Images and bio coming soon!
Richard, who prefers to be called Rich, is a keyboardist and guitarist who served as Minister of Music for 22 years at Pentecostal Temple under the leadership of Pastor Michael Parsons in Midland, MI. He relocated to Central Oregon in 2013 after having retired after 38 years in an Information Technology career with The Dow Chemical Company. He is the music director for Redmond Heights Pentecostals and oversees the sound and media departments as well. He also serves on the church board of directors.
Growing up in Northern California, he studied Music Theory and received his Bachelor Degree in Mathematics from California State University, Sacramento. He has a Degree in Recording Arts from Los Medanos College (Pittsburg, CA) and also taught private music lessons for 8 years.
In addition to working with artists such as Steve Richardson, Mark Condon, Nancy Grandquist, and others, highlights of his career include performing with the Midland Symphony Orchestra at a gospel concert featuring Donna McElroy, being highlighted in a Hammond Festival, featuring 3 Hammond organs, and led a choir clinic in Milano, Italy, (for a church that had been established by a missionary while he was simultaneously working for his employer The Dow Chemical).
Favorite Scripture: “Jesus said, “If I want him to live until I come again, what’s that to you? You—follow me.” (John 21:22, MSG)
Richard shares his life with Victoria Lay, his wife of 41 years. Together they raised two children, Christina (Roy Raposo) and Andrew, 5 grandchildren, 6 chickens, 2 llamas and 1 dog. In his spare time, you can find him working on a building project at his home. One of things he loves about Central Oregon is his love for a good cup of coffee.
