Pastor Richard Carlson has been ministering in Rock Springs for over 30 years of his 40 years in ministry. He is a graduate of Trinity College and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. His ministry consists of three deep loves: a deep love for God, a deep love for His Word, and a deep love for people. This shows itself in strong preaching from the Word of God, gentle and yet direct counseling, and exciting evangelism both here in the U.S. and in many nations around the world. Pastor Carlson has written much and has published a book entitled, "Hope for the Home", (from which he conducts three day seminars for the family in churches, schools, academies, and colleges) as well as writing inspirational articles entitled, "Stop, Look and Listen" for the local newspaper. Among his ministry responsibilities, he also is the District Superintendent for the Intermountain West District of the Evangelical Fellowship of Free Churches. He and his wife, Jinny, are the parents of 7 grown children, and 14 grandchildren. Jinny's ministry is in one-on-one discipleship and women's teaching. She is also a certified doula for expectant couples. She and Pastor Carlson have celebrated over 40 years of marriage.
