Rick's ministry purpose is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the world through the outlets of music, bible teaching, writing, and spiritual gifts all drenched and pouring out from prayer.  Hence, he utilizes several ministry opportunities to share what God has inspired within him.  Of course there is Rick 's music, which is the outlet for God to move upon his people through unique musical sound and touching lyrics.  But Rick also preaches and teaches in various churches and denominations across America. God has made numerous promises throughout His word and Rick’s passion is to make God’s people aware of these promises and to encourage them to seek after them for themselves. Therefore, Rick specifically teaches how God’s promises are relevant for us today and how we can do our part to ensure God fulfills His promises in our lives.

 

In addition to Rick's music, further aspects of Rick's ministry are featured below:

PREACHING:

Rick is a credentialed minister with the Assemblies of God. It is Rick’s priority to be accountable to and under the authority of the local pastor where ever he ministers, since he is your guest to serve and to bless you in any way he can.  In addition to ministering in church settings, Rick is also available to minister at banquets, camp meetings, conferences, conventions, festivals, retreats etc…

"My message and my preaching were not with wise and

persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power,"

1-Corinthians 2:4

PRAYER:

Every ministry must be bathed in the power of prayer to be effective  Praying for one another is a means to expand the power of ministry.  Of course you can pray specifically for Rick’s ministry by dedicating yourself to specific days and times of prayer and you can also submit prayer requests for Rick to bring before God on your behalf.  Prayer changes things but mostly it changes us, therefore by praying for each other, we both become changed and blessed by the results of the effective prayers of God’s righteous people.

 

"Therefore confess your sins to each other

and pray for each other so that you may be healed.

The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective."

James 5:16

These healing retreats are held across America and God shows up to minister to His people in various healing ways.
