When Rick Brown surrendered his life of drugs, promiscuity, and violence at the age of 19, he realized his need for a Savior after trying and failing to fill the deep void in his life. One afternoon, alone and half-drunk, he asked for God’s forgiveness. That simple prayer marked the beginning of a radical change in Rick’s life. Since that time, Rick has relentlessly pursued a life that reflects the God who has loved him, saved him, and has given him purpose when, by all accounts, the world would have thrown him away. Rick will be the first to tell you that he is as surprised as anyone by all that God has done through him. He entered full-time ministry at the age of 24, and has served as an assistant pastor, and youth pastor, and planted two churches.
Rick and his family arrived in Idaho Falls, Idaho, in 1993 without any money or congregation. With a passion for seeing God move in the community, they planted a church that has grown into a major force in Southeastern Idaho. Through perseverance, divine inspiration, and entrepreneurial skills, he led the acquisition of 27.9 acres of land and the building of a large church, elementary school, middle school, high school, and gym complex.
In 1997, Rick launched Watersprings Christian School, which serves over 400 preschool through 12th-grade students, providing state championship athletics programs and a competitive, faith-based, academic curriculum. Throughout this time, God continued to show how He works through prayer, gives vision, and the unifications of teams and leaders to expand His kingdom to the right and to the left.
As the founder of Revelation Radio network, Rick longed to proclaim biblical truth to equip God’s people and impact the culture. He led a team to build stations that continue to reach a potential local audience of over 400,000 listeners and a worldwide online audience in over 100 countries.
