Richie Del Cristo, Jr. came to Grace Lutheran Church in February of 2019 after graduating from the University of Texas at Arlington with his Bachelor’s in Music with a Vocal Music Education emphasis. He is passionate about enabling others to become “life-long learners” in music and in their faith. He is excited to share God’s love to all people. You will consistently find Richie participating in choir and bells, or with helping lead the congregation on Sunday mornings.
Richie also enjoys spending time snowboarding, playing games, and flying (he recently obtained his instrument rating!). His favorite past-time is connecting with others over their favorite beverage or food and learning more about their lives. One of his favorite scriptures, Philippians 4:6-7, reminds him of the peace and joy that Jesus provides: “Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
