Capener Ministries


The quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment and wisdom.


Capener Ministries an organization dedicated to the establishing of 24-hour praise, worship and intercession ministries that minister specifically to the Lord Jesus Christ; and then to produce mature Christian believers who live and operate as true representatives of Jesus Christ, demonstrating His love, His power, and His authority.


Capener Ministries is the outgrowth of what began at first in 1991 as Ekklesia House, and then in 2002 as R & DC Ministries, Texas. R & DC Ministries was intinally founded to put together under one organizational roof the recording and publishing operations of Ekklesia House. Ekklesia House began in 1991 primarliy as a digital recording studio operation aimed at recording spontaneous praise and worship gatherings taking place at various locations throughtout the northwest and Canada. More than 400 hours of spontaneous praise and worship music were recorded to digital tape. Thus far, a dozen cassette tapes and seventeen CD’s have been released from those music archives under the auspices of Ekklesia recordings. During the 1990’s, Regner and Della began publishing a series of Open Letters to the Ekklesia. Those letters were published under the auspices of Ekklesia Publishings.

In 2002 with the change to R & DC Ministries, additional ministry objectives were added in the form of counseling for pastors and church leaders, along with enhanced publication of previous Open Letters; and in 2006 the name was changed to Capener Ministries and the purpose enlarged to the building and establising of a 24 hour waorship center and other related church operations. The ministry was moved from Texas to Washington in the early 2006 with founding of River Worship Center in Sunnyside. River Worship Center operates seven days a week with spontaneous praise, worship and intercession at 7:00 PM, Monday thur Friday, Saturday night at 7:00 PM we have spanish language services under the direction of Cesar Lopez. Sunday Morning at 10:00 AM is a regular Sunday Morning service with praise, worship, intercession, fellowship and a time of teaching from the Word of God. Sunday Night, again at 7:00 PM is a Spanish language worship service with teaching. Capener Ministries is also the umbrella organization for the public of a weekly online colum (and webiste) titled, ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK. The corresponding website is:
