Founders

Jeffrey Rugira

Jeffrey Rugira was born in Africa and then moved to Europe. While in Europe, Jeffrey gave his life completely to the Lord. He started seeking the face of God through extended hours of prayer and fasting. He began to feel the call of evangelism and to pursue the call. The Lord led Jeffrey to move to New York. This was one of Jeffrey's first trials and the beginning of his walk of faith to forsake all and follow God. While in New York, Jeffrey turned away from all distractions to consecrate himself to the Lord through extended hours of prayer and fasting. It was during this period that Jeffrey went through numerous visitations and experiences, which drew him closer to the Lord. The call of evangelism intensified as God led him to minister on the streets and subways of New York. Due to Jeffrey’s faithfulness in small beginnings, the Lord instructed him to move to South Carolina. His obedience to this call activated more gifts of God on his life. In South Carolina, he attended Fresh Fire internship with Todd Bentley where miracles, signs, and wonders increased in his ministry.

The passion of Jeffrey's life and ministry is cultivating a deep lifestyle of dwelling in God's presence, winning souls, and seeing others experience the transferable, tangible anointing of the Holy Spirit. God releases His presence and power through Jeffrey's life in a mighty way, confirming that Jesus still heals every sickness and disease. Jeffrey also ministers prophetically, both corporately and personally. He brings forth God's word with power and demonstration of the Spirit-God confirming His word with miracles signs and wonders.

Jeffrey is married to Willy. While in the US Jeffrey calls Fort Mill in South Carolina home and fellowships at Morningstar ministries.
