    As the Executive Director, Rick spends much of his time focused on leading a ministry that is highly motivated to reach every lost teenager they encounter with the Good News of Jesus Christ.   

    For Rick, on a daily basis, that looks like lots of meetings, phone call, networking and most certainly fundraising.  But even after 30 years Rick’s passion and zeal to see teens come to know Christ is still paramount to everything he does.
