Pastor White is the loving, caring and proud father of Ronald Jr. (LaToya) and Angel C. White of Baltimore, Maryland. We are blessed and highly favored to have one of the anointed leaders of our denomination to shepherd our congregation.
And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!" (Romans 10:15)
Through his leadership and vision, God has taken us to higher ground. Pastor Ron is a visionary, very loving, knowledgeable, and spirit-filled person who always seeks ways to empower and motivate disciples of all ages. He's always over and beyond in his service unto the Lord Jesus Christ.
He embodies the song:
“If I can help somebody as I travel along,
If I can cheer someone with a word or a song,
If I can show somebody who is going wrong,
Then my living will not be in vain.”
