It’s remarkable what God has done through Ron over the last 25 years. I believe he has the most significant (in terms of impact) calling of God to youth in America. The team under his leadership has given youth the courage to dream the dreams of God for their lives and to believe that they can actually make a difference in this nation. What a reputation of integrity, humility, a servant’s heart, steadfastness and directing all attention to the Lord!
