Ron and Sandra are from the Pacific Northwest and both are graduates of Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon. Local church ministry has been important in their lives together since their marriage in 1983.
Ron has served with the Antioch pastoral staff. While in the middle of ministry and career planning, they were challenged to pray specifically about ministry opportunities in Belgium. After prayer and input from mentors and colleagues they were convinced this was the direction God would have them pursue. They have lived and ministered in Belgium since 1994.
Ron teaches at the Evangelische Theologische Faculteit (ETF) near Leuven, Belgium. This international seminary helps train church leaders, teachers and pastors from around the world. Ron and Sandra continue serving in the local church with Ron focusing on teaching and preaching, and Sandra on Bible teaching, leadership development, discipleship, and other helping ministries.
