Meet the men and women on our leadership team

Rick George

Interim Lead Pastor of Lighthouse Community Church

Rick hails from West Michigan and has been serving the Lord faithfully at Lighthouse for over 16 years. While he is always quick to crack a joke, it is easy to see his tender heart and abounding love for others. A first-hand example is seen in the way Rick serves his wife, Jenny, and four children. You may see his kiddos serving in the kids' wing, running around after service, or cracking their own jokes (as they aspire to live up to dad). Rick cares deeply about those he serves and has a deep longing to see Kalamazoo transformed by the love of Jesus Christ.
