Pastor Ritchie has never lived very far from where he was born grew up. Pastor Ritchie is an ordained minister with the United Pentecostal Church. He is married to his high school sweetheart Mary. They are the parents of three grown children and the grandparents to nine grandchildren.
Frank and Mary have ministered (served) for many years in Central Wisconsin. He has Served as an Assistant Pastor at Lighthouse Pentecostal Church in Wausau. Pastor Frank has also served as Associate Pastor at Riverside Apostolic Church in Marshfield working beside Pastor Jeffrey Peckham.
Good Samaritan Apostolic Church is a church plant out of Riverside Apostolic in Marshfield. Our first Bible studies began in July of 2013. Good Samaritan is now a North American Missions Church.
Pastor Frank is actively involved on the Wittenberg Area Chamber of Commerce, serving as the chamber secretary. Pastor and the Good Samaritan assembly started Community Days Worship Service in the park, in the town of Wittenberg, WI as a Chamber of Commerce project.
Good Samaritan is a rural church just west of Wittenberg Wisconsin. Good Samaritan is situated on the far east edge of Marathon County. It is on the top of Elderon Hill. When people ask where our church is located, nearly everyone knows where Elderon Hill is, so we feel like The Lord has given us a very easy to find location.
Despite the fact that we are rural, our footprint has reached across the globe. We have supported Tumaini Missions in Kenya, I AM Ministries, in Ghana, AYC youth missions trips, and purchased goats for widows, and sent Search For Truth Bible Charts to Africa. We have sent out gifts to children in orphanages in Nepal, South America, and China. We support UPCI Foreign Missionaries and North American Missionaries around the globe and here in the states.
God certainly has been good to us. We have come a long way from the days of pastor playing guitar with no pulpit, or sound system.
Thank You Jesus.
