President, National Co-Chairman
Rick Scarborough, a graduate of Houston Baptist University, has traveled extensively as an evangelist. He served as senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Pearland, Texas from 1990 until he resigned June 23, 2002, to give his full attention to Vision America. He earned his Masters degree at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and received a Doctorate of Ministry from Louisiana Baptist Theological Seminary.
It was through a disturbing situation involving a sex education program at his daughter's high school that Pastor Scarborough decided that "enough is enough!" He mobilized his congregation and others in the community to promote traditional Biblical values in the cultural and political arenas of Pearland, effecting dramatic and much needed changes in local policies and practices.
Out of this experience, he authored a book appropriately entitled "Enough is Enough!" which ignited interest from around the country and an opportunity for him to share the vision with pastors and laymen alike. He founded Vision America in 1998 as the motivating force to reach out across this nation to network and mobilize pastors of all denominations into the moral debates in our nation, and promote Biblical values back into every aspect of the public arena. He has been interviewed on several national programs including James Dobson's Focus on the Family, Marlin Maddoux's Point of View and Don Wildmon's American Family Radio. Salem Communications has featured his one-minute commentaries on the nationwide Network of Radio Stations.
Pastor Rick and Tommye, married in 1970, have three grown children - Richard, Misty and Kathryn, as well as two grandchildren.
