Additionally, for many years Rickey served as a Youth Ministry leader where he experienced the weekly opportunity of impacting young people’s lives and assisting them in unlocking the doors to their destinies. The young people were taught to stand on I Timothy 4:12 and have lives that are characterized by spiritual courage, holiness, charity, faith, purity and the ability to think critically and act upon the issues facing their generation.
Moreover, for 18 years, Rickey served as the Director of a group for teenage guys called the Mighty Men of Valor.    As a  Professor at the Jericho Christian Training College, he taught “Christian Apologetics” for 7 years and “Courtship vs. Dating” for more than 10 years.
