Tom and Bernice possess the unique qualities of optimism in life and a commitment to blameless integrity in ministry; this has set them apart from any other leaders we’ve had the privilege to know. Their radical obedience to God’s voice has and will impact the lives of many. It is with great pleasure we endorse Tom and Bernice, whom we have had relationship with for nearly 20 years.

It is with great love and excitement that I have the privilege to totally endorse the ministry and work of Tom and Bernice Hammond. They are doing a powerful work in Brazil and Lindy and I and the River Network are thrilled to be a part of it. Looking at both their ministry and their regional projects to help the people with clean water, I can think of few other ministry’s I would rather be involved with and invest both time and money into. I encourage anyone reading this endorsement to consider support to and for the Hammond Family and ministry–These are first class, great people.
– Pastors Richard and Lindy Oliver, Overseers ~ The River International Revival Network
The mission of the Hammond family and River International is one that I not only support with my time by sitting on the Board of Directors; but one that I support with my finances on a monthly basis. Not all of us can sacrifice as Tom, Bernice and their children have, by uprooting their lives to throw themselves right in the middle of these people who need them so desperately. However, we can make a difference by partnering with them to assist them in extending God’s hand which is exactly what they are doing…Saving lives by providing clean drinking water as well as saving souls with the Gospel of Jesus Christ is a win, win situation and one that I am proud to be a part of.

I’d like to thank God for Pastor Tom’s life and his family. Because of the love they show to the hopeless in our nation, their passion and dedication have influenced us and made a difference in our churches. We love them very much!

Being a missionary to Brazil for over 17 years I know what areas the Church in Brazil is lacking more than any other: leadership. Capable leaders are in need in our nation. Having seen Pastor Tom passionately teaching the emerging leaders through the John Maxwell’s EQUIP, I started crying knowing that Pastor Tom is the man God has sent for such a time as this. He’s not only a leader himself but he’s an influent leader who is impacting lives to change the status quo of the Church in Brazil. Definitely a man of God.

Tom and Bernice Hammond along with their beautiful family possess the very heart of Jesus. Their love for the hurting and broken compels them to live sacrificially to bring hope to those who need it most. I am deeply moved by their humility and compassion for people. In addition to having them speak into our lives personally at Soul Harvest Worship Center, I have sent a team to Brazil to minister along side them. They’ve seen firsthand the powerful work that is being done by them and River International. Souls are being saved, the sick are healed, and lives are being restored by the power of the Holy Spirit through their obedience! It is an honor to endorse them, and to financially support their ministry. I love them dearly. They are the REAL DEAL!
-Verna Brown, Senior Pastor ~ Soul Harvest Worship Center
Throughout the ages God raises up leaders around the world. God has given us Tom and Bernice Hammond, bestowed upon them the gift of a great vision for the Nation of Brazil. I was honored to have shared in that vision this year (2013) in Brazil with the Hammonds. We saw many souls saved, healing of the sick and clean drinking water filters installed on the Amazon River and again at the Rio “city dump site”. I am proud and honored to endorse Tom and Bernice Hammond as Missionaries to Brazil, and Founders of River International. I would encourage each of you to support these mighty warriors of God.
– Randy Cluck, Senior Pastor ~ Stockton Word of Life
It is with great honor and respect that I recommend Tom & Bernice. They walk with the heart of his Father, speaking with authority, and a teaching gift that has the ability to articulate the essence of the Word of God in a manner that touches the hearts of the listeners. The example in how they lead their family exemplifies the Father’s love. I highly recommend them as a ministry for your generous giving, and as a speaker to any gathering of believers that needs a powerful, inspired Word from the Lord that is on key for what they need to hear at that very moment. They hear from God, boldly walking in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, and intimacy with Jesus.
