Rick started working for BMW Manufacturing in 1995. His burden was to help people, but he found himself on a production line with two Bible degrees. Rather than thanking God for His provision, he was discontented, which led to grumbling and complaining about what he was doing.
The Lord convicted him of his sin, and he repented. The next day, he found a Bible study in the plant, and within a week, he was leading it. The Lord led him to his current church, and they hired him as the part-time counseling director. He finished his MABC with The Master’s University and left BMW in 2000 to enter full-time ministry. Listen to the podcast, as Rick takes you on the twists and turns of this miraculous story.
Rick launched the Life Over Coffee global training network in 2008 to bring hope and help for you and others by creating resources that spark conversations for transformation. His primary responsibilities are resource creation and leadership development, which he does through speaking, writing, podcasting, and educating.
In 1990 he earned a BA in Theology and, in 1991, a BS in Education. In 1993, he received his ordination into Christian ministry, and in 2000 he graduated with an MA in Counseling from The Master’s University. In 2006 he was recognized as a Fellow of the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC).
