Born in Nairobi, Kenya, Prophet Lovy was visited by the Lord Jesus at the age of 6, in a vision. In this vision, the Lord told him that he was a prophet and showed him how He was going to use him and send him to the nations; highlighting a place surrounded by mountains. Fast forward to 2013, the Lord positioned Prophet Lovy in the valley of Los Angeles, CA, and instructed him to begin a prayer group, in his living room, just as he was shown from his childhood visitation. Rooted in the word of God, the prophetic, deliverance and healing, what began as a living room meeting has expanded to what has become Revelation Church of Jesus Christ (RCJC). Today, RCJC stands to fulfill the word of God, through the life and ministry of Prophet Lovy.
