came and died for us?" Perhaps another way of asking the question is this: "...

Founding Pastor at Cuyahoga Valley Church. www.cvconline.org Encouraging young leaders to create environments that invite people to new life in Christ.
Introduction
Rick is currently serving as Founding Pastor and Pastor of Missional Living and Leadership Development at Cuyahoga Valley Church (CVC). Rick and his wife, Maryanne, along with one other couple started the church in 1987. God has graced CVC with approximately 2,000 attenders each weekend at 4 services. Rick says, "I thank God for the gifted staff and volunteers I serve with at CVC. Jesus has done great things for us. To Him alone be the glory." Before becoming a pastor, Rick served 4 years on staff of the FCA in Jacksonville, Florida. Rick graduated Summa Cum Laude from Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary in 1986. He was ordained by the Far Hills Church in Dayton, Ohio in 1987. A graduate of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, Rick was a 4-year letterman on the baseball team. He earned All-SEC honors 3 times as an outfielder. Rick was drafted by the Minnesota Twins and spent 5 years playing professional baseball in pursuit of his dream to make it to the major leagues. His dream now is to "encourage young leaders to create environments that invite people to new life in Christ." Rick is still in love with his wife, Maryanne. He enjoys spending time with his three sons, Alan, Ryan, and Evan. And he is the proud father-in-law of Joanna, Alan's bride, and the proud grandfather of their son born on 12/25/2010, Ethan.
