Who We are
history & culture
Resurrection Life Church and World Ministry Center began in the home of Bill and Sharon Predovich on January 7, 1990. After several years of ministry activity, God called them to begin a local church. The new congregation soon outgrew the Predovich's home and first moved to a school in Eden Prairie. Later they relocated to a small church building in Bloomington. As the church growth continued, both in numbers and relationships, another expansion was necessary, this time to a warehouse space. It was at this location in Minnetonka where many new ministries and departments were added to the church body life. Several overseas mission outreaches were also launched.
Since June of 1994, the congregation of Resurrection Life Church has resided in Eden Prairie on a ten-acre site with easy access to two main highways in the western Minneapolis/St. Paul suburban area. In this current location the children's ministry, youth ministry, counseling ministry and various other departments have flourished. At present there are approximately 450 adult and children regular attendees, coming from over 25 different cities of the metropolitan area. It is an international church with many cultural and ethnic backgrounds represented in the congregation.
Resurrection Life has assisted in starting five other area churches, helped build an orphanage and school in Vijayawada, India, and participated in building a women's Bible school in Cochin, India. The congregation also supports an outreach ministry to street boys in Uganda, a prayer center in Kenya, and influences and encourages lives in downtown Minneapolis, northern Minnesota, surrounding states and many other nations of the world.
The people of Resurrection Life Church desire to be especially known for their love. They desire to touch lives and affect others everywhere they go. Jesus is the Life, the Reason for existence and the Purpose for which these believers exist. It is God's power, passion and presence that make Resurrection Life Church and World Ministry Center unique.
