Rick Brown brings us a message from God’s Word each week as the Preaching Minister at ChristBridge Fellowship. He works closely with the elders to build the leadership base of the church and to assist in keeping the church on track with the mission, vision and values God has placed within this group of believers. He has been with the church since February of 1999. As Lead Pastor for ChristBridge Fellowship Rick’s primary role is to preach Jesus and work alongside other leaders to equip people for ministry. Rick has served as a Youth Pastor and Associate Pastor for churches in New Orleans, San Angelo, Denver, and Tyler before coming to Tomball. Rick has a Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies and a Master of Divinity Degree (although he is still trying to perfect divinity candy). He has previously augmented his classroom studies with practical learning with Max Lucado, Lynn Anderson of Hope Network Ministries, and Jim Herrington of Leadership Network.An avid Third Day fan, Rick also enjoys working out, tennis, hitting the beach, and spending time in the Rockies.
He mostly enjoys spending time with his wife Karen. Karen has recently retired from 19 years serving as the Director of JOY School. Karen is beginning a business of her own to supply substitute teachers to the preschool industry, as well as serving as a consultant for preschools. She and Rick work closely together in ministry, especially having people in their homes to help disciple in the faith.
They both enjoy time with their two sons, Kris and Taylor. Oh, and there’s Baylee, their Malshi.
