CHECK OUT OUR STAFF BIOS
Rick joined Orchardville Church as the Youth Pastor for Modified Youth in January of 2017 and transitioned into the Senior Pastor position in June of 2021. He spent his early years growing up near Chicago (loves the Cubs) and moved to Southern Illinois with his family when he was in junior high. He gave his life to the Lord at a young age, but didn’t grasp the relationship Jesus wanted with him until he was out of high school. It was at this time he felt called to ministry. His passion for working with youth began when he began volunteering to help out with the youth group at his church. He volunteered as the youth pastor at a local church for eight years. During this time, he enrolled in college and received his Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education/Special Education. He taught in the area for a few years before beginning his ministry here at Orchardville Church.
Rick is married to Sara, his partner in ministry, and they have two children; a son named Jaxon who passed away in July of 2022 and a daughter named Brylin. He enjoys spending time with his family, his friends, movies, reading, and coaching sports. Rick knows ministry is his calling and his heart is for as many people as possible to come to know Jesus as their Savior and best friend.
