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 18 years. Prior to our marriage Carmi was a small group leader, smuggled Bibles into China, and did several short term missions trip, house manager for a woman recovery program. Carmi is an amazing prayer warrior. There would not be any Creating Futures ministry without her prayers.
