About Ron
  • Education: I received my Bachelor of Science in Bible from the Philadelphia College of Bible in 1996.

  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: My delivery on Sunday morning never is exactly what my manuscript says. I try to use the information of the manuscript as a guidline for what the Holy Spirit will say through me.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Every message must begin by impacting my life first.
  • Family: Married for 30 years with four almost adult children. I live have lived in Levittown PA for the past 22 years. Answering the call to ministry later in life, I attended Phildadelphia College of the Bible from 1992 to 1996.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: They have never heard me preach.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: Hard to say, but she says they are great.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Take your time. Don’t try to change a church overnight.
  • Books that have had an impact: The Purpose Driven Church
  • Hobbies: Motorcycle riding and fishing
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Come to Jesus!
  • What I want on my tombstone: Not Perfect, But Always Being Perfected

  • Continue The Journey

    Contributed on May 7, 2008

    There are a lot of "religions" and "belief" systems that sound pretty convincing. But when you have been planted properly, why even consider them, just "Continue the Journey."

    Introduction I. Maybe you have recently read a book or article about so-called “near death” experiences. A. I admit, I really haven’t read a complete book or even an article on the subject, but I know that there are many out there. B. I have heard people relate their “experience” on more

  • Three Components Of Ministry

    Contributed on Apr 23, 2008

    Why do we gather each week in this thing we call church? What is supposed to result from our time together. In this section of Colossians Paul gives us "Three Motivations For Ministry"

    Introduction: I. What is the purpose of church? II. What is supposed to be accomplished at and by church? III. In other words, why come, what is supposed to happen as a result of my being here? IV. If you listen to many of those in church leadership, and many church goers, you will get more

    Introduction: I. I have a friend, a co-worker to be more specific, who comes from an American Indian heritage. A. He is actually quite proud of his background, B. In talking with him about Christ, I also discovered that he claims Christ as his savior. 1. Sounds good right. 2. That more

  • All Things New Again

    Contributed on Mar 25, 2008

    Faith in Christ makes all things new again. This sermon was inspired by the song title "All Things New Again" by Brad Paisley and Sara Evans

    17 Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold new things have come. 18 Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ, and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the more
