Pastor Ron is a 1975 graduate of Washington State University (WSU), and also holds a J.D. degree from Willamette University School of Law (1978). His Master of Divinity degree is from Luther Northwestern Theological Seminary (1983), and he was ordained that same year in the American Lutheran Church (ALC), one of the predecessor bodies of the North American Lutheran Church (NALC). Pastor Ron has three adult children: Erica, John, and Gretchen.
