Meet Rick

In September 2010 after 16 years working as a criminal defense attorney, God turned my life upside down when I joined Watermark staff leading our international ministry efforts. That change in vocation was the final leg of a four year journey God led me and my family on following my first trip to Congo in 2007 where I met a bunch of Congolese lawyers who were trying to live out Ephesians 2:10 in a way that amazed me.

I was born and raised in Georgia, but moved to Texas to attend college at Baylor and never went back home much to my mom’s dismay. Michele and I married and have three sons: Will, Ryan, and Ben. As a family we spend a lot time hitting balls and attending sporting events. Our favorite things to do are go watch a college football or Rangers game.

My greatest joy in ministry is watching folks go from consumers of church, who think it is all about them, to disciplers of men and women who realize it is all about others. The “Good News” and the “good works” should always go hand in hand. God called us to be “His hands and feet” by caring for widows, orphans, and anyone else who is lacking by meeting not just the spiritual needs, but the physical and emotional needs as well.
