Richard Jr. 1977
First ten years bumping around in different schools, working in the steel mills of Chicago area and first wife. In 1982, divorced and alone I returned to my first love, Jesus Christ. The following year I married my wife of 39 years, went back to school, ran my own business for 20 years and in 99 went back to school again and entered the ministry. In 2002 I began to pastor a church in Wallace SC. In 2005 I sold the business and entered full time ministry and was ordained in 06. Later that year I accepted an offer to a Nazarene Church in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate NY. In Feb. of 2017 I accepted a Nazarene Church in Archer Florida, just 11 miles SW of Gainesville.
Life has been tough, but through it all I am so glad that I gave my life to God and I am now doing what I was suppose to do from day one.
