Richard Fields is the founder and Executive Director of Helping Hands In Motion Inc., (HHIM). For almost 30 years, HHIM has been a support ministry to missionaries and national pastors in various countries.

Helping Hands is a 501(C) 3 Non-Profit Corporation and is a recognized Freestanding Organization within the Church of God of Anderson, Indiana, and seeks partnerships with churches, individuals, businesses, and organizations that can partner with us to come alongside the overseas ministries to help them reach their vision and goals as God has directed.

As Richard seeks ways and avenues to resource and empower the indigenous pastors and leaders, he serves as a liaison between the United States ministries, churches, and individuals and the overseas ministries. Presently, HHIM is aiding and assisting Pastors and/or National Leaders in Northern India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Haiti and surrounding countries.   We also have served in Jamaica, Belize, Cuba, Honduras, Mexico, and Paraguay, as well as in some other countries which are not listed for safety reasons. Richard has traveled to all of these countries and keeps in constant contact with the pastors and leaders so he will have current, new, and fresh information to relay to the United States partners.

HHIM is aiding the indigenous ministries by providing for several new buildings – churches, orphanages, and discipleship centers; by assisting in meeting medical needs; by supplying transportation help; by raising financial support for the pastors and leaders; by investing in sustainable businesses, and by meeting any other needs of the ministries.

Richard started HHIM in 1993; but in 2003, he stepped out in faith accepting the call to go full time with Helping Hands In Motion because the national pastors and leaders looked to him as their head pastor. As a faith-based ministry, HHIM has grown rapidly resulting in many souls being won for Christ through the sacrifice and efforts of Richard, the national pastors, and the ministry leaders.

Before becoming the founder and Executive Director of Helping Hands In Motion, he served as the Missions Coach on the Executive Staff of Florida Church of God Ministries, and pastored churches in West Virginia, Kentucky, and Florida. Richard grew up in Charleston, West Virginia, and lived there until 1987, at which time, he entered Warner University in Lake Wales, Florida, to earn his Bachelor of Arts degree in ministry. He has two married daughters and four grandchildren, all of whom live in Florida, and all of whom bring him great joy.
