Ron has been pastor of East Ave Church since 2002. He hails from Texas, graduated from Northwest Nazarene University in Idaho, and spent a decade in youth ministry in Washington before moving to Chico. As a history nerd, his teaching style digs into the historical, cultural and geographical context of Biblical stories. From this we can understand what the original author meant to say to the original audience, then can apply these lessons to daily life. Ron has a gorgeous wife (Susie), two grown daughters and a son-in-law, a busy grand baby, and a restored surfer-bum 1969 Volkswagen bus.
