About Us

Addicted!

My Name is Chaplain Rick Brewer and what can I say but… We’re Addicted! (1 Corinthians 16:15b and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints) I was saved early in our marriage, while serving in the Air Force. My wife Lori and I began to seek ways to serve Jesus Christ; we swept floors, stacked chairs, ran the book store.. whatever we could do.

Then one day Dr. Jim White came along; his preaching went right to the core of serving God and we surrendered for full time service that night. 

Preparation is an important part of any ministry, and because we did not know what God wanted us to do, we prepared for everything. I took Bible college courses in Germany, Florida, North Carolina, Kentucky and Indiana earning my Pastoral & Chaplaincy Ordinations and certifications; all while working in different fields and owning a business. The ministry has ranged from the pulpit to the streets and from living rooms to hospital rooms. We did what we could filling roles in Sunday School, VBS, Grounds Keeper, Cook… you get the picture… we served.

A Family Affair 

In January 2000 we formed the First Responders Support Ministries where, as a family, we worked with Police, Fire, EMS & the Coroners Office. Our goal was to provide both ministry support as well as public education on the sacrifices our great public safety officers make daily.

In addition we worked within other related organizations such as: The Lexington Public Safety Museum (Director on the Board) Citizens Fire Academy, Citizens Police Academy (and the Alumni Assoc.) Volunteers in Police Service, the Parks and Recs Dept (as Archery Instructors), and the Citizens Emergency Response Team (Director on the Board).

Our Children were a huge part in this outreach as they helped pass out tracts and flyers, helped with cookouts, and with visitation to the different stations. Lance always made sure EVERYONE we met got a hug (literally!) Damietta was always there to get the ..aww.. effect when she’d strike the cute poses, and Angelia was the workhorse pitching in anywhere there was a need.

For the many hours the ministry took me away from my family as a Chaplain and Pastor my family support made it possible for God to use me for so many years.

See a need, fill a need 

Part of filling that need came in the area of local business ownership. It was a way for us to be able to pay the bills while giving me the flexibility to be on call 24/7.  I started a local flyer distribution service, that over a short period of time became extremely popular. I began to fill my customers needs; and in doing so, began to learn the about print graphics, commercial graphic design and web design. I studied countless hours of design, trying to get better with each advertisement. Teaming up with Modern Web Studios in 2008 we began a relationship that prevails today as I continue to expand the services I can provide to God’s servants.

Down, but not out!

Serving in the Air Force was something that we thought was going to be my path and career in life… but God had other plans. While serving during Desert Storm I was exposed to toxic materials; my nervous system began to deteriorate.

Over a period of time I lost the ability to walk for more than 50 feet without assistance as well as some other physical limitations. My health was always an up/down battle, although God allowed me to regain most of my mobility from 2007 through 2010. In the summer of 2010 a mild stroke led to a rapid decline in my health and mobility. I fought for years to hide my disability and pushed myself hard to keep a full time career and full time ministry.

On the other side, in 2004, Lori was diagnosed with Cancer. So began a three year battle of surgeries, chemo and radiation. During these difficult times is when it seemed that God used us the most. We were determined not to let things like that slow us down. We seldom missed a church service, I added 2 more nursing homes to my Preaching circuit and Lori started witnessing at the Cancer Center leading many women to Christ. 

In 2016 my health became severe enough that I needed to step down from full time ministry as I could no longer had enough strength to preach a service or keep up with visitations. After stepping down we moved to Central Florida. I still work from home keeping up with writing and ministering through other means. My family remains active in the bus ministry and Jr. church.

Power Wheelz

With out motto “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth overdoing” in play, I began to add a few things to my wheelchair. Well ALOT of things. So much the wheelchair has a following all it’s own. At car shows and theme parks I am a regular photos stop for those who get a kick out of all the equipment I’ve added. We hand out cards that take them to God’s precious word. Hey.. use whatcha got, right?
