It is so sad to hear of Rick's home-going, yet so satisfying to think about the impact Pastor Rick has had on my life and ministry. He became a profound spiritual mentor and example of a disciple making pastor. Britt and Jodi Harman and were a legacy of Rick's as they opened their lives to serve and disciple that young married class, which had a powerful impact in our lives and ministry! Even the authenticity displayed in them reflected the generous heart of Pastor Rick. Rick and Judy graciously loaned us his car after I wrecked mine as a seminary student who needed transportation for work...not just once but TWICE! Not to mention the times he met with me, prayed with me, and modeled the heart of Christ in his ministry. He lived out the reality of Christ's richest blessings being ours as we abide in Him. May God's amazing love and abundant Blessings be realized and flow through each of the Smith family and all impacted by Christ's love displayed in Rodrick Smith.
