Remembering Pastor Rick
Funeral Service for Dr. Rick Keith Blackwood, PhD, DMin, EdD
Our beloved Pastor Rick went to be with the Lord early on August 4, 2023 around midnight surrounded by his family. Although we will miss him dearly, we remember what scripture says in Romans 8:38-39: “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Pastor Rick loved God, his family and Miami. He made it the goal of his life to proclaim the gospel to everyone in this world, and we know that he is now in the arms of the same God that brought him to this city.
Before his passing, he expressed to us his desire to have a funeral service open to the public. Because of this, we wanted to invite everyone to join us at our Palmetto Bay Campus as we honor his life and legacy and praise God for the work He did through Pastor Rick.
