About My Family

Three years ago Ricky and Audrey began to sense God was calling their family back to West Virginia, where Ricky grew up. Ricky had served as a pastor in Richmond, Va., for 10 years with Remnant Church. They had planned to be there for life.

Because of the tragic overdose of a friend in his hometown, Ricky and Audrey made the decision to move back to West Virginia to share the hope of the gospel. The Loves were sent by Remnant Church in August of 2019 to Berkeley Springs, W.V., with the hope of seeing a healthy church planted.

About My Church Plant

Berkeley Springs is a beautiful place in which to live. It is in close proximity to Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Being adjacent to these other states creates a strategic opportunity for Wellspring Church. It is one of two locations in West Virginia where there is population and economic growth. This region is home to more than 265,000 people who live, work and play together.

But this region is also a place of darkness and death. It is has been called the New Age Capital of the East Coast. It has one of the highest overdose rates in the United States. There are few healthy churches in this region. It would require a two-hour drive in almost every direction to find a healthy church.

This is our burden! We want to see a movement of healthy, joy-saturated churches planted throughout this region.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions living in North America have not been reached with the gospel. But a new church makes change possible in an unreached neighborhood.
Send Network church planters immerse themselves in a community, learning the rhythms and culture as they establish relationships with the lost. A church plant grows out of the evangelism efforts of the planter and his core team.
