A 10 Lesson Course


River member Diana Chapman has done extensive research on the 20th century Pentecostal revival in Britain while studying for her Masters Degree in Mission from the University of Wales. This resulted in her book, Searching the Source of the River: The Forgotten Women of the British Pentecostal Revival.

She teaches both in the UK and abroad and was a missionary in Uganda for 3 years. Diana teaches River's Big Year training programme.


These videos were recorded by the International Christian Women’s Hall of Fame & History Project, a "multifaceted undertaking to equip women to be change agents in society and the Christian community by honoring women of the past and present, and by providing interactive education, strategic resources, significant relationships, leadership training, and ministry opportunities"
