We accidentally fell in love while ministering in the inner city during the summer of 1997. Fully intending to live out our days serving in downtown Denver, God’s plan redirected and relocated our hearts. In December of 2001, we moved overseas to help lead the campus ministry for Campus Crusade for Christ in North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. That work changed our lives forever.
Along the way, God added three energetic sons to our family. Rich III is 17. Joseph is 15, and David is 12. A rescued miniature Schnauzer named Stanley completed our family, so Kourtney holds her own as the sole female in our crew. We are definitely all works in progress, but our quest is that our family would be described by the words in our family motto.
Other phrases that might be applicable are a sports loving, Mexican food eating, dairy & gluten free cooking, soul hospitality practicing, never met a stranger, kind of family. Still happily serving with Cru, the sunny city of Orlando, Florida is currently our home base, although you will find parts of our hearts scattered around the globe.
