Rich serves us as our Facilities Director. In this role, he oversees maintenance and renovations, church vehicle maintenance, and security personnel schedules. He had previously worked for his own architecture firm, Cornerstone Associates. He first came to The Moody Church in 1973 as “an unsaved fellow seeking friends,” and became a follower of Christ through the college-aged adults ministry. Rich encourages those who attend The Moody Church to become more involved by volunteering to serve as children’s ministry teachers, parking hosts, van drivers, or church caretakers. Regarding what he has learned about God’s character, Rich says, “Acceptance and forgiveness of so much by God because of His own sacrifice and patience, as we learn and grow as His children.” Rich’s hobbies include reading history, swimming, studying architecture, and taking short travel trips. He and his wife Barbara met at The Moody Church in 1973 and have three adult children: Bethann, married to Jon Ranous, pastor of a small country church near Springfield, Ohio. They are blessed to have three children: Anna, Noah and Micah; Matthew, a pastry and chocolates chef married to Jessica, living in South Bend Indiana, with their fine little boy, Ethan; and Michael, married to Amber. They have a loving son, Logan Michael and a beautiful daughter, little Marilyn Jean. Rich graduated from the University of Illinois Chicago with a bachelor’s degree in architecture.
