Rico is the Senior Minister (Evangelism) at All Souls, Langham Place in London. Joining in 1994 during the later years of the ministry of John Stott, his main role is to help the hundreds of enquirers about the Christian faith who come through the doors of the church each year. He has also developed the Christianity Explored course, which introduces people to Jesus through studying the Gospel of Mark.
Born in Chile in 1966, to the son of a businessman and a nurse, Rico grew up in Uganda and Zaire. He studied history at Bristol University and trained for ordination at Wycliffe College, Oxford (when he wasn’t playing rugby.)
Other than rugby, Rico's hobbies include playing golf and watching films. He married Lucy in December 2008 and they have three young children - Peter, Daniel, and Mercy.
