About Me

Grace and Peace, my name is Richard Roldan preferably Ricky. I’m married with 3 adult kids. Before being born again or made spiritually alive I was pretty much a bad dude, you know the whole thug life, drug dealing gun wheeling lifestyle etc. I don’t feel the need to go into details cause that would be a book actually LOL, no but seriously, I made an official commitment to Christ at the age of 20 since being raised in a Christian home where your pops is a pastor, you really don’t know when that actual regeneration occurred and I don’t think anyone really does, but anyways I stopped “thuggin” cold turkey like the next day, which brought me some trouble but that’s also another story. Ever since I have been given a Godly desire to take the gospel and sound doctrine back to da hood aka my culture. It is not that my culture is all hood but that is term we lovingly use to describe the inner-city and urban environment.

Basically, I feel called by the Lord to be an evangelist/reformer/teacher to my culture, to bring them the true message of the gospel and teach them sound christian doctrine as found in our creeds and reformed confessions, which we in the Reformed faith, believe are the accurate summaries of the Word of God. I do not have any formal seminary training but I have been studying biblical theology and systematic theology through the same means as bible college and seminary students via books, audio, video, and mentors for the last 27yrs and I also have been teaching for 26yrs. Not to downplay formal training or anything, there is much need for it, believe it!

Now what culture do I refer to? By that I do not mean my Latino or Hispanic culture as many people quickly assume being that I’m Puerto Rican or Philarican, I was born in Philly. Rather what I mean by my culture is the Hip Hop culture/inner city urban culture to which I was born and raised in. This culture is a sub-INTERNATIONAL culture, I emphasis international because individuals who are not familiar with this culture quickly assume it is only a sub-American culture, which it is but not limited to America. This like any other culture or nation must also be evangelized and discipled as the principles of our Reformed faith mandate, a Reform Ordinance sort of speak, to bring nations and its cultures to Christ receiving this command by our Lord in the Great Commission.
