Rich is a graduate of Anderson Univ. in Anderson, IN, where he majored in Broadcast Communications. He has been married to his wife, Sandy, since September, 1986, and they have five adult children and four grandchildren. He has been a Chicago sports fan since childhood and really loves the Cubs, Bears, Blackhawks and Bulls. He enjoys music (many different styles), traveling, and reading about history - especially church history.
Rich has been Worship Leader at Highland Nazarene since 2010. He and his family came to our church back in 2003 and have grown to love the people here. He also led worship for 7 years at First Church of God in Munster. His passion for worship goes beyond just music - it's all about connecting with God in every area of life; allowing Him to change us, make us new, and then to use our talents and abilities for His glory.
