Pastor Ricky Bowen
Originally from Spartanburg, SC, Ricky has lived in Asheville for over 40 years. God called Ricky to Himself through the Gospel of Jesus Christ in 1991. It wasn’t long till God revealed to Ricky, through His Word and godly counsel, that He had both gifted and called Ricky to pastoral ministry. Once Ricky graduated from Bible College with a degree in Theology in 1999, Ricky has served in both large and small fellowships and held various positions of responsibility. His greatest passions are to see people know the LORD, mature in their faith, live in biblical fellowship/community with one another and become a light to those that have need of the Gospel. Ricky enjoys basketball, running, good coffee and people. Ricky is married to Alana and they have three children–Meredith, Caelyn and Brynlee.
