Richard and his wife Ann have been attending harvest since January of 2012. Together they serve in our Biblical Soul Care ministry and lead a Life Group that focuses on teaching Biblical Soul Care. Ann is also involved in our Wife of Noble Character (WONC) ministry here at Harvest.
Richard grew up in Orangevill, Illinois. He says that, "even though my wife grew up on a farm and her family always referred to me as a "town boy,"my first job was cleaning hog pens for $2 an hour." He eventually attended the University of Illinois where he met Ann. He has lived in Rockford for 30 of the last 32 years. He is currently working as a Mechanical Engineer at the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Plant in Belvidere. They have 2 Daughters: Emily attends Hillsdale College and Molly is a student at Belvidere North High School.
