"Rick did a great job at speaking for our luncheon. He was personable and the men really got to know him. Rick was also up front with men as he challenged them to be the fathers that God has called them to be. I left feeling like Rick had set the table for us in our work with men."

Roger Wernette
The Gathering of Men

"Rick spoke at our luncheon in Tyler and did a fantastic job! Every man needs to hear his message!! Whether a father or father-figure, we all have an earthly father and most definitely a Heavenly Father. His ministry will touch everyone - Five Star recommendation!"

Terry Bates - Director, Oilfield Christian Fellowship - Tyler, Texas
