Myers , FL Stu Austin, Associate Pastor New Hope Evangelical
Ron provided our senior members a Biblical foundation for their
calling as grandparents. Each attendee left with a host of ideas to make
their own and share with their grandchildren. The session 'Grandparenting
More Effectively' was a blast that many are still talking about.
IN Glen Francis, Pastor of St. Andrews Evangelical
The Weekend promoted relationship building with the Lord, with our
family members, and with members of our congregation. All of this was
done in a creative refreshing style. Our people were impacted and inspired!
The joyful attitude was contagious. Ron is a masterful facilitator who
smiles from his heart!
IN Jerry Van Auken, Pastor
We hosted the Weekend at my former church, Tabernacle Presbyterian,
at the end of our interium pastor time and the beginning of our new pastor's
coming! The timing was perfect! What a tremendous way to unite our people
of all ages around a common theme of upbuilding. The Weekend gave us a
jump-start to new beginnings."
MI Bill Moore, Founding Pastor of Trinity Evangelical
God has certainly gifted Ron in many ways. His humor is contagious;
creativity exceptional; and ability to connect with a multitude as well
as individuals makes him one of the most significant communicators in
the Christian world today. Many speakers can hold a crowd with their interesting
anecdotes. But few can wed deep Biblical teaching with relevant illustrations
and current needs. I can honestly attest that this ministry was the
single most effective ministry in the 20 year history of our congregation.
OH Rich Lanning, Pastor of Evangelical Community
Our church invited Dr. Rand to lead a conference on issues of prayer,
personal evangelism, making Biblical choices, and persevering in faith
when surrounded by difficult circumstances. Ron genuinely modelled what
he taught us. I feel that God used this conference to renew our sense
of urgency especially in the areas of prayer and sharing our faith."
PA Keith Fink, Pastor of St. Paul's
We had a weekend that focused on Friendship Evangelism. People
responded well to Ron's passion, humor, and burning love for our Lord.
He was practical, down to earth, and encouraging to people who might feel
intimidated and ill-equipped to share their faith. As a result of his
initiative, I had a ton of people commit to pray for me and my family
on specific days of the week."
PA Bob Shull, Former Associate Pastor North Park Evangelical
Ron really helped our congregation experience the ministry of affirmation
and encouragement. His practical application of God's Word, creative and
engaging presentations, humor, and pastoral sensitvity will long be remembered.
His call to prayer will also continue in the lives of all those who attended
any part of the Weekend. Linda and I also personally
benfitted from Ron's wisdom and insights as a pastor of many years."
