About the Author:
Rick was born in New Hampshire and moved to Vermont at the age of 6 months, and has been a lifetime Vermont resident for most of his life. After graduating from high school in June 1964, he enlisted in the US Air Force, serving in Texas, Georgia, and Germany. He was honorably discharged in 1968 and served two more years in the Air Force Reserves. In brief, his life after the military took a turn toward playing in several rock bands, (he was a drummer), drugs, and alcohol. This lifestyle continued for another 13 years until God supernaturally intervened in Rick’s life. In his recently published book One Life to Give, Rick shares in more depth of his life with the intent of showing the reader how powerfully God can and will change a person’s life if he or she is willing.
Rick was saved on March 21st, 1983 and instantly delivered from 13 years of drug and alcohol addictions through the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In Rick’s own words, “It was also the same gospel that forgave me of all my sins through the Blood of Jesus, and all bitterness, hatred, and unforgiveness in my heart left immediately as well. Right after my salvation experience, I had, and still do, have a fire of desire to see others saved and set free by the same gospel which saved me.”
Rick and his wife Faith are the co-founders of Renewed Life in Jesus Church which was established in 1986 in Rockingham, Vermont. He was ordained into the ministry on November 18th 1990 and served as the co-pastor until April 1998. He became the senior pastor then and still serves today in that capacity. His heart's desire is to see people from all walks of life, with all kinds of problems and issues, sicknesses and diseases brought willingly to the Cross of Christ for healing, deliverance and restoration. Through Renewed Life in Jesus Church, Rick is and always has been very much involved with supporting missionaries and sending missionaries nearly every year since 1991, (including himself), into foreign countries including Eastern Europe, Kenya Africa, the Philippines, and India.
