Rick and Julie heard the call from God in their late 50's when they were finishing their secular jobs. Rick was trained in finance and Julie was trained as an Ocupational Therapist. They had participated in several mission trips with various agencies seeking to discern God's will for their call prior to deciding to join e 3 Partners based in Plano, Texas.
Rick and Julie have been non-resident missionaries to Punjab, India since 2015. They manage a church planting multiplication strategy with their Indian partner. This strategy includes training believers on how to share the Gospel, pastoral training on how to manage and shepherd house church leaders and evangelism to those who have never heard of Jesus Christ.
They accomplish this by taking trams of Americans to India for training trips and by doing ritual trips working with Indian pastors. they have witnessed God moving in an extraordinary way in Punjab, with the number of replicating house churches exploding over the past 8 years.
Rick and Julie have three adult children and two grandchildren and live in Newton, New Hampshire.
