Richard was born in Iowa, raised in California, and went to seminary in Kentucky. He served churches in Kansas City, Missouri and in Blue Earth, Minnesota. Richard has lived in Tecumseh for 27 years, which makes it the longest time he's ever lived in any one place. He wouldn't have it any other way, because this has been where God wants him to be.
