Rick has been our pastor since mid-September 2007.


Previously he served United Methodist churches in the New York Annual Conference from 1974 to 2007. 

His interests range far and wide, including scripture, spirituality, peace, justice, science, theology, and church history. He served in the Peace Corps in Latin America, and avidly continues to follow events there in church and society, with a special interest in Colombian Methodism.

His roots in Methodism go back to the days of the early circuit riders. He is the husband of a pastor and the father of three daughters.
