Raised in one of the largest gospel families in Steelton, PA, Ricardo’s entire life has been dedicated to God, giving Ricardo the freedom to sing the sweet melodies of heaven as he lifts his voice and raises a call to worship. In 1989 God spoke to Ricardo that He was calling him to lead people into His presence and giving Ricardo a new song.
After fourteen years serving as a worship pastor in Virginia, Ricardo and Elizabeth came to Life Center. They were drawn to this city-on-a hill because of Charles’ and Anne’s hearts to develop the next generation of leaders to reach their full potentials. God’s words to Ricardo continue to be established as he and Elizabeth encourage the psalmists in this house. Their hearts are both to cultivate the worship leaders at Life Center and bring quality with a level of excellence in the musical abilities of all who play on stage.
Ricardo received his Ministry and Biblical Studies degrees at the Spirit of Truth Institute and his Masters and Doctorate Degrees in Sacred Music. Ricardo has two grown children who are now serving in various ministries, including Lakewood Church in Texas.
