Klinton was raised in a pastor’s home in rural central Illinois. Being a part of large family with two sets of twins, it was not hard for Klinton to see his need for a Savior. He was saved at age six and few years later dedicated his life to be used of the Lord in any area he saw fit. Throughout high-school and into the earlier part of college God started to give Klinton a heart for this generation’s youth and pastoral ministry. Klinton received a Bachelor of Science degree in Pastoral Studies and Church Ministries at Maranatha Baptist University in Watertown, Wisconsin. While attending college, he met Andrea, a Piano Performance major from Texas, and they were married in 2014.
In 2014, God led Klinton and Andrea to First Baptist Church in Rochelle, Illinois where he served as Youth Pastor. Klinton was over all the children’s ministries, the music ministry, as well as participated in the church’s annual teen rally, Farmtastic. In December 2016, the Lord brought the Richerson family to Berean where Klinton is the assistant pastor leading the student, music, and camp ministries. Klinton and Andrea are the proud parents of a beautiful baby girl, Elise.
