A Place Of Refuge
Pastor Richard C. Miller, Sr. was born in Winston-Salem, NC where he attended the local public schools. He is married to the former Ernestine Waddell who humbly serves as Co-Pastor in the Ministry. In this union, they have raised seven beautiful children; three sons (one deceased) and four daughters who are very active in the ministry.
Pastor Miller has been saved since 1967. In the same year he joined St. Stephens Missionary Baptist Church where he served as a Deacon, Director of the Baptist Training Union, Department Superintendent of Sunday School, Director of Vacation Bible School and was instrumental in developing a Boys and Girls Scouting program.
In 1982, Pastor Miller accepted the call to preach the Gospel and has been on fire for the Lord. Pastor Miller has been the Senior Pastor of Holy Trinity Full Gospel Fellowship Center since 1983. Under his administration, various ministries and fellowships have been established that ministers to the total man.
In 1993, he joined the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship. While serving in the Fellowship he was the Northwest District Overseer of North Carolina and served as First Assistant to the General Overseer of the Southern-Atlantic Region. With a great love for Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr. and the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship, in 2008 Pastor Miller resigned from his positions to obey God and follow His direction.
In 2004, Pastor Miller founded R. I. C. H. Community Development Corporation. Pastor’s vision for this community-based organization is to Re-invest in the community by Improving lives and Creating Hope through mentoring, educational, and substantial support programs.

In the Community of Forsyth County, Pastor Miller is a Red Cross Volunteer, and currently serves as a member of the Red Cross Blood Drive Board of Directors. In addition, Pastor Miller has been honored by receiving the Exceptional Service Award for his Blood Drive services.
Pastor Miller strongly believes he is more than a conqueror through Christ; and along with being a conqueror, he is the head and not the tail; coming behind in no good thing. He’s a mighty anointed vessel of God committed to intergity.
