This website is a new teaching video ministry and educational resource provided to you by Rich and Donna Vermillion. With respect to theology, it is designed to promote a “Berean” form of Christianity (Acts 17:11-12) wherein God’s people know how to rightly divide the Word of Truth (2 Timothy 2:15) through logical analysis of the Scriptures. However, the material of this website will eventually cover many other topics, as well. Business, economics, history, archeology, politics, science, technology — and in particular, the study of logic and applied rational thinking — are all subjects that will be explained as the content of this website builds.
Rich Vermillion is an ordained minister, award-winning author, and a U.S. Marine. (Yes, that is a very young Donna and brand-new-Marine Rich Vermillion shown in the header at the top of this page.) He is also an autodidactic scholar of theology and economics, as well as numerous other subjects.
As a part of his public ministry, Rev. Vermillion has served the Body of Christ as a pastor in three U.S. states, and as an itinerate minister in several more. He has spoken to diverse groups ranging from just a few and up to 8,000 in number, with typical audiences ranging from 300 to 2,500 in size. He also served as a professor in a church-based Bible school, in which he taught two of their courses: “Marriage and the Family” and “Christian Doctrine.” Richard has also appeared on numerous television and radio broadcasts in the U.S. and internationally, and is the author of three books, with much more planned to be completed in the future.
Rich’s desire to expand his developing “Economic Theology” project sent him back to school in 2012. As a result, he now holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with an International Business concentration. He completed that undergraduate degree summa cum laude in 2015 from Walden University as the first recipient of their academic Todd Benson Scholarship for Leadership in Business and Management. Also since 2012, Rich has held a NASBITE Certified Global Business Professional certification. Previously, in 2005, he earned three certifications through Cornell University: Strategic Leadership, Proactive Leadership, and Financial Management. Most recently, Rich completed his Masters in Business Administration (MBA) at Western Governors University Texas in 2017 as a Texas Trailblazers academic scholarship recipient.
Donna Vermillion is an accomplished writer and preacher/teacher in her own right. Accordingly, she will occasionally be inspired to write on one of the Vermillions’ websites and has recently penned her first book, which is due to be published in 2018. Nevertheless, she presently spends most of her time taking care of their four children. She has a Bachelor of Arts in History from Virginia Commonwealth University.
Rich and Donna have been lovingly joined in marriage for over 27 years, and are companions in ministry for over a quarter century now. More than anything, they love Jesus Christ and His Word, as well as sharing both of them with those who are willing to listen to godly instruction.
