Hearing the Voice of God is not a mystery.  It's not reserved for the super-spiritual, nor is it for a select few.  It's completely attainable. 


The Hearing God e-course will guide you through the process of how to clearly hear and discern God’s voice. It will unravel the mystery of why you think you aren’t hearing from God and the steps you need to take to finally understand what He’s trying to tell you. There are several biblical lenses in the Bible that shows us God’s perspective and removes our own clouded vision. We will explore all of them.

Intentional coaching is a great way to learn and grow quickly. Both one-on-one and group coaching are available to meet your needs.


Jesus taught his disciples both individually and in group settings.  When Jesus taught large crowds, he would often pull away with a select few to teach them in a more intimate setting. Both ways were meaningful and impactful.

With that same heart, Rick is offering intentional coaching opportunities.  When your coaching sessions are adapted to your situation and circumstances, you’ll see firsthand how it applies to your life. You get to ask questions and interact at your comfort level. We can focus on what you need to grow in Christ.  

Spiritual truths will finally come to life! Rick will encourage you, inspire you, challenge you, pray with you, teach you, and guide you. Rick is flexible with his teaching style and tailors it to your specific needs.




I'm Rick.

I'm the founding Pastor of the Church of the Free, where I have served as the lead Pastor for over 13 years.  I earned a Master’s of Divinity from Multnomah Biblical Seminary, where I was awarded the Faculty Award for Spiritual Life.

My passion is to help you experience God’s love and presence in your life, teach you how to apply the scriptures and walk you through a process of true transformation.

I started Come Close Ministries to help people draw close to God and learn how to experience His presence daily.

I started teaching the Hearing God course because a friend of mine said to me, "You hear God better than anyone I know, how do you do it?"  In the moment he stumped me.  I knew I heard God, but I didn't know how I was hearing Him.  This sent me into deep prayer time and I asked God to show me how I was hearing His voice.  Over the course of a few years he revealed the tools I was using in the Bible to recognize his voice. These ‘biblical lenses’ became the framework for this course.

Why did I create a course instead of just answering my friend’s question?  Because people kept asking me how they can have a deep connection with God like I seem to have. These repeated questions sparked in me the desire to help people like you develop a deep spiritual connection with God that I had already discovered. 

But is it possible to truly hear God’s voice? Yes, it's more than possible!  It's your God given right to connect deeply with Him.  Jesus died to give us a relationship with Him.  He then gave us the Holy Spirit to dwell within us.  The Holy Spirit is our comforter, counselor, teacher, guide, and more.  I love showing people how to connect with God through the Bible and the Holy Spirit.

I've been teaching these courses to all ages.  Regardless of your background, I know I can teach you to hear God's voice.  You'll experience God speaking to you within the first week of taking this course. 

Join me on a journey of spiritual connection today!

"What a powerful, biblically accurate, encouraging, and practical course! The Lord had placed me in the midst of an exceptionally difficult life trial where I desperately needed to “hear God’s voice” to provide clarity and direction. Rick’s course was God’s timely provision. This course combines sound theology tied to Scripture along with real-life examples from Rick’s own experiences as well as practical exercises; all of which help make the material come to life. I especially enjoyed the session on fear and anxiety. Life-changing truths!"

 "My wife and I took this course, and it completely changed our lives for the best! It’s a missing element that we needed to understand to embrace hearing God and understanding His character and much more."
