Rev. Thomas E. Rickard
Thomas was born and raised in Australia in a family of eight. After High School, Thomas took up carpentry as a trade completing an apprenticeship and further studies in building and construction. When Thomas was in elementary school he heard the gospel and realized that no amount of good he could do could make up for the bad he has done. He was a sinner in need of a savior. He became a Christian and that changed his life forever. He served the church in a variety of positions.
Thomas moved to America in 2014 with his then fiancé and now wife Sarah and they have two children Stella (4) and Calvin (1). Thomas completed an M.Div at Reformed Theological Seminary (2018) at Charlotte NC. Thomas was ordained into the Presbyterian Church in America in 2020. Thomas likes to think of himself as a true confessional southern presbyterian (coming from the real south, Australia). Thomas enjoys reading, spending time with his lovely family, and running.
