THE RICHMOND FAMILY
Cali to Canada
California Natives, Pastor Terrance & Julia Richmond moved their family to Canada in 2016 leaping out into their call, to live life on the Love Quest. In January 2017, they established Love Quest International Church, gathering with our core group weekly on Tuesday evenings. In October 2017 we hit stride into our next phase, soft launching a weekly Sunday worship experience, which we like to call, our LVFX Experience. We are elated to share with you this next season of The Richmond’s Love Quest, but it's better expressed through the experience you have when you join us in person. We are so humbled and thankful God would create such a purpose for such an amazing family and bless Canada with them at such a time as this. We will birth a new sound as the sound track for global revival and equip the body of Christ for the work of the ministry. Love Quest has the unique responsibility to Love All Nations, Equip the Church, Mobilize the Equipped and Serve All.
Pastor Terrance Richmond grew up in the church and attributes his faith to the guidance of a praying grandmother. But it wasn’t until 2007 that he received a revelation that would change his life and so many others forever. He made a decision to intentionally host the presence of God and awaken to the power and calling the Lord had placed within him. It was this commitment that took him from a life of crime, addiction and complacency in East Oakland, CA, to his current platform as a Pastor, International Speaker and Recording Artist. As he considers himself, a “Professional Communicator”, his greatest passion is to activate people and point them to the promises, freedom and power available in and through the Gospel.
Some of his professional experiences like mentoring young people, guidance counselling for marriage and families, playing professional sports and producing inspirational music, lend themselves well to his role as a Pastor. Along with being a student athlete at NCAA's Division 1, San Jose State University and Bachelors Degree in Theology and Marriage and Family Counselling, Terrance Richmond is a dynamic leader, a captivating speaker and conveys the authority of a father, wisdom of a scholar and the faith of a child. This family not only loves us but the love they have for each other is compelling.
LQIC exists to Love All Nations, Equip the Church, Mobilize the Equipped and Serve All. As a family, the Richmonds are rooted in love and emanate joy that transcends cultural boundaries, prejudice and adversity, while inspiring and empowering others to do the same. It is evident that their conviction to teach, serve and love humanity is charged by their passion for the Word of God, their submission to the Holy Spirit and their love for Jesus Christ.
We pray you join us on this LOVE QUEST!
