Rich Latta grew up in California, graduated from Whitworth University and Fuller Seminary. He was a pastor for over forty years, mostly on the west coast but also in Chicago for four years.
Rich and his wife, Colleen, live in central California. He has three grown children and four stepchildren, all married and have given Rich and Colleen eighteen grandchildren (more on the way!). They enjoy retirement with a full, bustling, occasionally quiet household.
Rich loves reading, bicycling, playing guitar, learning violin, eating and traveling. He’s completed several vigorous bike rides, including Mt. Whitney, treks into the Sierras, and leisurely rides with Colleen on their tandem. Rich’s goal is to cycle Route 66, then across America. Several of his grown kids and grandchildren have accompanied them on this journey so far.
Rich delights in loving his Lord, his family, his friends and in discovering the newness, beauty and joy in each day.
