Happy Birthday, Elder Knapp!
This past summer Richard Knapp, long-time pastor in the Montana Conference, celebrated his 87th birthday. The Belgrade Adventist Church held a party in his honor in October.
Knapp began his pastoral career in the Southern New England Conference in 1948. He and his wife, Fern, came to Montana in 1962, and he has pastored in nearly every district in the conference. Even in retirement he continues to serve. He worked as a part-time pastor in a couple of churches for a number of years after retiring. And he still accepts speaking appointments whenever he can in the churches nearest his home in Livingston, Mont.
People all over Montana know and love Pastor Knapp. His greatest joy is still sharing the love of Jesus and the hope of His soon return.
