Meet Pastor Brett and Mindy Rickey

Brett Rickey has been the Lead Pastor of Highland Park Church since February of 2009. Brett’s ministry blends his experiences from eleven years in corporate life with his nine years as the founding pastor of FamilyChurch in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He also serves as a coach and mentor to pastors of churches across the country.

Brett’s communication style is described as casual and approachable as he tries to teach through God’s timeless truths in a way that is relevant for our society today. His heart is to see a church, representing all generations, with a passion for Jesus and their local community. He believes a person is only truly fulfilled when they understand their God-given purpose and are reaching toward their God-given potential.

Brett completed his undergrad at Southern Nazarene University receiving a BA in Management and earned an MA in Practical Theology from Oral Roberts University. He is also a published author whose credits include Chasing Cool: Examining the Pursuits of Your Heart, Stay in the Yard, and Boomerang.

Mindy is a CPA who has worked in various business settings including public accounting and hospital administration. She is passionate about the unleashing the power of prayer in anyone she meets; she always has time to talk; and she loves a good pumpkin spice latte. Mindy is currently a full-time mom.

Brett and Mindy met when Mindy was checking out her new college: Southern Nazarene University. They quickly started dating and were married two years later. They have three daughters and a son-in-law: Jessica, Colton, Kelsey, Hope, and a grand-baby named Adeline.
