     Richard was born in Lansing, Michigan and is a Yankton Sioux Native American. His family moved to Willows, California after his father’s death in 1951. He graduated from High School there and joined the Navy. During his 4 years in the Navy he received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and felt a call to attend Bible College. He graduated from Bethany Bible College now Bethany University (Assemblies of God) in 1971 with a Bachelors degree in Pastoral Theology. Over the years the Lord has been preparing him for a pastoral ministry. He was pastor to the hearing impaired congregation at Calvary Assembly of God in Salinas, California for several years.
     During his growing into ministry years Richard worked for the USPS and finally retired as an electronics technician in June 2000. Since then he has worked several part time jobs to help fund Amazing Grace Circuit Church, Inc.  He is currently an  substitute teacher in special education for the Monterey County Office of Education.
     In 2006 he completed the paperwork to incorporate the ministry as a chartered 501(c)3 corporation under the Association of Evangelical Gospel Assemblies in Monroe, LA. In early 2007 he completed testing for his ordination with this Association, passed the tests and is now ordained.
     Richard and Laverne have been married since 1968. They met and were classmates at Bethany.
    Laverne was born in Paris, Texas (not France) and her family moved to California when she was an infant. She grew up in Salinas and has Choctaw and Cherokee ancestry. She graduated from Salinas High and proceeded to Bethany where she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Religious studies/education and a minor in philosophy. She has worked as a preschool, kindergarten and elementary teacher and Preschool assistant director. She has always been motivational and supportive of Richard and their ministry. She is now enjoying retirement.

       Listed below are some of the Rendezvous in Northern California we currently attend, which are in black, or we would like to attend, which are in red.  Our purpose in attending Rendezvous is to present a positive Christian witness and to hold Protestant church services.  Our Christian witness includes letting buckskinners know that we can have just as much fun and shoot just as well as many of them and we don’t have to be crude, course or drunk to gain that enjoyment.
      Amazing Grace Circuit Church was incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation to allow us to issue tax-deductible receipts for financial support.  This support allows us to further our outreach to the American Fur Trade Rendezvous as missionaries to the 19th century.  We would like to encourage you to pray about supporting our outreach so we can make those events that are red (ones we are unable to attend) into black (ones we are able to attend).  If you know about events in Northern California that are not listed let us know so we can pray about adding it to our list.

John 3:16 (Amplified Bible) “For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.”
