Rich Little begins new work on Pepperdine campus
A floor littered with the foliage of popped balloons and a door plastered with cards filled with welcome and encouragement messages colored the office of the University Church of Christ’s new preaching minister last week — reminiscent of his ongoing introduction to the community.
A tri-citizen of his Australian birthplace, his British heritage and his current U.S. residence, Richard Little has found a new home in his quest for ministry in the Pepperdine community.
As an adolescent, Little says he knew he wanted to reach out to people in a special way and he thought the best mode to do this was within ministry.
“When I was around 15 I really felt a call to minister to people, and not necessarily ministering to the Church,” he said. “I found that one of the best ways to do that was to be a part of a spiritual community and use that as a platform for ministering to people.”

Little was one of the keynote speakers at a 2008 Detroit area worship assembly promoting unity among black and white congregations. Read The Christian Chronicle’s story on that event.
FeedbackRich Little did an outstanding work in Naperville, IL and served in a significant leadership role in the Chicago area, helping to launch the Chicago Celebration. He will be sorely missed here, but he is an excellent choice for the Malibu / University setting.John WrightSeptember, 18 2010
