Most guys get a sports car for their mid-life crisis; Ron got a call to ministry. After a tour of duty in U.S. Army and many years in bank processing, he and his family moved to Rochester, Minnesota, to attend Minnesota Bible College (now Crossroads College). He ministered in Clarksville, Iowa, and Parkersburg, Indiana, before being called to serve with and alongside the congregation at New Brighton Christian Church in August of 2000.
Ron has been married to the love of his life, Judy, since May of 1985. They have three children: Bradley, John, and Rebekah.

She currently works as a Special Education teacher for transition aged students (18-21), when not serving the youth. Alyssa married her high school sweetheart Jeff Lane, and they have two children, Sawyer & Adalyn. In her spare time, she likes to clean, play sports, and spend time hanging out with family & friends.
