Hi, I'm Brian Rice, communications director for the First United Methodist Church. I've been part of this church family most of my life, but recently returned to this church with my lovely wife, Christi, and youngest daughter, Emily. I have two other children, Brad and Laura, who are well on their way to becoming young, talented responsible adults of their own.

My "day job" is newspaper publisher of The Excelsior Springs Standard / The Richmond NewsTown & Country Leader, but my love is to use my talents of creativity, writing and graphic design for God's purpose and to help our church reach out to as many people as possible. My dream is to not only help our church family grow closer together, but to help everyone in our community get a chance to learn about God and to learn what a difference He can make in their lives. Plus, I get to design some really cool stuff!

I love to draw cartoons and thus my family jokes around a lot! I've been a fan of Star Trek all my life and so I've become quite fond of technolgy and all the gadgets that now exist because of ST -- especially anything that begins with a lowercase "i". If you have news to share or need information about our church, I'm the guy to contact!
