pastors Ric & Renee shaull

Ric traveled the midwest playing lead guitar in various bands until he got radically saved 30 years ago. He subsequently felt the call to ministry a few years later and attended Mount Hope Bible Training Institute in Lansing, Michigan while also studying for his ordination with the Assemblies of God. He is an ordained minister with the A/G and a sent pastor from Mount Hope Church, Lansing.

Renee was raised in an Irish Catholic home and even attended Catholic school but didn’t receive Christ as her Savior until age 16, during the Jesus Movement. After the death of her father at age 18, she began a 12-year downward spiral into drugs and alcohol, which eventually landed her in jail. Fortunately, she got clean and sober in Alcoholics Anonymous, and a year later became a single mom. She then rededicated her life to Christ, and began attending Mount Hope Church in Lansing. She is a licensed minister with the Assemblies of God.


Ric and Renee met and married at Mount Hope Church in Lansing in 1990. It was there that they felt the call to pastor and planted Solid Rock Foresquare Church in1994. From 2000 to 2008, they worked as sponsors with a large teen ministry and in 2009 were appointed as pastors at Mount Hope Church St Johns. They have 5 children (all of whom they homeschooled) and now have 5 grandchildren
