He graduated from Southwestern Assemblies of God University in 1992 with a Bachelor's Degree in Cross Cultural Ministries and a minor in Church Ministries. In 1995, he was ordained as an Assemblies of God Minister. Following God's calling, he ministered to youth and college students in Texas, Montana, and Florida, until God called him and his family to plant New Day Church in 2005. He is experienced in all areas of ministry and has a heart for revival. Pastor Ricky aims to lead the congregation by the leading of the Holy Spirit. Each sermon is a fresh word from the Lord.


Pastor Ricky and Joni met at Southwestern and married in 1992. From an early age, Joni was filled with the Holy Spirit and began serving in ministry with her family. After attending Southwestern, she graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Inter-Disciplinary Studies.
