It is with both a heavy heart and understanding for God’s greater plans that we bid farewell to Pastor Rick and Judy. Pastor Rick has been a faithful and enthusiastic leader at Gloria Dei for the last five years. We will all miss his commitment to social justice and his love for urban ministry. His impassioned sermons have been a call to serve those around us in need. We give thanks for Pastor Rick’s fresh ideas as well as the ability to share his experience and knowledge from his pre-pastor years spent in the corporate world. He has been a gentle steward of our resources – explaining, tracking, and offering guidance for our financial decision making. God has also blessed us with Judy who has tirelessly shared her gifts coordinating and organizing and even reviving “The Reminder” this year! Their steadfast commitment to the church and personal friendship has blessed us beyond measure.
We know that no matter where Pastor Rick and Judy may roam in the call of ministry, they will always have a home at Gloria Dei.
Peace and Blessings,
