Rico Tice is a senior minister at the church my family and I attend at All Souls, Langham Place in Central London. Rico is married to Lucy and they have three children. He is a Bible teacher and founder of the Christianity Explored course. This is a seven week study through the Gospel of Mark in the New Testament. At any one time there are 10,000 courses running around the world in over 100 countries with 122 official translations.
More recently Rico has helped to develop two further courses, Discipleship Explored which looks through the New Testament book of Philippians what it means to find joy in Christ and Life Explored which is an overview of the Bible as a whole.
On this podcast Rico and I explore:
Why being responsible for evangelism at All Soul's Church is much more than a job role, but something he is deeply passionate about.
His formative experiences growing up, including how the death of his godfather in 1982 had a profound impact on Rico's life.
Continual reminders of the brevity of life.
The importance of crossing the pain line when talking to others of the important issues around death and judgement.
In a world of different religions why it is not arrogant to say Jesus is the only way to God.
The importance of reading the Bible for yourself and doing so in community with others.
How Christ's death rescues us from the penalty, power and the presence of sin.
How the qualification to be a Christian disciple is not are you good enough, but are you bad enough.
The importance of a right understanding of hell and judgement.
Lessons in life Rico has learnt from his failures and mistakes.
Two books that have profoundly influenced Rico's life.
Why he also has a collection of over 300 books on rugby!
