“Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing.”
Richard has been in the music ministry for more than twenty-five years. He states the following about his love for music and worship, “Worship is the expression of love, honor, and devotion to the Lord, and music in the primary tool for such expression. Our goal for each service is that, when the time comes for the preaching of the Word of God, our hearts are hungry to receive it with a renewed longing for more of Him.” Richard joined the Pope Drive staff in June 2010 and has brought a refreshing spirit of genuine worship through the blending of contemporary praise choruses, praise and worship anthems, and traditional hymns. Second only to his devotion to the Lord is Richard’s devotion to his family. Richard and his wife, Kim, were married in 1986 and have two children and two grandsons.
