Greg and Bonnie Temke

Pastor Greg, a native of Cincinnati, Ohio, was raised German Catholic,  and met Jesus during his senior year of high school. His wife, Bonnie, grew up in church in the small town of Brinkley, Arkansas. Pastor Greg’s ministry style is relational and his preaching style is a teaching-preaching style where altar calls are given to allow the Holy Spirit the opportunity to move in people’s lives. Bonnie is a compassionate friend that enjoys praying for and encouraging the ladies at River of Life. The Temkes have been married for 35 years and have two incredible children Landon (32) and Lindsie (30), and two grandchildren, Aiden & Conway.
