Prior to that, they served as Children's Pastors and Executive Pastors at Mount Hope Church in Lansing, MI; Appleton First Assembly in Appleton, Wisconsin; Christian Life Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL; and Grand Rapids First in Grand Rapids, MI.
Both Pastor Rich and Linda takes worship and preaching very seriously, spending the first hours of their day focused on Bible study. Pastor Rich is best described as a strong Bible based preacher with a unique way of bringing in humor to make a point. He continues to stoke a burning desire to lead a church exactly like Hickory Ridge Community Church where biblical views arenot only embraced but also encouraged, with members who care about the needs of those around them, and who want to connect others to the body of Christ.
Pastors Rich and Pastor Linda are ordained ministers with the Assemblies of God. They have been happily married for 38 years, have 2 adult (and their spouses) children, Nicole & Glenn Briggs and Jared & Lana La Belle. They have 4 beautiful grandchildren, Preston, Pierce, Bailey and Reagan with one more on the way!
