In the year 2000, after over fifteen years of devoted service as Assistant Pastor, he accepted his call to ministry and later established New Creation Word of Faith Christian Center which was later changed to New Creation Christian Center , a growing and established church located in the inner city of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Pastor Richard often reflects on how New Creation originated in his home with only five faithful members: his wife, sister, nephew, one other servant and himself.

It was by his faith and trust in God that what some called a dilapidated, rundown building infested with prostitutes and drug addicts would be reconstructed into a beautiful, pristine house of worship. After several months of sacrificed time and labor, a costly project had been accomplished with only five members and Pastor Richard never doubted nor questioned God! Since the ministry began, membership has continued to increase due to the unchanging Word that he and his wife have committed to preach without compromise.

Pastor Richard is known and respected by many as a man of strong faith and fervent prayer. He is an outstanding leader with high expectations of himself and others. Pastor Richard knows that he was sent by God to the inner city "to be a voice and not an echo". He proclaims a good word for troubled times. His purpose and passion is to take back the community for the Kingdom of God through prayer, fasting, evangelism and love.
