Sir LEEN LA RIVIERE
Lives in Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Chairman - Continental Ministries Europe
Chairman - Christian Artists Europe
"My participation in this first Continental Singers tour in 1970 was a real life changing experience. God used it to call me into an European Ministry in the arts and culture… As result you have today Christian Artists organizations, a Christian arts trade union, 28 books published (and translated in many languages), making TV programs; I lecture across Europe in conferences, church meetings, universities, etc. There are now Continental Singers in several nations in Europe. Based on all my public contributions to the world of art and culture I was knighted by the Queen of the Netherlands in 1999, a great honor. Why? Because Continentals showed me the way to make the Gospel relevant in a contemporary way."
