Rich came to faith in Christ at the age of 15 and immediately developed a love for the Bible and a love for Israel. While still a teenager, he determined to pursue theological and biblical studies. After graduating from Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia, Rich attended Dallas Theological Seminary in Dallas, Texas, earning a Master of Theology in Bible Exposition in 1992. He then pastored churches in Wyoming, New York, Texas, and Michigan. During his pastorate, he also earned a Doctor of Ministry in Expository Preaching from the Master’s Seminary in Sun Valley, CA. In 2016, Rich was invited to serve the Economic Mission of the State of Israel through the Israel Ministry of Tourism at the Israeli Consulate in Los Angeles, CA. During his time there, he connected pastors and churches as well as the travel industry in North America to Israel and Israeli travel suppliers. In 2021, Rich left the Ministry of Tourism to study at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In 2023, Rich was awarded a master’s degree in Archaeology and Near Eastern Studies. After completing his studies in Jerusalem, Rich joined GTI Tours to assist pastors and their churches to know and experience the biblical lands as a means of furthering Christian ministry and discipleship.
