Pastor Rick and his wife Marcia (of 40 years) with their daughter Kristina (they have a total of 5 children, 7 grandchildren, and two dogs, 15 chickens and 3 horses!!) come to Faith Community Church after a lifetime of ministry in a variety of contexts.
Pastor Rick has been in full-time ministry for over 25 years and during his ministry career, he has served as Senior Pastor, Director of Evangelism of a non-profit ministry, and as a Missionary Chaplain in jails and prisons, along with serving as the chaplain for the Canon City Fire Department in Canon City, CO and Colorado State Patrol, stationed in Montrose, CO. He has participated in foreign and local mission trips as well.
Pastor Rick comes from a very diverse background, both in the secular work world and church life. Raised in a strong tradition of biblical teaching and having a heritage of pastoral ministry, Pastor Rick has been called to proclaim the gospel of Jesus, life in the Spirit, and End-time prophecy.
A hallmark of Pastor Rick and Marcia and their life together has been their passion to see God's Kingdom grow through the transforming power of Jesus in the life of believers.
As a firm believer in the power of open dialog, Pastor Rick enjoys a good conversation over a cup of coffee...especially when the conversation is in deep Bible study! He, also, enjoys most outdoor activities. Specifically, he enjoys riding his Harley Ultra Classic, hunting, fishing, and riding their horses with his family.
