    Coaching: All levels of senior pastors, executives, senior and middle management.

    Relationship and Communication Growth: God created us to have relationships; first with Him, our mate, the Body and within community. Jesus communicated to others the way the person needed to hear things, not the way he wanted to share. Why? Because we are commanded by Paul to speak to a person “from their inside out” not from who we are. This is the model for Biblical communication and relationship building and the way Jesus shared His message to the world. Should we not do the same In ALL of our relationships?

Family

Ron and his wife live in California. 

Others

Currently Ron is doing research in the area of passion and learning models…he knows when men and women learn how to discover that “fire in their belly” they will understand more about how they are created in God’s image and where they can best serve within the body of Christ.

Ron's passion is seeing men and women grow beyond their paradigm and the "box" they so often place themselves within. His desire is to be where God desires him to be, to share what God desires him to share.
