Dr. André Roebert, president & CEO of Faith Broadcasting Network, has been in ministry since 1991. Roebert married his wife, Jenny, in March 1992, and together they served first as youth pastors, and later on became district pastors to assist the senior pastors at Good News Church in King Williams Town, Eastern Cape, South Africa.
In 1996, Roebert and his wife started Revival South Africa, an itinerant ministry that traveled from town to town throughout South Africa, out of which The River Church and Ministry was birthed in 1998 in East London. Just two years later, they embarked on the first of many business ventures and a 55,000-square-meter (670,000-square-foot) building was purchased that would become the headquarters of the River Group today.
The Roeberts are the founders and presidents of the River Group, comprising more than 47 different companies and ministries. With the group's own print company, bookshop, media center, churches, River Air Charter Service, three satellite channels, terrestrial broadcasts, multiple building investments, a satellite radio channel, The River Hotels Group, multiple associated ministries, and a humanitarian aid division in full operation, they are able to touch millions of people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
As part of the group, and key to spreading the Gospel, is Faith Broadcasting Network, comprised of multiple channels – satellite, terrestrial, and digital – broadcasting the message of hope across the world. The Roeberts, together with many other people that share a heart for reaching the lost, preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ both effectively and efficiently across the nations of the world. They say the entire continent of Africa is reached through FaithAfrica (satellite), GoTV, and Kwesé (terrestrial), as well as digital platforms such as AmazonFire, Roku, and AppleTV. The same message is also streamed live via the internet and the FaithApp, easily downloadable from iTunes and GooglePlay by anyone with a smart device. Through these broadcasts, as well as several web broadcasts, the Roeberts say a partnership following of hundreds of thousands around the world is now literally taking the Gospel to the ends of the earth 24/7.
