Estudio Bíblico en español - Miércoles a las 6:30pm
Servicio de Adoración en español - Domingos a las 11:00am
Nuestro propósito en Ministerio Hispano en The Grace Place es la transmitir el Evangelio de Nuestro Señor Jesucristo, alcanzando a todas las personas de habla Hispana dentro condado de Martin County, dando a conocer el amor y la paz que solo nuestro Dios es capaz de ofrecernos si ponemos nuestra vida en sus manos.
Con nuestros Estudios Bíblicos queremos hacer ver que la Biblia no es un libro religioso que un grupo de personas compiló. Es un libro que proviene de Dios mismo como dice 2 Timoteo 3:16: “Toda la Escritura es inspirada por Dios y es útil para enseñarnos lo que es verdad y para hacernos ver lo que está mal en nuestra vida. Nos corrige cuando estamos equivocados y nos enseña a hacer lo correcto.”

Bible Study in Spanish – Wednesdays at 6:30pm
Worship Service in Spanish – Sundays at 11:00am
Our purpose in Hispanic Ministry at The Grace Place is to share the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ, reaching all Spanish-speaking people within Martin County, making known the love and peace that only our God is able to offer us if we put our life in his hands.
With our Biblical Studies, we want to show that the Bible is not a religious book that a group of people compiled. It is a book that comes from God himself. 2 Timothy 3:16 says, “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us see what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.”

Pastor Rick’s ministry journey began as a senior in high school when, after making a personal commitment to Jesus Christ, he became aware that God had a special calling and purpose for his life – to serve as a pastor of a local church. Since coming to the Grace Place in 1993, Rick has a compelling awareness that God has him right where he called him to be. He believes that each of his previous ministry experiences up to this point have been part of God’s preparation process to serve this great church.
“I believe that one of the primary reasons that I am on this earth is the serve as the Senior Pastor of the Grace Place Church. There are many things that God can call us to do in ministry, but I believe that my primary calling and purpose in life is to serve this church. I do not see what I do as a job. I see it as my primary purpose and calling in life.”
Since graduating from Bible College in 1979, Pastor Rick has served four churches in Michigan, Ohio, and Alabama before coming to serve as senior pastor of The Grace Place Community Church in 1993. Pastor Rick has an M.A. in Ministry from Moody Graduate School in Chicago. His primary ministry focus is to take biblical truth and apply it through preaching and teaching in practical and relevant ways to impact the lives of seekers and believers. He also believes it is extremely important to develop ministries that influence and impact the whole family.
“One of our objectives at the Grace Place is to provide a meaningful life-changing ministry to the entire family. We place a high priority not only on our weekend services but also on our GraceKids ministry, Student Ministries, Young Adults, Small Groups, Celebrate Recovery and Ministry to Singles. All of our ministries are constantly in the state of development, re-evaluation, and fine-tuning. To find out more about our ministries and our ministry leaders please explore our Staff Page.”
Rick and his wife Karon have been married since August 1974. For their entire ministry journey, Karon has been a true partner in ministry serving in a variety of capacities in the various churches they have pastored. Rick and Karon have two sons and four grandkids. Rick’s primary interests outside of our church are his grandchildren, Ryan, Talia, Bentley, and Karlie. In fact, he has said many times that his favorite people in the world are his grandchildren and his favorite title is “Papa”.
Rick is a car buff and loves to cruise in his restored 1990 GMC pickup truck. In fact, as he says, “My idea of a symphony is 8 cylinders in perfect harmony.” Both he and Karon also enjoy recharging and spending time in their place in Northeast Alabama. Rick enjoys doing just about anything outdoors including fishing and hunting.
One of his life verses is Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. “
As the pastor of The Grace Place “I personally welcome you to consider becoming part of the Grace Place family. On the first Sunday of each month we have our First Connection Luncheon which enables my wife Karon and I to get better acquainted with you and with other recent attendees of the church. Every three months I teach two membership classes, the first is an introduction to The Grace Place Church and in that class I lay out our vision, church DNA and a brief overview of what God has been doing in this part of His Kingdom since 1993. The second class is where you have the opportunity to officially join The Grace Place Church and find the right place to utilize your spiritual and God-given talents to serve in one of our ministries. Welcome to The Grace Place Church, where we celebrate God’s Grace every day! – Pastor Rick
