Meet the Team
The church is a family that serves together. We are lead and served by many, but here are a few of the friendly faces that serve and lead our church family.
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.
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. In February of 2015 Richard was called by Grandview Covenant Church of Larchwood Iowa to be their Senior Pastor. Richard is presently serving as the Interim Pastor of Living Springs Covenant Church in Brandon South Dakota.
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 greatly enjoying being part of the family of Living Springs Covenant Church.”
