Rick Leary

Campus Development Pastor

Rick’s love for God and the Church is legend—wait for it—dary. He has served and lead in every department at Oak Hills from children’s to men’s ministry.

So what do you really do at the church? Campus Development includes new development, construction, ongoing maintenance, landscaping, and building teams. Other teams include the Coffee Bar, Kitchen, Cleaning and Set-up, Mowing Team and Building and Landscape Maintenance Teams. Often this requires a lot of prayer and recruiting to find volunteers to serve in all these areas. In between, there is also insurances, vehicle donations, and other administrative details. All this takes a considerable number of volunteers to accomplish and there is always a need for more help.
