Ministry Leadership
Minister of Finances and Administration

Rick joined Crossway as a church member in 2005 and was asked to join our staff in 2013. He entered the United States Air Force after High School and was saved while serving in Japan. He felt the call to ministry just before he retired and began full-time in 1999. 

He has advanced degrees in theology, education, and finance and has held several leadership positions in various faith-based organizations including church, higher education and international missions.

Rick is a native of Texas and met Thelma on his first assignment in Arizona. They were married in 1982 and have three sons, Stephen, Michael, and David.

He enjoys boating, shooting and golf when he gets the chance, but most of all spending time with his family, especially their five grandchildren. He also appreciates a cup a joe from his French press.
