Rick crossed the line and gave his life to Christ in 2005 at Crossline’s first Men’s Retreat. After missions experiences in Mexico and Israel with The Global Mission, he dedicated his life to serving Crossline and “the least of these” and joined their volunteer staff in 2009. He’s the Vice President of the Chanje Movement, the ministry’s humanitarian outreach to Haiti, which he helped establish after the devastating earthquake of 2010. Since then he’s led multiple house-building trips to Mexico and relief teams to Haiti. He’s also the owner and operator of Braeutigam Construction since 1998, a residential and commercial construction business. Rick and his wife, Shari, have attended Crossline since the beginning in 2005. His hobbies include camping with his family, fishing and surfing. Rick says that his most enjoyable part of his day is to have quiet time with Shari over a good cup of coffee. They live in San Clemente with their four kids, Heather, Celeste, Samantha and Max.
