Over three years ago, Rick Ashbaugh became the pastor at Tipton Community Baptist Church after serving in Rush, Colo. He said the overarching thing which brought him to Tipton was it was where the Lord wanted his family.
Growing up as a young man, Ashbaugh felt the call to serve while graduating from college and going to college. Praying about it and seeking the counsel of others, he responded to the call after having doors opened educationally for him to do so.
Since then, he has served in ministry for over 18 years.
