Really enjoys doing things with his family. Enjoys spending time with his children and their families, taking groups of teens to Central America in the summer, and working together with adults and high school leaders in ministering to middle school students.  Especially love the lake and beach!!

  • In Rick's own words: “Even though I didn’t know Him at the time, I now realize how gracious God was to me growing up.  I was brought up in an alcoholic home, but God blessed me with abilities in swimming and academics, and surrounded me with people to help me overcome my obstacles.  I just wasn’t bright enough to realize it was Him providing!  God got my attention when I was 18 and awaiting trial for a felony.  He brought people into my life to tell me about and show me the love of Jesus.  I am so excited that perhaps I can be that person in some teens’ lives now, and to help develop them into the kind of servant who can reach out in Christian love to make a difference in the lives of their peers.”
