Chaplain Rickey Hargrave and wife Julie.

Rickey grew up in rural Collin County, Texas, the eldest of four children born to Richard and Aletha Hargrave.

During his first senior year at Dallas Baptist College. Rickey met and married the love of his life, Julie. With her beauty and grace, Julie attracted Rickey's attention, and it is easy to see why Rickey fell in love with her. She is the perfect mate for Rickey. Julie is highly articulate and gifted in mathematics. On the other hand, as Rickey tells the story of their romance, only the Grace of God attracted Julie to Rickey.

Being raised in the large city of Fort Worth, Texas, Julie's career ambitions have led her to Grayson College where she teaches mathematics.  She is professor of Mathematics at Grayson College also an Adjunct Professor at Dallas Baptist University in the School of Mathematics. Her commitment to use her spiritual gifts and her talents for the Body of Christ create an excellent partner for Rickey and enrich their ministry at Chestnut Community Church.

Rickey spends time each week preparing to teach the Word of God, and his graduate studies at Southwestern Seminary, Luther Rice Seminary, and Liberty University enhance his ability to teach and to minister spiritually to the congregation and to others in the community. Rickey holds a Master of Divinity from Luther Rice University, and he earned a Doctor of Divinity from Master's International.

As a hospital chaplain, Rickey's training with the International Conference of Police Chaplains, Federation of Fire Chaplains, International Critical Incident Stress Foundation, and the Association of Traumatic Stress Specialists provide additional resources to equip Rickey in ministering to those involved in trauma situations that he encounters at the hospital on a daily basis.

Rickey and Julie have two children, Stephen and Christy, who both have unique gifts and abilities that make them highly successful in their chosen fields, and they are both spiritually committed to serve the Lord in their lives.

Son Stephen, is owner of Dallas Premier Mizuno Volleyball Club in Plano, Texas. Steve has a degree from Criswell College.

Rickey and Julie's daughter, Christy, and her husband, Matt Cooper, have blessed them with two sets of TWIN GIRLS! They are so excited to be the proud grandparents of Mallory and Marlo, born in 2010, and Carley and Claire, born in November, 2013.
