The Weekend was a unique approach to spiritual renewal for us. It
offered something for every single ministry group in the church. That
alone is unique to church renewal events! We confidently recommend it
to churches who desire to experience both immediate and long term effects.
KS David W. Graves, Pastor of College Church
I wholeheartedly recommend an UpBuilding Weekend to other pastors
of any denomination. I know from my own personal experience from Rons
being with us on two occasions at my former church, Springdale Nazarene
in Cincinnati, that God uses this event as a powerful tool to spiritually
change individuals, families, and a congregation. It is all done in such
a positive, humorous, enjoyable, biblical, and understandable way!
OH Keven Wentworth, Pastor of Beavercreek
I know that pastors like myself are searching for evangelists or
someone who is able to bring a different approach for the renewal of our
people. I recommend Ron for a great and unique approach in his series
of sessions intended on building up families and different focus groups
within the church. Each session spoke to deep and urgent levels. Many
hearts were uplifted!
OH Dan Walters, Pastor of Tri-County
This was our second time to host an UpBuilding the Family Weekend,
and both times we have been elated with the results. The content of Dr.
Rand's materials is Biblical and relevant to all ages. He is positive,
humorous, has the heart of an evangelist, and the energy of a 30 year
OH Doug Van Nest, District Superintendent S. W. Ohio
The most powerful session for me was the unique time of prayer with
the church leaders on Sunday morning. It helped us take a giant step toward
our goal to be a praying church. I had goose pimples
when we lifted the name of every member of our church! That session alone
can change the life of a church!
Springs, CO Harold Graves, Jr., President
It was a great priviledge to have Ron come back to our church in
West Chester, Ohio, for some specialized upbuilding. The lifestyle evangelism
training he led, set our people free to share their faith in natural and
non-threatening ways with the people in the realms of their personal acquaintances.
We literally saw the effects of it in the outreach to our day care families.
