David and Kelly Richter met in Nashville, TN, in the fall of 2000, while Kelly was working for a local girl’s home and David was serving as an intern with Reformed University Fellowship at Vanderbilt University. They were married in November of 2002 and almost immediately moved to Edinburgh, Scotland to serve as short-term missionaries at the city-center Free Church of Buccleuch and Greyfriars.
After returning from the mission field, David and Kelly attended Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, MO, where Kelly earned a Masters of Counseling and David a Masters of Divinity. Then, in the summer of 2007, they moved to Rochester, MN where they lived and worked at L'Abri Fellowship and David served, first as an interim pastor, and then as an associate pastor, of Trinity Presbyterian Church (PCA).
In May of 2011, Christ The King Boston called the Richter family to move to Boston, MA, to plant a new gospel-centered church in the city of Somerville, MA. After almost ten years of church planting in Boston, the Lord called the Richters to return to Nashville in July of 2021, where David now serves as the Senior Pastor of City Church. The Richters have two wonderful children: Sam and Luci.
