Francis Frangipane Bio

Francis and Denise received ministerial training at Grace Chapel in Southern California. They started their first church in Hilo, Hawaii. From there they pastored a small church in Detroit, Michigan and planted eight churches and home groups in southeastern Michigan and Ontario, Canada.

Later, Francis accepted a position pastoring a church in Cedar Rapids, IA. It was in Iowa that Francis became united with several other pastors from various evangelical denominations who met for monthly prayer. After three years, the founding minister of this prayer group moved, and Francis and another local pastor picked up the prayer initiative. They opened it up for intercessors and increased their times together from monthly to weekly. The group multiplied which led to many other interdenominational citywide events.

It was also during this time that Pastor Frangipane began to write. His first book, Holiness, Truth and the Presence of God, was a compilation of his essays and sermons. He wrote his second book, The Three Battlegrounds. Both these books became best sellers. He has written fifteen books including four In Christ’s Image Training manuals, which were developed for his online school, plus a number of study booklets.

Francis is the founder of River of Life Ministries and has traveled throughout the world ministering to thousands of pastors and intercessors from many backgrounds. Francis’ heartfelt prayer is to see Christlike pastors and intercessors, united before God, revealing the love of Christ to their communities.

Over the past decades, Francis served on a number of ministry boards. He is the president of In Christ’s Image Training Courses (ICIT) an online discipleship program. Francis Frangipane is currently devoting himself to prayer and the ministry of God’s word and his daughter, Joy, works alongside him as he continues to seek the heart of God.
