The Lord graced David and Carolyn Hamer with much more than the gifts of hospitality that elevated River Spring Lodge as the premier lodging destination in Western New York. When Chef David is not in the kitchen, he is in his study mining riches from the Word of God or composing worship music as he ministers to the Lord. An anointed hymnist and minstrel, David welcomes the Holy Spirit into the room as he leads worshippers into the manifest presence of God. In that atmosphere God seeking souls are strengthened as this father in the faith opens treasures from the Word of God. David’s ministry began as a revivalist in the Jesus People movement. When David came to the village of Attica forty-three years ago, a very significant outpouring of the Holy Spirit took place. At the same time Carolyn experienced the baptism of the Holy Spirit and served on a leadership team in the Catholic Charismatic Movement in Indiana. For almost 30 years the Hamers traveled in ministry throughout the United States and overseas equipping believers, strengthening local churches and encouraging ministry leaders. Now this father and mother in the faith are pouring into the lives of God hungry people that gather at the lodge.
