Rick Blaisdell-Author BiographyRICK BLAISDELL – AUTHOR/PASTOR [ rfblais@comcast.net ] Rick was born in New Hampshire and moved to Vermont at the age of 6 months, and has been a Vermont resident for most of his life. After graduating from high school in June 1964, he enlisted in the US Air Force, serving in Texas, Georgia, and Germany. He received an honorable discharge from active duty in 1968, followed by an additional two years in the Air Force Reserves. Civilian work included several plastics molding factories and golf courses. In brief, his life after the military took a turn toward playing in several rock bands, (he was a drummer), drugs, and alcohol. This lifestyle continued for another 13 years, until God supernaturally intervened in Rick’s life. In the Preface of his recently published book One Life to Give, Rick shares his life in more depth with the intent of showing the reader how powerfully God can and will change a person’s life if he or she is willing. Rick became a born-again believer on March 21, 1983 and instantly delivered from 13 years of drug and alcohol addictions through the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In Rick’s own words, “It was also the same gospel that forgave me of all my sins through the Blood of Jesus. All the bitterness, hatred, and unforgiveness in my own heart left immediately, as I forgave every person who had ever taken advantage, hurt, or offended me. Right after my salvation experience, I had, and still do, have a fire of desire to see others saved and set free by the same gospel that saved me.” Rick and his wife Faith are the co-founders of Renewed Life in Jesus Church, established in 1986 in Rockingham, Vermont. He was ordained into the ministry on November 18, 1990, and served as the co-pastor until April 1999. Later in the same month, he was officially designated by the Board of Ministry to serve as the new senior pastor. At the time of this writing in 2014, Rick still serves the church in that capacity. His heart's desire is to see people from all lifestyles, with all kinds of problems and issues, sicknesses, and diseases brought willingly to the Cross of Christ for healing, deliverance, and restoration. Through Renewed Life in Jesus Church, Rick is, and has been very much involved with supporting missionaries and sending short-term mission workers nearly every year since 1991, (including himself), into foreign countries including the Czech Republic, the Republic of Slovakia, Kenya, Africa, the Philippines, and South India. “One Life to Give was written to be an inspiration to those who may think that just because they are only one person, ‘What difference can my life make?’ If that is you possibly wondering what you can do, please read this book. Through the constant urging of my wife and many faithful friends, and a very strong inner desire to be an encouragement to others, it is written to give you, the reader, the courage to never give up, never look back, and always be open to God to use you for all the time you have remaining.”
