All Campus Worship
November 2, 2018
Please join us as we unite with fellow Christians around campus to worship together as one body.
The speaker will be Rick Stephens and Vineyard’s Alive College Ministry will be leading worship.
Rick founded Horizon Hobby, Inc. in 1985 from the basement of his home, along with 3 other industry veterans. Over 28 years Horizon became a world leader in the design, manufacture, marketing, and distribution of hobby products. The company came to employ over 700 people with facilities in Champaign, IL; Ontario, CA; Harlow, England; Elmshorn, Germany; and Shanghai, China. The company was sold in 2014. Since then Rick and his wife Jeanene have established Investres, LLC, an organization with the purpose of investing in people, projects and possibilities. This has involved real estate investments, building a Guest House for an orphanage in Haiti, and co-chairing Vision 2020 – A $35 million campaign for the new Carle/Illinois College of Medicine.
Rick became a Christian during his time in college through the help of college ministries. He is a graduate of the University of Illinois. He has been a significant supporter of Christian organizations such as the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Pinnacle Forum and Lead Like Jesus. He also lead the charge for the creation of the eponymous Stephens Family YMCA/Larkin’s Place in Champaign.
Rick and Jeanene have been married 46 years and have 3 married daughters and 8 grandchildren.
