Pastor Rich

Pastor Rich was raised in Spokane, WA and began attending Bethel Church of the Nazarene with his mother and siblings at age five. He gave his life to Christ at age seven. At an early age his dreams were filled with visions of the future. At age fifteen while praying about a career, God revealed to Rich that he was to go into ministry. Since ministry wasn’t on his list of careers, Rich put it on the back burner for a few years. In his twenties Rich confirmed his call into ministry. Rich met Andrea because their mothers worked together. They were married in August 1997. Rich and Andrea have three children, Kenzie Emerson (Nathan), Bailee, and Johnathan and one grandson named Brock.
