For 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 for 31 years. Together they have a son, Nathan, who is married to Sarah. Nathan and Sarah live in West Point, Georgia, and they recently welcomed their son, Bennett James, into the family. Ron and Pam are greatly enjoying their new grandson!
Ron is involved in designing and producing teaching liturgy videos as part of the team at “The Work of the People,” a media company that produces visual media for missions and worship. He is also an active leader and speaker with Central India Christian Mission Youth Conference in Damoh, India, as well as Lake Aurora Christian Camp Men’s Retreat; additionally, he has designed and led pastor conferences for over 300 church leaders in the Southern Philippines.
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.”
