About Rich
  • Education: I attended the Criswell College in Dallas, TX where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies. I graduated in the Spring of 2004 with honors.
  • Experience: I surrendered to the ministry in 1998 and served as pastoral intern for a short time at Countyline Baptist, Athens TX, where I was licensed to the ministry. I was then called to Faith Community Baptist, Mabank TX, where I served as Music and Youth Minister for three years. I was then called to Cornerstone Baptist, Athens TX where I served as Pastor for two years while I finished college. Then I was called to Southwood Baptist, in Oklahoma City OK as Senior Pastor. The church is now known as Mosaic Church.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Every pastor has his own style. I only write outlines because that is what I use to preach. I hope that the outlines I submit might be useful to someone else looking for a little help or direction in a particular passage. Obviously I like some better than others but hey, you can’t knock one out of the park every time you step up to the plate. The results are God’s job, I just have to keep swinging.
  • Family: I have been married since November of 1988 to a wonderful wife who was also my High School sweetheart. We have 4 beautiful and diverse children.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: They have chosen to be members everywhere I have pastored and have often followed up with questions after a sermon. They say they really enjoy them. Of course they are likely biased.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She is very supportive and honest. Generally she gives me very positive and affirming feedback. However she does not hesitate to tell me when I have lingered too long on a particular point.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: The mind can only absorb what the seat can endure.
  • Books that have had an impact: Through Gates of Splendor, Elisabeth Elliot Just about anything by C.S. Lewis Raising a Modern Day Knight, Robert Lewis The Five Love Languages, Gary Chapman The Complete Works of Francis Schaeffer Simple Church, Thom Rainer & Eric Geiger An Unstoppable Force, Erwin McManus 90 Minutes in Heaven, Don Piper
  • Hobbies: I enjoy golf, fishing and wood working.

    This sermon looks at Pauls obedience as the Lord sought to direct him.

    When it comes to doing the will of God… Our intentions are not good enough. v.6 Here Paul and his companions clearly intended to go into Asia to preach the gospel. But intentions alone were not sufficient. Certainly their intentions were noble and even right but for whatever reason they were more

  • This Far And No More

    This sermon looks at the dangers of unforgiveness.

    Too often we allow little things that take place to hinder our relationships with our Christian brothers and sisters. That is exactly what we see here in the ministry of Paul when he draws an imaginary line in the sand with regard to John Mark. Un-forgiveness Hinders… 1. Our Walk v. 38 – Any more

  • You Are Free Indeed

    based on 9 ratings

    This sermon is about the response that came from the Jerusalem Council.

    The Christian brothers and sisters at Antioch had good reason to rejoice. They had been at the center of a great controversy concerning what they need to do to be saved. There were some who had set high requirements for these Gentile converts to Christ. However after much debate and prayer the more

  • When Jesus Said "It Is Finished", He Meant It!

    Contributed on Jul 7, 2005
    based on 33 ratings

    This sermon looks at three things we risk losing if we don’t recognize and affirm the sufficiency of Jesus sacrifice alone for our salvation.

    So many times we have trouble realizing the full impact of something that has taken place. Historically we have seen it happen time and time again. Here are two examples that each of us can relate to. When Henry Ford went to a bank to seek a loan to begin his automobile company the banker told more

  • Attributes To Admire

    Contributed on Jun 14, 2005
    based on 28 ratings

    This sermon identifies four attributes worth admiration in Paul and Barnabas. These same attributes ought to be present in us as fathers.

    Admiration is an interesting thing. The dictionary defines it as “a feeling of pleasure, wonder and approval”. I think that most men want their children to admire them in one sense or another. I mean I want my children to take pleasure in me as their father, I want them to have a sense of wonder more
