Rick Dorman

Lead Pastor

Rick and Carol Dorman have been married since 1975, and most of that time has been spent serving the Lord in leading churches to understand what it really means to accept the unconditional love of God and receive His grace and forgiveness. Church planting and rebuilding has been their life. They returned to their home church of Royal Haven, where they grew up as children and accepted the wonderful gift of salvation.

They pastor together leading five generational age groups with a diverse background of ethnicity, sponsoring congregations of Kenyan, Korean, and Hispanic heritage to worship and serve the Lord as “one church”.
Missions is their heartbeat. Connecting people in The River Ministry of Del Rio Texas, Acuña Mexico, and Kenya Africa, as well as serving the local needs of thousands of Farmers Branch Texas residents in providing food, clothing, housing assistance, and spiritual guidance.
