Richard Gordon

Senior Pastor

Pastor Richard and his wife Beth are originally from the Pacific Northwest and have two grown children and four grandchildren.

Richard has been a full-time pastor since the mid-nineties after teaching at a community college for two decades.

Shortly after being called into full time ministry, Richard enrolled at Faith Seminary in Tacoma Washington and graduated in 2005 with a Master of Theological Studies. He served at two churches in the Pacific Northwest as an Associate pastor before moving to the Midwest.

Having grown up at an Evangelical Covenant Churches in the Seattle area Richard is very rooted in God’s Word, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He was ordained into the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) in 2014.

Richard became the interim Pastor of Living Springs in September of 2019, officially being called as Senior Pastor in June of 2020.

Richard and his wife Beth both enjoy biking, kayaking and hiking and especially being home together. Spending time with family or friends is also a highly valued activity.

We have found ourselves in love with the Midwest with its down to earth culture and style. We are greatly enjoying being part of the family of Living Springs Covenant Church.
