Lead Pastor for Preaching and Vision
Pastor Rick has been serving First Baptist Church as the lead pastor for about 8 years. Pastor Rick grew up in Haverhill, and after completing seminary felt the Lord's calling to return and minister to his hometown. He loves to travel the world whenever possible; watch and play sports, especially watching the Pats and playing basketball; read good books and spend time with his wife and two kids. His burning desire is to see the church deeply in love with Jesus, spreading the fame of His Name in the community and throughout the globe.
Pastor Rick graduated from Gordon College (B.A.) and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (M.Div), and holds a doctorate degree in preaching from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (D.Min). He's half-Korean and half Irish-Swedish and loves humor, sometimes a little too much.
He is the author of the books "How to Find a Church: Seven Steps to Becoming Part of a Spiritual Family" and "The Weight of Preaching: Heralding the Gospel of Grace"
