Garrick Sinclair "Ricky" Beckett is a U.S. Army veteran and currently a student at Concordia University-Ann Arbor studying Business Management with an emphasis on Human Resources. Upon graduating, he plans to attend the Ft. Wayne LCMS seminary in Indiana. His goals are to use the experience and knowledge of his Business degree to plant a church where God most needs him, calling it The Redeeming Lamb Lutheran Church (LCMS). As he prays for this, his other goals include getting a secondary master's in Sacred Theology to be a professor of exegesis and/or Greek/Hebrew. After several years of being a full-time pastor, he hopes to be a full-time professor and part-time pastor if God wills it. Blessed with the gift of writing poetry and short stories, he decided to use that gift to speak to others via the Internet that he is unable to reach with personal contact.
