Meet Our Pastor


Pastor Rick and Jeanette have attended SLPC since 1991.  Rick felt God’s call to become a Pastor in 2007 after being the owner of a sign company for 25 years.  Rick and Jeanette were not strangers to the ministry.  They had worked in a bus ministry, helped to start a college and career Sunday school class, served as church treasurer and did evangelistic work with the Christian Motorcycle Association.   Rick started attending Davis College in the spring semester of 2008.  While there, the elders approached Rick to preach two Sundays a month while he continued his studies.  In the meantime, Rick felt led to start classes at Dubuque Theological Seminary to become a commissioned lay pastor in order to serve SLPC better.  He completed those courses in June of 2009.  He has since continued to take more college courses at Davis College.  The congregation of SLPC asked him to stay to be their pastor.  In September of 2010, he was commissioned to be a pastor.

Rick and Jeanette have two grown sons.  Their oldest, Jason has a beautiful wife Jessica and has given them their first grandchild, Seth James.  Jason has taken over the sign company.   Their youngest son Jeremy lives in Charlotte, NC and is an accountant.

Rick and Jeanette feel blessed to be able to serve their home church and minister to the community that they know so well and love so much.  They have a goal of working tirelessly and being used by God to bring the people of this congregation and community to a closer relationship with their Savior Jesus Christ. 

We are very richly blessed to have this couple serving God by becoming a bigger part of our church. They followed the leading of the Holy Spirit to serve at SLPC; and in the process have brought new life and programs into our church.
