Deborah is one of the most influential women of the Bible. As a prophet, Judge Deborah was said to hear God's voice and share God’s Word with others. Similar to the prophet in the Bible, Prophetess Webb is a power and thought influencer. Fueled with a passion to engage with others to educate, equip and empower them to excel in life is by divine mandate. Her bold, authoritative candid style of preaching and prophesying has provoked her followers to pursue a lifestyle of honor, integrity and wisdom. She has prophesied over countless lives and like the prophet Samuel, not one word has fallen to the ground.
With a pioneering spirit and anointing, she has been instrumental in planting over 11 local assemblies through the years of which one she served as the Senior Pastor.
Prophetess Webb is more than a Prophet of God; she is a mother to two grown sons, Ricky and Deron; a grandmother, sister, dear friend, praiser, preacher, and prayer warrior. She devotes herself to hours of prayer to communicate accurately to the people of God the word of God. She is respected nationally and internationally and God has again lead her endeavors to plant a new ministry here at Living Rivers.
In her leisure , she loves watching her favorite pastime when in season, football. As an avid Redskins fan, you may find her in "intense dialogue" defending her team!
Pastor Rickey Banner is a native Washingtonian and the eldest son of Prophetess Deborah K. Webb. As a great teacher and disciplinarian, she instilled invaluable qualities in him that established his integrity, intelligence, loyalty, work ethic and sincerity. At the tender age of five, his family experienced a conversion to Pentecostalism and a short time later, Pastor started to become more involved in ministry.
During these years, he also matriculated through the DMV public school systems as well as obtained a bachelor’s degree in theology. Pastor Banner was ordained and licensed as a minister of the gospel in June 1998. The lifelong parental training and discipline he received, were now great tools being implemented to help shape the young minister into an effective servant.
Pastor Banner has served the body of Christ in many capacities to include Armorbearer, Musician, Sunday School Teacher, Youth Chaplain, Youth Pastor, Church Administrator down to the parking lot attendant, just to name a few. As he continued to mature and develop in ministry, it resulted in his elevation as an Elder and Assistant Pastor in March 2001. Continuing in the pursuit of excellence, Pastor Banner humbly accepted his call to the Pastorate. He was consecrated to this office in July 2007.
After several years, Pastor was led by God to serve as an Associate Pastor under the leadership of Bishop Glen A. Staples. Once again, God prepared His servant and commissioned him in October 2020 to open the doors as Senior Pastor of Living Rivers.
This ecumenical, non-denominational church is fully committed to the divine directives of the Great Commission, “Go Ye” and win souls for the kingdom of God is at hand. Pastor Banner considers it a privilege and an honor to serve Gods’ people.
In addition to ministry, he is also an entrepreneur, ardent fan of multiple sports, loves outdoor activities and profoundly enjoys spending time with his family. Pastor is happily married to his wife Liliana and together they share a handsome young prince, Jeremiah.
Only God knows the totality of the great things he has in store for His servant and he is humbled to be chosen and used for the upbuilding of the kingdom which will yield eternal rewards!! To God be all the glory!!
