Richard Vore has been a Bahá’í since November of 1969. He is retired and has served the Bahá’í community in many capacities before and since moving to Wichita, Kansas in 1980.  He took his first Wilmette Institute course (Writing Biographies and Histories) in 2017, with the aim of "attempting to write a history of the Bahá’í Faith in Wichita." This is the fruit of his endeavors.
