Purpose & Destiny Life Coach
Bishop Rick Garrett, Sr., has been married to the beautiful Debra Garrett for 33 years. He is the father of 6 children, grandfather of 17, 1 great grandson & Spiritual/God father to many who find his personal demeanor and compassionate nature an excellent replacement in the lives of those whose biological fathers have vacated their parental responsibility.
Bishop Rick was born in a small town in Texas, until he moved to the Town of Florence AZ with his mother in the late 1960’s. He grew up as an only child in a single parent household. Being rejected by his biological father, not being able to connect with his half-brothers, not having a strong male presence in his life, society would have classified him as one least likely to succeed.
But little did society know, that Rick had been poured into by his grandmother and mother the positive affirmations that he could succeed if he wanted it bad enough. So Rick grew up, made a lot of mistakes along the way but determined to learn from what had been done and what had not been done to him he persevered.
Excuses were not used even though no one would have blamed him for using them. As a result of his not giving in to what others thought was inevitable, God in his infinite wisdom later in Rick’s life brought mentors that began to show him by example what it would take to be a good man, husband, father, grandfather and any other title he would hold.
Over the last 25 years Rick has worked side-by-side with his wife Debra in establishing 4 Christian Daycares/Private School and continues to support her in formulating and operating the many different entrepreneurial endeavors she develops. Along with working with his wife, Rick is the founder and Senior Pastor of The Message Church and Chaplain of EastLake Mortuary.
Today, Rick uses everything the good, bad and ugly that has happened in his life to help or assist others to understand that they too can make it. He focuses his efforts and exercises his anointing & skills in the areas of men & women, family, children, and marriage counseling so that people can experience total life prosperity in their lives. He continues to be called upon to speak in the areas of "How to Support your Pastor and/or Pastors wife" and is formulating a soon release of a special ministry focused on dealing with Associate/Assistant Pastors called “Being Number One at Being Number Two”.
Today, Rick also assists his wife Debra in running their company Nutrition Boutique, LLC. There company assists men & women in weight loss/gain, body transformations, fitness and "Free" wellness evaluations. He has lost over 70 lbs, and Debra over 50 lbs and have kept it off for over 6 yrs. He works diligently with their support group that meets weekly in a non-threatening environment to discuss each person progress. Each person weighs in as an accountability measure and discuss any challenges and celebrate any victories.
Having received a Bachelors Degree in Theology he continues self-development through seminars, reading and listening to audio books by those who have obtained success in the field he operates in.
Rick has committed his life to serving God through serving others.
