Rick Muchow is the worship leader at the church founded and pastored by Rick Warren, Saddleback Church. When he came to Saddleback in 1986, Rick Warren told him, "Rick, I plan to read one book per day for the rest of my life. I won't be the same person 20 years from now that I am today. I will grow and change. What are you going to do?"   

I've been told from time to time that Five Oaks has changed. It wasn't meant as a compliment. Since I know that my heart is more focused on God's glory, becoming more and more like Christ and Christ's mission than ever before, I take it as a compliment. I've also been known to listen and change change (no, that's not a typo) due to criticism that hits home and is on target. But thank God Five Oaks has changed. May we keep changing.
