Growing up in a pastor’s home, Rich spent a lot of time in church. After graduating from Valley Forge Christian College in 1992, he married Jodi, his college sweetheart, a month later. They have been happily married now for 25 years, and have two beautiful girls, JoLyn and Jacki.
For twenty years, Rich served in several churches in MI, NJ, and PA as a student ministries pastor. In 2008, he and Jodi felt the call to plant a church in the city of Pittsburgh. After serving Element Church for 7 years, Rich and Jodi have recently followed God’s call back to Philadelphia to the church they first served in as youth pastors after they graduated from college. They are in the process of revitalizing that church and have reintroduced it to the community of Roxborough as HighPointe Church.
More recently, Rich has started HighPointe Productions, a printing enterprise that focuses on offering quality print work at affordable prices. In addition to serving area corporate printing needs, they also offer significant discounts to churches, missionaries, and other non-profit organizations.
