As Senior Pastor, Richard directs and leads the church staff and works with leadership development within the church. He loves to preach and teach the faith. He believes that the church is at its best when it is grounded in worship, growing in faith and fellowship, and committed to serving the needs of the community and world. When God's people come together around a common cause the light of Christ shines bright, and lives are transformed. That's what makes serving at Olive Branch such a Joy!
