Pastor Rick was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1961. In 1985 at age 24, he turned his life over to the Lord. He found that every area of his life, including being a musician since age 8, was blessed immensely when he gave up control of his desires for his future--and let Christ have preeminence. Soon after his conversion to Christianity, he was asked to led worship, which lasted for many years. He also led various young men and boys groups. Later he attended Bible school as well as served as assistant pastor in the church he grew to love. Then, following the leading of the Lord which took him to a Calvary Chapel church in his area, he served there for a number of years leading worship. Later he was called to take the pastorate back at the church that he had poured so many of his years into and now is teaching chapter by chapter, verse by verse thru the Bible which is now called Calvary Chapel of Wisconsin Rapids.
Pastor Rick and his wife Brenda have a deep love for the fellowship at Calvary Chapel of Wisconsin Rapids and seek to help each one find a deeper walk with the Lord thru His word and thru relationship with Christ. His knowledge and experience is valued as he serves on the Oasis Christian Fellowship board.
