The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor.  He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound….Isaiah 61:1.

Francis C. Meristal is a preacher, teacher, charismatic leader, motivational speaker and the senior Pastor of Rhema Life Changing International Ministries. Pastor Francis Meristal is the husband of First Lady and CO Pastor Joelle Meristal; together they are proud parents of two beautiful children, Joy Claire and Nathan Charles Meristal.  His passion to fulfill God’s mandate for these turbulent times has drawn many closer to the cross; Pastor Francis Meristal has empowered many believers of Jesus Christ for the manifestation of the Kingdom of God on the earth.

Pastor Francis Meristal was born in Port au Prince, Haiti on November 28th 1981 where he was given up for adoption at three months old and brought up into America through his adopted mother Jeanne Meristal.  At the age of nineteen in the year of two thousand, Pastor Francis Meristal was introduced to the gospel of Jesus Christ under the denomination of Church of God, where he was miraculously saved and delivered from porn addiction.  In 1999, Pastor Francis Meristal graduated from William H. Turner Tech High School in Miami, FL. In 2005, He decided to shape his young life by becoming a Diagnostic Ultrasound Technician where he obtained an Associate in Science degree at ATI Health College.  In 2006, The Lord called Pastor Francis Meristal into full time ministry where he received a global vision for prophetic and revelatory impartation to the nations and the world. In 2012, Pastor Francis Meristal received a Bachelor of Science in Religion at Liberty University.

Pastor Francis Meristal has impacted many lives during his ministry; he has traveled many places such as Haiti, Uganda, and The United Kingdom to preach and teach the Living Word God.  In 2009, Pastor Francis Meristal envisioned a ministry that transcends beyond the normal religious traditions of man.  As the family moves by faith, Pastor Francis Meristal birthed Rhema Life Changing International Ministries in as a non- traditional ministry setting with a multi-cultural mission. Rhema Life Changing International Ministries launched its first conference in South Florida known as Rhema Conference Tour 2009 “A Deeper Experience”. Many lives were changed, and relationships were restored throughout this powerful event.

As the ministry transits from glory to glory they launched a monthly event known as Breakthrough Night in Sunrise, FL and Cherry Hill, NJ. On January 2011, The Lord released Pastor Francis Meristal and his lovely wife Joelle Meristal into launching their first church in the South Jersey area in Voorhees, NJ.  Pastor Francis Meristal ministry uniquely promotes reconciliation and redemption through Christ Jesus; it also operates as a missile to destroy the limitations of traditions, penetrate the hardest of the hearts, heal the brokenhearted, and proclaim liberty to the captives.  Pastor Meristal and his wife continue to be a voice of hope in their community and together they are reaching and transforming lives one day at a time through the powerful word of God.
