Miramichi.
