Richard began working with the East Side congregation in 2017. Originally from the island of Jamaica, Richard moved to the US in 2016, where he married his wife, Shalyn. He is a graduate of the Jamaica School of Preaching and Biblical Studies, where he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies. As Youth Minister, Richard loves making strong bonds with the youth of our congregation. His greatest desire is to see them grow spiritually, physically, mentally, and socially. His goal is to SERVE (Submit to God, Exemplify Christ, Reach the Lost, Value others above self, Encourage the Weak) and teach our youth to do the same.
