Rich Cortese

Biography

Prior to his role as founding pastor of Garden City Church, Pastor Rich (and Nadine) served at Calvary Christian Church in Lynnfield, MA for over 8 years. In his role as senior associate Pastor Rich was responsible for overseeing the evangelism and discipleship as well a ministry to married couples. Rich is a graduate of Trinity Bible College (B.A.) and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (M.Div). He and his wife, Nadine, have been married for more that twenty years. They have three children: Adam, Gordon, and Victoria. They love pizza and movies, cookouts, and just about anything that makes them laugh.

In addition, Rich is an avid NY Giants fan and roots for the Yankees whenever he can. When he is not hanging out with his family you can find him enjoying a cup of coffee at Starbucks, Panera or even Dunkin Donuts. Pastor Rich loves reading the Bible and just about anything by John Piper, C. S. Lewis, Tim Keller, and Eugene Petersen. If he had an iPod you would find it loaded with music from Charlie Hall (his favorite), Passion, Chris Tomlin, David Crowder, Jeremy Camp and maybe a song or two from Deep Purple, Jeff Beck, or Tony Bennett. (I know that last one doesn't make sense.)This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word. Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God.
