Pastor Richard and Ladonna became the pastors of Grace Community in August 1995, sensing the call of God to impact Flower Mound and the Lake Cities with the love of Jesus Christ. “God literally broke my heart over Flower Mound as we drove down Morriss one day,” stated Pastor Plunk. They just knew they had to be in pastoral ministry here to love this community.
Both native to Dallas, the Plunks met in church and had their first date at age 14 at a church banquet. Richard has degrees from Eastfield College, Evangel University, and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He earned his Doctor of Ministry in Church Growth from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California.
In the community, Dr. Plunk has served as a Flower Mound Police Chaplain since 2000, and he has been involved with Rotary, Chamber of Commerce, and school board committees. He also assists Santa Claus each year in multiple locations.
Richard enjoys golf, cooking, and traveling with his wife. But their ultimate family treasures are their two grandsons, Riley and Brody.
