Rick and his wife, Susan, have taken churches from 35 to 250, 250 to 550, 600 to 2000 and 1300 to 4000. The expansion of Concord First Assembly in North Carolina included the establishing of seven additional campuses. He’s also served as the NCAG Assistant Superintendent, Chairman of Convoy of Hope’s National Pastor’s Commission, and on the boards of Priority One Mission and the National Leadership and Structural Working Group Committee. 


He is married to Susan (Hastie) Ross and they have two children, Derrick and wife Dana, and Karissa and husband Seth. Their three grandchildren, Madison, Kennedy, and Lincoln, are the joy of their hearts.
