Church Leadership

The Calvary Nipomo Team

Lead Pastor & Elder

Rick and his wife Tina have lived in Nipomo since 1988 and have attended Calvary Nipomo since its inception in 1995.  Rick gave his life to the Lord as a teen but later surrendered his life completely after recognizing he was unable to 'clean up his act' in his own strength. Rick saw that his abuse of alcohol was ruining his family & life and through the teaching of The Word at Calvary Nipomo, Rick saw and accepted God’s grace. Rick's life was utterly transformed by the power of Jesus through his new devotion and total surrender to his Savior.

Rick began serving at the church, then later as the Youth Pastor & Assistant Pastor and has been Senior Pastor since 1999. 

Rick and Tina have 3 sons and 11 grandchildren.
