Richard grew up in small coastal town in North Carolina. That’s where he developed his love for the beach, southern food and Tarheel basketball. It is also where he first felt called to ministry, while attending Roanoke Bible College (now Mid Atlantic University). In 2002, Richard graduated with his BA in Bible and Theology with a minor in Youth Ministry, and married his college sweetheart, Sarah. Together they raise their two boys. After some time in Ohio doing youth ministry and taking seminary classes, the Hamiltons relocated to San Antonio, Texas in 2008 and Richard began serving as youth & young adult minister at Castle Hills Christian Church. Richard can usually be found at one of the specialty coffee shops around town. In his spare time, he watches films, plays guitar, and keeps up on the latest tech.
