Rickey Primrose


Rickey grew up in a small town in southern Oklahoma. He came into a relationship with God through Christ at a young age and surrendered to God’s call on his life into pastoral ministry while a student at the University of Oklahoma. God gave him a deep love for His Church, His word, and for His name to be known among the nations.

Rickey went on to graduate from OU in 2007 with a degree in religious studies. He also received his Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2010 and completed a PhD in Systematic Theology in 2018. He has been on staff in various roles at MacArthur Blvd while in seminary and has served as Lead Pastor since January 2018.

Rickey is married to Megan. They have three sons and a daughter by birth: Isaiah, Judah, Joshua, and Eliana. Rickey and Megan are engaged in foster care ministry, bringing kids who need temporary refuge into their home.

Three of his favorite verses in all of Scripture are Joshua 1:7-9 because they teach that true success is achieved by having the courage to obey God’s Word despite the circumstances, the culture, and the cost. His desire for MacArthur Blvd is that we would be a diverse church that delights in God first as we develop and deploy every member to make disciples. Rickey’s passion is for MacArthur Blvd to reflect the ethnic and generational diversity of the kingdom of God and the surrounding community. He desires every member to go deep in their communion with the Father and to be equipped to go out and make disciples wherever they live, work, and play. In this way, he gauges success not by the church’s seating capacity, but by its sending capacity.
