Richard acknowledged faith in Christ at eleven years old with the Western Avenue Christian Church, Los Angeles, California. While living in Covington, he exhibited his faith by being a part of the community choir and being a member of a number of churches in the city of Covington.

But the Lord moved on his heart in January, 1969 to become a member of the Ninth Street Baptist Church by baptism. He served there in a number of capacities; Sunday School Teacher, Deacon, Treasurer. In 1974, Richard was licensed to preach the gospel. Since that time, he was associate minister with the church until 1979 when he was ordained.

On the resignation of Rev. Henry Poyntz, the church immediately asked Rev. Fowler to be interim pastor. Within a few months the church was moved to have Rev. Fowler as pastor in 1983, where he still serves.

Rev. Fowler was in the military during the era of the Vietnam War. As a service member in the Navy and Army, he served while assigned within the Continental United States and abroad with units deployed in Europe.Richard and Loroma Fowler
