Capener Ministries

Regner and Della Capener

Capener Ministries is a true testament to the power of dedication and hard work. Starting in 1991 as Ekklesia House, this ministry has seen incredible growth and expansion over the years. Its roots as a digital recording studio operation, aimed at capturing spontaneous praise and worship music from gatherings throughout the northwest and Canada, have blossomed into so much more. With over 400 hours of recorded material and seventeen CD’s released under the auspices of Ekklesia Recordings, this ministry has truly made an impact on the world through the gift of music. Regner and Della’s Open Letters to the Ekklesia, published by Ekklesia Publishings, have been an inspiration to many. It’s amazing to see how hard work and passion can create something truly beautiful that touches the hearts of so many.

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 establishing of a 24 hour worship 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 currently operates both from Selah, Washington and Temple, Texas. Della and I have to commute periodically to Selah to be with the locals in person, but we have participants who join us from all over the nation.

Capener Ministries is also the umbrella organization for the public of a weekly online colum (and webiste) titled, Another Coffee Break.

Ephesians Revelation – August 18, 2019 | by Pastor Regner Capener

My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holyname for ever and ever. (Psalms 145:21)

May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, and fulfill all your purpose.

We will rejoice in your salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners!

May the Lord fulfill all your petitions. (Psalm 20:4-5)

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.

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. (Isaiah 60:1)

O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.

Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works. (Psalm 105:1-2)

David’s Tabernacle was a tent set up in Jerusalem and all it contained was the ark, representing the Presence and Glory of God. David’s story begins with his humble beginnings as a shepherd boy, but he quickly rose to prominence when he defeated the giant Goliath with just a sling and a stone. He went on to become a trusted adviser to King Saul, but after Saul’s death, David was anointed as the new king of Israel.

The ark of God was 3 feet 9 inches (1.15 meters) long, 2 feet 3 inches (.68 of a meter) wide and 2 feet 3 inches (.68 of a meter) high. In it were the tablets of the law that Moses brought down from Mount Sinai, a jar of manna, and Aaron’s rod that miraculously budded as a confirmation of his leadership.

Prayer is embracing God's thirst with ours for him.
