In loving Memory of Elder Rick Jack (July 24, 1953 – March 5, 2021)
Rick served as an associate pastor to support the vision of NBCF and was foundational in establishing the ministry with his wife, Debra, in 2005. Rick had a pastor’s heart and was committed to watching over the flock of NBCF and encouraging them to continue “running the race set before us.” He was an architect and owner of Rick Jack Architect, a full-service architectural design firm in Leicester. He had a strong interest in Biblical prophecy and world history. In his free time, he often enjoyed completing projects in his tool shed, reading, taking scenic drives and playing with his grandkids. We miss him greatly and are forever grateful for how the Lord used him to establish and move this ministry forward. We love you, Papa Rick!
