Retired colonel, army nurse officer, nursing professor at OHSU, ICU nurse, author, speaker, husband, and father, this guy’s done it all! Rick even moonlighted as a youth pastor, back when he had hair.
Rick now serves as an advisor to our senior and executive pastors. He is the secretary to the church board and chairperson of the personnel committee while also serving as a member of the Executive ad hoc committee and Vision ad hoc committee. On Sunday mornings, he teaches a class here at ENC.
A high achiever, Rick has earned degrees from the University of Oregon, the University of San Diego, and has a PhD in Nursing Science from the University of Texas at Austin.
Rick and his wife, Nancy, have 2 kids and 2 grandkids who are responsible for persuading Rick and Nancy to relocate to Idaho. The couple enjoys spending time with their family and volunteer grant writing for nonprofits together. Rick also loves wake surfing but, probably not in Idaho.
