Over the past 25 years, Rick has served at churches in Miami, Chicago, and Fort Lauderdale. In 2005, he planted CityChurch in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
He is a graduate of Trinity International University (B.A., 1996) and Knox Theological Seminary (M.Div., 2000), and is ordained as a minister in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).

Winston is our first and current CityChurch Project Pastoral Resident. Raised in South Florida, Winston’s training in our Residency is preparing him to plant a new gospel-centered, multi-generational, multi-cultural, and multi-ethnic church in Lauderhill, near where he grew up.
In 2002, Winston left a career in technology consulting and began serving in various executive ministry roles, which included overhauling accounting operations, co-founding a PreK-8 school, and managing a media group, all within the same church. Feeling a call toward vocational ministry, Winston attended Reformed Theological Seminary, graduating in 2016 with an M.Div.
Winston and his wife Brenda have three children: Alyssa (19), Alexander (15), and Andrew (10).
