Richard Meeks

Interim Pastor

Richard sensed God’s call into the ministry in the sixth grade.  He preached his first sermon in the eighth grade at a downtown mission in Portland, Oregon, using Acts 10:34-35 as his text. Following his graduation from High School, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and served honorably.

Richard has 40 years of ministry experience, having served as a pastor of local churches, a District Superintendent, and a denominational leader in The Wesleyan Church.  For a season, he was also a member of a national leadership team working with multiple denominations in church revitalization.  He is currently the Director of Leader Development for the Greater Ohio District, where he facilitates and coaches Level UP Leadership and leads the G3:28 Project.  He and his wife, Crystal, have three children – each with families of their own, who have given them eight grandchildren.
