About Rick & Eileen
Rick and Eileen have been married for 50 wonderful years and have two adult children and one very special grandson.
In high school, Rick was invited to go to a Christian camp where he came to faith in Christ. While attending the University of South Florida, God burdened him about ministry. Eileen became a Christian at about the same time and also felt called to ministry. They both attended Florida Bible College, where they were married and set out for a life of carrying the message of salvation to others.
Together they started a gospel ministry to youth in the Philadelphia area. Almost simultaneously, Rick was drafted into the USMC. He received an early discharge to return to the youth ministry and a position as youth pastor of Grace Chapel in Havertown, PA. Grace Chapel helped him to graduate from Dallas Theological Seminary.
After seminary, Rick and Eileen served in a newly formed church called Calvary Fellowship Church. Rick then returned to teach at Florida Bible College, where Eileen received a degree in Biblical Education. After this, Rick accepted a position as Pastor of Evangelism at Church of the Open Door in York, PA. Eventually they returned and ministered once again at Calvary Fellowship Church. A highlight of this time of ministry was the development of a 50+ outreach that was designed to encourage baby boomers to retire and retool their lives for ministry and missions. A number have done that, including Rick and Eileen. They are excited to be a part of the GTN family and are looking to finishing strong for the Lord Jesus!
