My name is Sean Richardson. I have lived all my life in the Shoals area of Northwest Alabama. I graduated from Lexington High School in 1982. While there I participated in Baseball, Scholar's Bowl (Captain), National Honor Society (President), and was in the Academic Top Ten.
I attended college at the University of North Alabama and graduated from there in 1987 with a Bachelor's Degree in History and Geography. I went back to UNA in 1990 to earn my teaching certificate for secondary education.
I am married and have two sons, ages 12 and 7. They attend Covenant Christian School in Tuscumbia, Alabama.
I started in the ministry in 1986, serving in the United Methodist Church. I never attended seminary because the United Methodist seminaries are so liberal. So I began to read as much as I could to help my ministry. As a result of this reading and some practical outworkings of the ministry, I experienced a change in my theology in the summer of 1993. I went from being a conserative Wesleyan to a conservative Calvinist.
The major problem that I've had since then is finding a place to pastor. The area I live in has practically no reformed witness and there are not that many in the entire region. I would like to help plant a church or churches, but have not found the help to do that yet. I would love to pastor a church, but most churches will not consider someone without a seminary degree. So what I am seeking is to be ordained under a hardship/exceptional circumstances clause and to pastor or plant a church.
