Meet Dick Germaine

Dick was Sr. Pastor of First Congregational Church, Hopkinton, MA, for 30 years.  When he arrived it was in the throes of biblical illiteracy and theological liberalism; when he stepped down it was a solidly biblical and evangelical church.  He then founded Barnabas Ministries with the focus of  developing John 17:23 pastoral support groups.  The purpose of these support groups is to connect, encourage, inspire and enable pastors to succeed in 21st century ministry.  13 years later he turned this significant and growing ministry to pastors over to new leadership and now gives himself to one-on-one ministry to pastors.  He has been happily married for 56 years to Jay, and they have four grown children and 10 grandchildren.
