Ronda was born in West Bend, Wisconsin (“Go Packers!,” exclaims Ronda). She moved to Cut Bank, Montana when she was 9 yrs old. Her family eventually moved to Laurel in 1984 and quickly got plugged into New Life Church. Ronda had received Christ into her life when she was 5, so when she came to New Life she quickly got involved with what God was doing. She took part in Youth Group, served in the nursery, and served in children’s ministry for a number of years. After graduating high school, she joined YWAM (Youth with a Mission), where she devoted 5 months to the ministry. After returning to New Life, she served in youth ministry, women’s ministry, nursing home ministry and music ministry. In addition she did lay counseling as well as speaking whenever God opened the door. In 2004, Ronda enrolled in the Ministers in Training Bible School through New Life Church of which she graduated in 2006 and was licensed and ordained that same year.

Ronda is particularly passionate about seeing people come to the Lord and become true disciples. This passion starts first with her two girls, Kayla and Hannah, of whom she desires to become great women of God. Beyond that, she loves speaking the word of God and desires to one day travel throughout the world bringing the gospel to all people through preaching, prayer and encouragement.

Interests:  she enjoys doing anything that involves her husband Don and her kids, spending time with friends and family, reading the Bible and other teaching books, watching an occasional Hallmark channel “tear jerker,” and walking her dog named Snickers.
