Rick is a native of Grand Rapids, Michigan. He has experienced a multitude of careers over the years, including Emergency Medical Services, Law Enforcement, Personal Protection (bodyguard), Project Management, Commercial Construction, and Residential Building.

As his family has settled into the area, Rick has prayerfully been pursuing God's next steps in his life, and the door opened for him to come on staff at Five Stones. He is excited to be serving at Five Stones, getting to know people, and building community.
In his free time, Rick enjoys anything outdoors, including mountain biking, hiking, fishing, camping, and more. He also loves spending time with his wife, daughters, and his crazy sidekick German Shepherd Zeke.
