RISEmovement is a coming together around that goodness of Father, the completed work of Jesus that achieved a Superior Covenant, and the enjoyment of fellowship with Holy Spirit.
We have a Global Network of HOPE full of authentic leaders from coast to coast and the northern boarder to the south. There are meaningful relationships and strong partnerships that are unveiling the goodness of Father through The HOPE-filled Gospel.
We are creating and utilizing as many avenues as possible to make ongoing input and connection accessible and available. RISEinstitute is a powerful online school training generations in The HOPE-filled Gospel. Starting a RISEvenue is an awesome way to get with others in your area hungry to gain and grow. Our annual RISEconference is a highlight every year as all of us in RISEmovement prioritize the time to be together in person to worship together, share together, and receive what's needed to advance. The list below shows additional things happening as this movement expands across the earth.
We are impacting lives, revealing the goodness of God, and adding to a brighter future. We are passionate to see those younger and older be the new renaissance leaders in all spheres of culture. We are thrilled with what Jesus accomplished and are living out the present reality that hope is here and as sons and daughters we get to be the display of His glory.

Eric and Angela Reeder are the founders and leaders of RISEmovement. After decades of ministry leadership, church planting, missions, itinerant speaking, authoring, and strategy consulting, they are taking all they've gained and offering all they are to advance leaders that are adding to a brighter future . Eric authored the book "Generational Synergy" and has taught that across the US and other nations. Eric has been featured in Charisma Magazine as one of the 21 Emerging Leaders in the Church, taught on training panels for Mission America Coalition, and provides leadership input to regional and local ministries. Eric is the founder and professor of the online school, RISEinstitute. Eric also serves on the leadership counsel for the Federation of Ministers and Churches International

Eric grew up in a small town in south east Ohio (Vincent, OH) doing all the things boys did then; baseball, play cars in the dirt, climb trees, running through creeks. God drew his family into His Kingdom when he was young. Eric's heart was captured for God's glory, and he started sharing that by leading ministry efforts as early as 13 yrs old. Doing drama performances and speaking in churches, youth camps, etc eventually grew into starting one of the 1st public high school Bible clubs in the early 1990's. At 16, Eric formed a band named Zao (see history) to creatively express his passion for Christ. Although, he pursued other ministry avenues, the band has continued on for 20+ yrs and has become a predominate influence in it's genre (being listed as #4 of the Top 10 Christian Metal Bands / http://noisecreep.com/top-10-christian-metal-bands/, as well as holding the #8 of the Top 100 Christian Metal Albums / See Top 100 Christian Metal Albums). The band, Zao, has made a strong impact.
Eric and Angela were married in 1997 and have 4 children; Ezekiel, Nehemiah, Lizzie, and Liberty. After living many places leading ministry, they now live in their hometown area in south east Ohio (Belpre, OH) enjoying the adventure of being a family, doing gardens, sports, homeschooling, and trusting God's grace to enable them to be all they can for His glory.
