Rick Brown

Co-Senior Pastor

God, please forgive me for all the wicked stuff I’ve been doing. So began the spiritual journey of a desperate bull rider from Filer, Idaho. Rick says he was the least likely person to end up a pastor, yet the Lord had a calling on the life of this rodeo cowboy. Living a hard life of promiscuity, substance abuse, violence, and crime, Rick learned to live with a survival mentality, fending for himself through his family’s constant moves and brokenness. Partying hard through his teen years, he eventually realized his need for a Savior after failing to fill the deep void in his life. One Sunday afternoon, alone and half-drunk, he got down on his knees and cried out to the Lord for forgiveness. That simple prayer marked the beginning of a radical change in Rick’s life. Rick married his high school sweetheart, Tammy in 1985 and the couple are proud parents of two grown children and two grandchildren.
