About Dr. Ronald
  • Education: I have a ThD and a BRE. I have been recently certified as a Master Mental Health Coach.
  • Experience: I have been involved in almost all areas of ministry since my salvation in 1975. I have sought to always be ready in season and out. I have followed Paul’s exhortation to Timothy to do work that is not always within the scope of my gifts when it was there to be done and I have had opportunity to do it.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: You will agree with me and disagree with me. I tell the preachers I give this site to that they will find stuff they like and stuff they don't like. They will build a sermon from that interaction so I have inspired them either way. I hope I can inspire you to be a Berean and search the Scriptures rather than just quoting me or some other preacher like a parrot that says the words they do not understand.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: My sermon from Jeremiah, Be Not Afraid of Their Faces, moved one woman to overcome her fear and get involved in soul-winning. Since I am a bit of a circuit riding preacher it is hard for to know what the long term effect of my preaching has been. Most people only stay in a church for 2.1 years so even the pastors that I work with do not see the results of their planting and watering. It would be great if people stayed longer, but I guess one positive effect is that it keeps us preachers ’umble Also my series on the Power of Holy Women. One lady said it saved her marriage and she sent the book to her sister in Georgia. Hopefully, it helped her as well.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: The Holy Spirit has given you one or more gifts to use and you will be miserable until you do and pew sitting is not one of His gifts.
  • Family: I have been married over 50 years. I have a daughter who gave me six grandchildren. My son gave me one granddaughter before he was taken to Glory. I have five great-grandchildren.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: Both my parents are deceased. My father-in-law had always encouraged me over the years though he had only recently become a believer before he passed away.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: If I had a few more folks like her, I might run for public office, but then that would be a demotion from serving the King. My wife always enjoys my teaching and preaching. Her only criticism is that she wishes I would stand still more. C];-)}|>
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Be yourself. As a young preacher, I had a lot of men give me advice and I wanted to be teachable. An older man would put his arm around me and say, "Son, you have a lot of potential if you would only ..." Well, I would take that advice only to have another older man say the same thing but he would suggest that I do what the other man had me change. God called me, not some imitation of another preacher or the mold that some saint has for preachers. If He loved you and died for you, He will make you who He wants you to be.
  • Books that have had an impact: Principles of Spiritual Growth by Miles J. Standford John Wesley’s Journal Bunyan’s Grace Abounding for the Chief of Sinners The Best of A. W. Tozer Andrew Murray Leonard Ravenhill Biographies of Brainerd and Mueller Foxes’s Book of Martyrs I usually like my author’s dead a hundred years or more because they will not change their opinion or get wrapped up in some fad. I have very few contemporary men that I read. Most have axes to grind and halos to shine. Besides, we are in an age of apostasy so discernment needs to be at the highest level.
  • Hobbies: Poetry, singing, volunteering.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Be sure you are saved and serve like it is your last day on earth for it may well be.
  • What I want on my tombstone: When the herd is headin’ fer the cliff, it t’ain’t bad bein’ a maverick.
