Pastor Rick was raised in Kansas, schooled in California, and worked in business in New York. He and Chandra were married in 1983 and went into ministry after seminary at Denver Seminary. They have three married children and three grandchildren: Andy, Bonnie (Jude & Lucy), Greg & Molly (Frances), Emily & Andrew. Rick has pastored in Colorado, New York, and most recently for 22 years in Washington State. He is now a partner with Interim Pastor Ministries. He has joined our staff to help guide our church family as we move forward to serve the Lord in the Corvallis community and the world. His passions are teaching God’s Word, the ministry of the local church, and his family.

Rick enjoys Bible study, games, hiking, reading, writing, and above all, spending time with his wife, kids, and grandkids.
