Bishop Will Willimon says, “Rev. Rice was well known and well loved – as were the delicious meals he made for Strengthening the Black Church events. He was very effective in ministry serving churches as a local pastor. We will miss him. We remember his wife Jesse and his children in our prayers during this time.”

Please keep the Rice family in your prayers.
