Richie “Ray” MaldonadoAssociate Pastor
Pastor Richie “Ray” Maldonado and his wife Angie have been happily married for 44 years. After a successful career in music, he felt a great void in his life and in 1974 he received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. In 1983, when Pastor Joaquin Molina was only 16 years old, he and his entire family gave their lives to the Lord in the church where Pastor Richie was pastoring. In 1998, Pastor Joaquin founded Spring of Life Fellowship church but continued to maintain contact with Pastor Richie and Angie. After more than 20 years, the Lord has reunited Pastor Richie with his spiritual son Pastor Joaquin. With renewed strength and enthusiasm, Pastor Richie and Angie bring their many years of ministerial experience, musical gifting, and biblical understanding to serve the body of Christ at Spring of Life Fellowship. Pastor Richie has an earnest desire to see God fulfill his purpose and plan in the life and home of everyone willing to give God a chance. One of Pastor Richie’s favorite expressions is, “no holy macaroni”, meaning, we need less religion and more of a sincere and genuine devotion to Christ.
