WASH., DC – Two compelling and nationally popular speakers at Christian men’s and

Community Church in Mitchellville MD.
Rick Rigsby and Jerry Boykin will be featured speakers at the day-long conference for over hundreds of

Rick Rigsby is the President of Rick Rigsby Communications and Founder of Rick Rigsby Ministries in
Dallas Texas. Considered among America’s finest speakers, Dr. Rigsby teaches at Texas A&M, where he

faith, getting a better body, mentoring, unlocking your potential, computer bible study, leadership,
