Dr. Rick Martin:

Dr. Rick MartinDr. Donald R. "Rick" Martin is a licensed Clinical Pastoral Counselor - Advance Certified with the National Christian Counselors Association. He has a Ph. D. in Clinical Counseling from Cornerstone University (Shreveport, LA) and a Doctor of Divinity degree from the International Bible College and Seminary (Plymouth, FL). Rick is an ordained minister with Calvary Ministries International. He has been in the ministry since 1974, as a pastor in Michigan, indiana, and Florida, evangelist, Teen Challenge Director, Prison Chaplain for the State of michigan D.O.C. and Pastoral Counselor.

In 1993, Rick became acquainted with Temperament Theology and the National Christian Counselors Association. Intrigued with Temperament Therapy as a Bible-based, Christ-centered therapeutic counseling disciple that provided actual answers and help for people in need of Christian/Pastoral counseling, Rick went on to finish his Ph.D. in Clinical Pastoral Counseling. Seeing the need for professional Christian counseling in the Charlotte, MI area (where he was a pastor at the time), he left the pastorate and in 1997 opened Jesus Is Lord Ministries, where he has been devoting his full time to providing professional Christian counseling using temperament Therapy. He also provides Temperament seminars for churches, businesses, and other organizations, as well as guest speaking in area churches. This is how he became acquainted with Mayflower Church.
