River of God
Hailing originally from Minnesota, Rick has resided among the Californians for 35 years. He began writing songs at age 17 but looks back on those efforts now as "mostly mush". Though he finds no end of growth within the church, Rick admits that "There's not a friend I have who is not a better Christian than I. So I tell what truth I have and leave it at that." By vocation, Rick is a drug counselor which, as was heard in group recently, 'is not about this or that; it's all about God'. Rick has been married to Charlene for 21 years. They have two sons, Carl and Daniel, neither of whom believe in golden gophers.
