HI, I’M PREACHER RICH DOVER

Well, much more than a preacher. I am a spiritual mentor, Bible teacher, seminar presenter, evangelist, street minister, podcast host, father, husband...

I am an atheist who became a sold out follower of Jesus Christ. In 1979 when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior the Lord called me into ministry. At that time I had no idea what that meant. I certainly did not know the journey it would take me on. From youth ministry, prison ministry, street ministry, recovery ministry, Senior Pastor, to…

My wife Carmi and I have been married for 17 years. Prior to our marriage Carmi was a small group leader, smuggled Bibles into China, and did several short term missions trip. Carmi is an amazing prayer warrior. There would not be any Creating Futures ministry without her prayers.
