Worship & Youth Pastor
Rich Guinto is a talented and gifted Worship Pastor who began playing the piano at the early age of 5. When he was 13, he would play piano in church alongside his mother who played the organ. Playing for worship at churches was his first part-time job in High School.
Rich simultaneously lead worship for the youth ministries of various sister churches in his early 20’s, just before embarking on full-time youth and worship ministry. Shortly after college, he felt the call to go into full-time worship ministry and has been leading churches in worship and mentoring young people for over 20 years.
Rich has a heart and passion to connect people of all generations to our awesome Savior and God. He loves the uniquely powerful way music can create dynamic worship experiences. He has a very eclectic style, and can appreciate & enjoy worship music of any genre. This connects with his passion for young people, seeing the ‘twinkle in their eye’ when youth connect with understanding scripture and their Christian faith.
Rich is married to the love of his life and high school sweetheart, Leslie. They are natives of the Tidewater Region of Eastern VA. They have two daughters, Rachel and Leah. When he isn’t enjoying time with his family, you can find him sketching almost any cartoon character there is.
