Bill and Melinda Fish are the planters and co-pastors of River City Church of Pittsburgh (formerly church of the Risen Savior) in Trafford, Pennsylvania (PA), a suburb of Pittsburgh, PA. They have been pastoring there for 28 years. Bill graduated in 1975 from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. Melinda is an internationally known teacher and author.
Melinda has written five books, and was also editor of “Spread the Fire Magazine” published by Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship (TACF). Her latest book, “The River is Here”, is the testimony of their 20 year struggle to plant a church and wait on the Lord to send “waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
In 1994 after Bill and Melinda’s first trip to TACF, the Holy Spirit began to pour His love on their congregation. For over six years the River City Church of Pittsburgh has lived in a season of revival where 98% of their congregation have been powerfully touched by the presence of God. They have seen people saved and healed, miracles and physical and emotional restoration. They are seeing people beginning to fall in love with Jesus all over again, and reach out to the lost in America and other nations.
Bill and Melinda have spoken internationally as well as a number of places in America carrying the good news of this new outpouring of the Lord’s grace and mercy as the blessing continues.
