For over 30 years, Ron's passion has been telling the story of God and connecting others to that story. Ron grew up in Orlando, Florida, regularly attending Pine Hills Christian Church (the same church in which his wife Pam was raised). During his last two years of high school, he began to feel the tug of ministry on his heart. After graduating from Atlanta Christian College (ACC - now Point University), Ron briefly worked at ACC as the Director of Student Recruitment. His first preaching ministry was with First Christian Church of Mobile, Alabama, from 1984 to 1990. In 1990, Ron moved his family from Mobile to Houston, Texas, where he was blessed to serve as Senior Pastor at Cy-Fair Christian Church for 21 years before answering God's call to Lanett.
Ron and Pam have been married since 1982. Together they have a son, Nathan, who is married to Sarah. Nathan and Sarah are currently ministering at Rescue House Church in North Carolina, along with their son, Bennett James. Ron and Pam are greatly enjoying every moment they are able to spend with their grandson!
Ron’s heart can best be understood in his own words: “We live in a world that is achingly beautiful and awesomely ugly. The question for the people of God is how we live in that tension. My passion in life is to creatively communicate and live out the Gospel in such a way that God’s redemptive touch is felt in that tension within the life of the Church.”
