Director of Financial Discipleship
Rick joined the MB Foundation team in August 2022. He received his BA degree with a dual major in Bible and Youth Ministry from Sterling College and MDiv degree from Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary. For more than 30 years he served as a pastor of mostly MB churches in Illinois, California, Oklahoma, Kansas, Washington, Oregon, and North Dakota. Rick served as a church consultant with Church Resource Ministries for three years. Most recently he served more than nine years in the Central District as their District Minister. He loves working with churches and individuals going through seasons of transition, believing them to be fruitful times of God led spiritual growth. His experience working with churches and pastors provides him the ability to direct our LeadGen, Thrive, Financial Health, and Championing Biblical Stewardship programs.
Rick and his wife Esther look forward to being part of a MB church family as they serve in Hillsboro. They have four adult children, Melinda (Iowa), Tanya (deceased), Craig (Alaska), and Matt (Washington). They have three grandchildren, Inessa, Elijah, and Gabrielle. Rick and Esther enjoy watching British mystery shows, cooking and eating Pakistani and Mexican food, yard work, spending time with family, and travel.
