Pastor Rick serves as the Youth Pastor at CCSFS and has a heart to see young people know of God’s love and care for them. He also seeks to train them to develop healthy habits – engaging them in the Word, worship, prayer, and fellowship with one another – that are conducive to a lifelong relationship with the Lord.
In June of 2005, Rick married his wife, Minh. Three years later he completed a law degree at Southwestern University and began working in the legal field.
In 2013, during a mid-week service here at CCSFS, he gave his life to the Lord. After accepting Christ, he sought out opportunities for spiritual growth. As a result, he completed several men’s discipleship programs, including the School of Ministry.
Together he and Minh have served in the youth ministry for the past three years as teachers, mentors, and activity directors. In July of 2018, Rick was called to ministry as the full-time youth pastor.
In his free time, he enjoys spending time with Minh and their family. He also enjoys learning martial arts.
