One pastor isn't enough for Emmaus. We share many of the functions of traditional pastors, but we do it as a team. As bi-vocational pastors, we work in the community, and serve in leading Emmaus. Each of the pastors share in teaching, preaching, planning, building community. Email the pastors below by clicking on their photos.

When Rick isn't actively boosting Boise State Bronco's sports, he's directing the work at Corpus Christi, a day-time shelter serving the homeless folks of Boise. Rick's background has been as an elementary principal until his retirement a couple years ago. Rick keeps us on track. Perhaps all those years as a principal prepared him for us.
