Ron and his wife Dale joined Funston Baptist June of 1994.

"Jesus Christ invited me, at the young age of nine, to receive Him as my Lord and Savior and I did.  Since then following Christ has been my greatest priority. Words could never express the joy and liberty I've known as a servant of the Lord. Of all the good things that have come into my life, being called a child of God is my greatest treasure."

My wife is Dale Britt Shiver since December of 1982, and we have three children, two sons-in-law, one daughter-in-law and ten grandchildren. Born and raised in Camilla, Georgia, I earned my High School diploma from Westwood Schools. After marrying Dale and having our three children, I attended The Baptist College of Florida where I earned a B.A. in Theology. My favorite author is Dr. John MacArthur, and I enjoy spending time with my family, deer hunting, and exercising. In all sincerity, my heart's cry is to see God's kingdom advance.  May He be pleased to daily do it in me and through me. "For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more;" (1Corinthians 9:19 NKJV)
