“Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in Heaven.”  (Matthew 5:16)

Hi, we are Rick and Judi Manis.

We are two people who thoroughly love life, because our lives have been transformed by the love and goodness of God.

We cherish our marriage and believe it is a gift from God.

We enjoy speaking, writing, and encouraging others in receiving all they’ve been given through the gift of Jesus Christ.

We love traveling the world and taking big gulps of life.

We like to take time to meet new people, enjoy good sights and good food.

We are easy going.

We love all types of people, and make no demands.

We believe that love is where it’s at and faith moves mountains.

Some of our hobbies include kayaking, meandering through Disney World, reading historical biographies, attending theatre events, and hosting Superhero parties.

We love great conversations.

Rick's Bio

Rick Manis is a spiritual encourager, author and speaker, imparting the revelation of the unconditional and unlimited love of God to individuals and groups around the world. He has written four books and developed a curriculum designed to lead people to live a life of Heaven on Earth. Rick surrendered his life to Jesus Christ in 1979 after living a life of self-destruction and addiction.

Rick attended Rhema Bible College. After serving as an associate pastor, he pioneered and pastored a church in Titusville, Florida for close to a decade. Since then he has been traveling and ministering a message of "Fullness."

Rick's message primarily centers on the awareness that we have everything we need for fulfillment in Jesus Christ. Jesus taught us about living in the Kingdom of God and loving with a supernatural type of love. This love is the most powerful force in the universe and enables us to live above the circumstances of the natural world and find victory amidst the tragedies and tribulations we encounter in this world.

Judi's Bio

Judi Manis is a partner in Rick Manis Ministries where she travels with her husband sharing the good news of the finished work of Christ, the unlimited, life-changing love of God and the reality of living in the Kingdom of Heaven now.

Her story includes 12 suicide attempts before the age of 25, multiple addictions, and childhood trauma, which led to deep insecurities and disappointment with life. In her relationship with Jesus, she inadvertently veered towards a rules-based expectation of perfection. As a result, she discovered that trying to live the Christian life in her own strength was impossible.

In 2007, she began to see the gospel in a new and beautiful light. It gave her a deeper understanding of the extent of God’s graciousness as well as her value in God’s eyes. She realized that she had been trying to attain something that was already hers in Christ. As she turned her eyes toward the truth, she experienced rest, peace and joy in herself and towards others around her.

Judi worked and traveled extensively as a missionary with Missionary Ventures International. She lived in rural Zambia, Africa, teaching teens, women, and pastors. She is an ordained minister under MVI and Rick Manis Ministries.
