Director for Youth, Children’s and Families
Rick was born and raised on the South NSW Coast. His first job was working on his family’s dairy farm in Bega. AS a youth he loved being involved in Pathfinders and local church youth ministry. At 23 he spent a year volunteering in youth ministry in the Tasmanian Conference and it was there he met his wife, Libby. He loved working in youth ministry and eventually went on to complete a degree in Theology and Ministry. He’s been employed in the Adventist Church since 2010 as a local church pastor, associate youth director and youth director. Rick and Libby have three children, Giles, Heidi and Hayden. Rick is passionate to see young people make a commitment to following Jesus and living it out wherever God has planted them. Rick loves being back in his home Conference of South NSW.
Fave verse: Proverbs 3:5,6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
