Richard L. Summers was 13 years old when he recognized his need for the Lord Jesus Christ. Behind a piano his Youth Leader led him in prayer and he accepted Jesus’ free gift of salvation. At 16 years old, he surrendered to Jesus Christ and started to preach the Gospel. After high school, he studied at Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO. While attending school, he met Kathy, his wife and together they followed the Lord in several ministries including Youth/Song leader, and they also started a church. In 1976 they were called to Shiprock, NM to be missionaries to the Navajo Indians. They served there for one year when the Lord moved them to a church in Ahloso, OK where Pastor Rick served for 5 years. The Lord moved them again to Spring Hill, KS to pastor at the Ocheltree Baptist Church. After ten years in Spring Hill, the Lord gave him a burden to start a new church. The church was originally located in Stanley, KS. After 2 1/2 years, the Lord moved the church to Louisburg, KS. He has been pastoring the Louisburg Baptist Temple since 1995. Pastor Rick and Kathy have 4 grown children and enjoy spending time with each of their grandchildren. Pastor Rick likes
