God awakened Bishop Robert Nichols, Jr. more than 20 years ago and called him to the ministry. Since responding to that call with a “Yes, Lord,” he has been spent the rest of his days as a servant-leader, eager to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the world. His unique gifts and charismatic style of delivering the Word of God has impacted lives all across the country.
Bishop Nichols has been on fire for God since receiving salvation at age 17. Shortly thereafter, he was ordained as an elder in the Church of God in Christ. He humbly began ministering under the guidance of his father at Christ Holy Temple Church of God in Christ in Dallas, Texas. While there, he assisted Pastor Robert Nichols, Sr. in pastoral duties as well as the praise and worship ministry.
He founded the River of Life Church in December 1998, and since then he has poured into this rapidly growing ministry and traveled extensively to deliver a power-packed Word filled with messages of faith, hope, and salvation. His biggest passion of teaching faith principles has caused him to see many lives changed and countless others surrender to Christ. In April 2007, Pastor Nichols was elevated to bishopric and founded the Edification Fellowship of Churches (EFOC), which acts as a spiritual covering for inter-denominational and non-denominational churches throughout Texas and around the country.
