Lead Pastors Rick & Tami Beard

Thank you for visiting our site! Tami and myself are so excited to be here in Garden City.  We have been in ministry for 20 years.  We started out in ministry  as Assistant Pastor/ Youth Pastors in Canadian Texas the first couple of years. We then took a Senior Pastorate position in Friona Texas in 1998 for 7 years. From there we felt the call of God to start a new work in Lamar Colorado and went back to my wifes home town in 2006. God did a wonderful work there and we ended up pastoring two churches while we were in Colorado.  The Lord opened a door for us to pastor in the town of Holly Colorado while we were also pastoring in Lamar. We stayed at these two works for 10 years until we resigned these ministries to come to Garden City.  We are excited to see what the Lord has in store for Word of Life Church family as well as our own lives. Come see what God is doing here in the Word of Life Church. In Christian Love and Service, Pastors Rick and Tami Beard
