Pastor Rick served for 22 years in the United States Air Force and has since worked as a contractor supporting the Department of Defense. Over the last 15 years, Rick has served on the New Life La Plata Local Board of Administration, as a marriage ministry leader, on children’s ministry teams, security teams, within men’s community groups, and also facilitated Financial Peace University courses. Rick’s heart is leading men to become stronger in their faith, families, and communities. Rick has been faithfully serving local communities in the church for years, and as a career military member, he has served in more than 40 countries. He is particularly excited about the opportunity to minister to the military community in Indian Head, MD. Last year Rick answered a greater call to church leadership and began ministry classes through The Wesleyan Church.
