Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Minister of Music
Dick graduated from Palm Beach Atlantic with a BA in Sacred Music. He responded to God’s call to the ministry of worship as he was attending community college, studying for law enforcement.
He is married to Valerie, also a south Florida native, whom he met while in high school. Son Mathew and daughter Amy worked alongside their dad as they grew to adulthood. They now serve the Lord in their areas of giftedness in the performing arts.
He derives great satisfaction from being a mentor of young leaders, regardless of their area of giftedness. He believes that everyone can share in the joy of worship. Dick is energized by time spent with people he loves – the people of God , his wife, his adult children, their spouses, and grandchildren. If you want to see Dick smile, ask him “How’s Aidan these days?”
Minister of Education & Administration
Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
Master of Divinity in Christian Education from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
