WGUMC welcomes Mr. Rick Wrisley, CLM. Born into long-line of farmers and raised in a local Baptist church, one of his first spiritual quandaries came at how reconcile the “mysteries and blessings of God” (as witnessed on his grandfather’s farm, the theological teachings of his church, with Science and scientific theories for which he had deep respect. Eventually becoming an engineer (and marrying an engineer) these questions continued, and came to a head, when his first grandchild was diagnosed with a rare, and potentially devastating, medical condition in 2002. Active in local UMCs in State College, Warrington, and very recently Cedarville (Pottstown), Rick’s passion is to help others find the plan and purpose that God may have for them when confronted with their own challenging circumstances. In April 2016, Rick became a Certified Lay Minister, after years of engagement with his local churches, and the Christ Servant Ministry program of the EPA Conference.
