Prior to becoming a pastor, Richard Young had a full-time private practice of obstetrics and gynecology in Nevada and traveled around the world giving seminars to OB/GYN doctors. After practicing for 14 years, he felt the call to ministry and was ordained. He immediately accepted a call to be a missionary in Guyana as a doctor and a pastor in 2001. Richard is known for being dedicated to holistic ministry; using health care skills within the context of ministry as a witness and service of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Guyana. He completed service in 2011.
