Dr. Richard E. Taylor
Dick was the Senior Pastor of Grace Bible Fellowship Church from 1982 - 2016. He and his wife Joyce are the parents of six children. In addition to his roles as pastor, husband, and father, Dick is a lover of history and its stories! He enjoys researching the history of the Bible Fellowship Church, the Civil War, and the Taylor family.
Dick's personal history has its origins in Montrose, PA, where he was born in 1947. In 1969 he earned a BA in Philosophy and Religion at Ursinus College. That same spring, he and Joyce, also a student at Ursinus, were married. While continuing his studies at Westminster Theological Seminary, from 1969-1973, Dick served as a student assistant at Graterford Bible Fellowship Church. He was then called to be Pastor of Faith Bible Fellowship Church in Spring City. Nine years later he began his ministry here at Grace Bible Fellowship Church. During his time in Wallingford, Dick earned the Doctor of Ministry degree from Westminster Theological Seminary. Additional denominational responsibilities Dick has within the Bible Fellowship Church are serving as Chairman of the Board of Church Extension and Secretary of the Ministerial Candidate Committee.
Dick enjoys a good conversation over a cup of coffee!
