Pastor George Rigos (European Director)
and Mrs. Esther Rigos (Children Ministry Director)

Pastor George Rigos is the European Director for Keith Butler Ministries. He is based in Athens, Greece. Pastor George graduated with a Business degree from the University of South Africa. After that he moved to London, England where he studied Law at the University of London. During this time the Lord called him to full-time ministry. Knowing from a young age that he was called, he left his studies, and started working in several churches and ministries before deciding to attend Pistis Bible Training Center in London. He is a graduate of the first ever Pistis class in Europe.


Following graduation the Lord called him to Los Angeles, California where he planted and pastored a church in Hollywood and then Malibu. He is also an Associate Trainer with John Maxwell’s Equip Leadership Team, where he trains leaders in biblical leadership principles in Greece, Europe and the USA. While in Los Angeles he met his wife, Esther. They serve together in ministry with their daughter Giuliana and their sons Nicholas, Paul and Christopher.


Pastor George has a heart for the church, which he wants to see walking in the fullness of the promises of God, and to see the Kingdom of God expanded all over the world.
