Apostle R.H Cross, Jr, Ph.d is a fifth generation preacher. He has been consecrated as a bishop and serves as the Vice-Bishop of National Affairs within the Apostolic Faith Church of God, Live On. He has also been affirmed as an apostle due to the ministry gifts that are in operation in his ministry and the calling upon his life. His wife, Prophetess Freda Y. Cross, serves alongside him. They both are the proud parents of three anointed sons, Richard, III (Tres'), Micah and Joshua and one beautiful daughter-in-law, Danielle. And last but not least, one precious grandson. They all play very integral roles within the ministry.
Apostle has ministered and pastored internationally. He is the senior pastor of the Rose of Sharon Worship Center, Franklin Va. Apostle is also the senior pastor of The Greater El Bethel Deliverance Center, Suffolk Va. This congregation was birthed from the ground in the year 2003 and is housed at the headquarter building of the Apostolic Faith Church of God, Live On.
Most of all, Apostle is saved, set a part from a life of sin and condemnation, and is filled with the Holy Spirit. He operates in a powerful healing and deliverance ministry with signs and wonders in operation. He loves people and is dedicated to his family and to the church of God, being certain to carry out the will of the Father in the earth.
One of Apostle's personal convictions is to mentor other generals (those called to operate in the 5-fold ministry) in the Body of Christ. Also to establish an international network of apostles, bishops, prophets, etc. that will come against the principalities of this world, against satanic powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. This network will do battle in area where there have been strong satanic attacks across the world.
