Rick has attended "church" all his life, serving in several capacities: Sunday School Teacher, Sunday School Superintendent, Church Deacon, as well as Associate Pastor. However, through intense self-study, he has felt the calling of our Father to obey His Word, instead of following the "traditions of men". Rick has accepted the call to teach the Hebrew Foundation of his (and our) faith.
In addition to his "church" background, Rick is a veteran of the US AIr Force, serving for over 11 years. While in the Air Force, Rick was an instructor for over nine years. Upon his separation from the military, Rick returned to college and obtained a Master's Degree. He has also taught as an adjunct instructor at four universities. Rick brings this teaching experience to his current calling with Grafted In Fellowship.
