I’m a pastor, and I was in a dangerous place, but when I sought counsel and help through Rick’s ministry, the Lord radically transformed my life and ministry! The DE program has helped me the most as a Christian, as a pastor, as a father, and as a husband! – Doug Graham (Ohio)
After two Christian counselors had not been able to help, I came to this ministry. Within a month I knew of two strongholds and had a plan to overcome each. I was so impressed that I enrolled in his Distance Education, Self-Paced Study Course. – Julie Hansen (Washington)
Rick’s ministry has been an answer to prayer. After years of discipling women, I became increasingly burdened in wanting to go deeper in the care and counsel I was currently giving. My desire was for some training that would further equip me to offer real, practical, and biblical solutions to help these women better. Then I came across this ministry. The Mastermind Program was exactly what I had been looking for! The training I’ve received through Rick’s program has given me the tools I need so I can better fulfill my role in the body of Christ. – Chris O’Donnell (Maryland)
