Welcome to People of Faith! My name is Pastor Rick Kristoff and I am excited and blessed to be serving with this faith family. My wife Tracy, daughter Emma and I have come from California to serve this congregation, even though Tracy and I are both mid-westerners, but have lived in South Florida in the past. I attended Indiana University Northwest in Gary, Ind (GO HOOSIERS!). and also the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in Columbia, S.C. My interests include spending time with the family, watching/going to the movies, exercise and walking our dogs Bear (a mix or what we like to call a "cocker/snocker/poodle/doo") and Lily (a miniature poodle). I want people to see church as the people of God (not a building) and that worship takes place throughout the week as we give, serve, help and love others in the name of Jesus.
My favorite Bible verses are: Romans 8:38 - 39: For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." NRSV
I invite you to "COME AND SEE" who we are and what we do for the Lord.
