Michael Ritch

I was born and raised in a Christian home with my parents and two brothers. I was also blessed to grow up next door to my godly grandparents. Both my parents and grandparents were instrumental in leading me to Christ at an early age. It was when I was in elementary school that I knew I was a sinner in need of a savior and accepted Christ.

 

I became involved in a local churches youth group my junior year of high school which led me to become involved in RUF in college. After a short period of wondering who I was after college, the Lord reminded me that I am His. I attended Westminster Presbyterian Church in Rock Hill where I met my wife and became involved in youth ministries, missions trips to Belize, VBS, FCA, and was ordained and served as a deacon. My wonderful wife Merrissa and I have two sons and love being a part of what God is doing at Rivercrest.
