Dr. Rick Yohn, president and founder of Men of the Word, is a native of Lancaster, PA, and has, for the past forty plus years, pastored churches in Canada, California, Minnesota, Texas, and Colorado. But in April 2010, the Lord directed Rick to transition from his pastoral position and launch "Men of the Word."
Rick has always had a passion to help men in their walk with the Lord by teaching God's Word to men throughout his ministry. As his ministry continues, Rick has become more intentional on equipping men to trust, know, and live God's Word in their spheres of influence, through the ministry of "Men of the Word."
God has used Rick as an effective communicator, speaking in churches, on college and seminary campuses, in Bible conferences, and to NFL players. Rick has also led many tours to the Holy Land and possesses a deep passion for the people of Israel and the Middle East.
