In Memory…Pastor Rick Bullis
It is with great sadness that America World’s Affiliate Board of Directors announces the death of Board Chair, Rick Bullis. Pastor Rick and his late wife adopted through America World and were instrumental in helping America World establish an Illinois office in 2014. He has served on the Board of Directors since 2013 and was appointed Chairman in 2015.
A statement from Board Member, David Barwell:
“I will always remember two things about Pastor Rick: first, he was always a good listener and secondly, although he did not speak a lot
at meetings, when he did everyone listened intently as he spoke with an enormous amount of experience and wisdom.
We will miss you, Pastor Rick.”
A statement from President, Brian Luwis:
“I remember the first time I met Rick on one of our Spirit of Adoption Tours and his passion for China and orphans was infectious. I learned much about China from Rick for he had traveled throughout the country and had so many great stories to tell of his encounters with the people of China whom he loved greatly. He will be truly missed by our family and by America World where he served as a faithful volunteer for many years.”
Pastor Rick will be remembered for his servant’s heart and for all the lives he touched through his ministries serving families and children in his community and abroad. On behalf of America World, we extend our deepest condolences to Rick’s family and friends.
