Richard and Beverly live in Charlotte, NC and have been married 33 years. They have 3 children and three grandchildren.
Richard has been a worship pastor, an executive pastor, and a church planter for his entire ministry career. He holds a Ph.D. in Musicology from the Eastman School of Music and has been an adjunct professor in music at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte. The thing that really jazzes him is to be part of a radical community that wants to change the world for Jesus.
Beverly: singer, former music teacher, concierge, preschool teacher, other widely varied jobs, loves to find new ways to make old things bloom. Church planting is all about getting to watch God make old things new.
The thing that really excites Richard and Beverly about being the France and Italy Connectors for Communitas is the chance to be involved in so many gifted people's lives as pastors, encouragers, and friends.
