Pastor Rick underwent a profound transformation at the age of 24, captivated by the powerful melodies of Metallica in September 1994. Recognizing the imperative need to cast aside his former way of life, he embraced a newfound purpose, spiritual values, and faith. This pivotal second chance ignited a momentum in Pastor Rick's journey, compelling him to dedicate himself to giving back to those ensnared in cycles of destructive behavior.
In these challenging times, Pastor Rick stands as a dedicated servant leader, providing guidance not only locally but also on an international scale. He assumes the role of Pastor at Iglesia Crosspoint, a bilingual church in Bellaire, Texas, and serves as a Staff Evangelist at West University Baptist Church. Additionally, he holds the esteemed titles of John Maxwell Certified Life Coach and Spiritual Motivator. Beyond the classroom, Pastor Rick embodies the values he imparts.
The 1st Stone Recovery Support Group stands as a robust 12-week life intervention program.
