The Lord's Church In My Life
I was fortunate that someone shared with me the gospel of Christ while I was in high school. God granted me the time to be saved from my sins and I was able to lead my wife and family to the Lord. Through my travels, I have come to know and appreciate God's people and the Lord's church is everywhere worshiping and singing praises to His glory. He served the Kettering congregation over 10 years as a deacon.
Bro. Rich was appointed an elder after serving the congregation as a deacon since 1989. His greatest aim is to help the entire Kettering family in their faithful walk to heaven and to receive the blessings of eternal life from the only God of this universe.
