Ive heard hundreds of outstanding speakers. Rons
ability to communicate Biblical truth in practical ways makes him one
of the best! He makes you enjoy learning.

Revival & Awakening
UpBuilding Ministries and Dr. Ron Rand are two of Gods
special gifts to the Church of Jesus Christ. The name of the Ministry
says it all! People are built up in the Lord and learn practical skills
for life and ministry. Ron's spirituality, creativity, love for the Church,
and wonderful sense of humor enable him to impact a wide spectrum of ages
and spiritual levels. I recommend the Ministry and Ron with highest praise.
Valley, MN Mel Steinbron, Founder, Lay Pastors Ministry
I served with Ron as a partner in ministry on the same church
staff from 19761987. He has a long established track record of building
up congregations spiritually, relationally, and numerically. He blends
his pastoral experiences with creativity and depth into every UpBuilding
Weekend he leads. Over the years I have witnessed that people enjoy making
major decisions for their lives through this Ministry.
OH William Duke, Monfort Hts Elementary School
During my tenure as Principal, I was committed to improving family
life. I invited Dr. Rand to conduct a Seminar in our gymnasium. Dr. Rand
taught us ten important principles of communicating respect and dignity
within the family. The highlight of the evening was when he got each of
us to immediately apply the principles. Over 250 attended. The response
was overhelmingly positive!
PA David Bleivik, Former Gen. Presbyter, Washington Pres
I became aware of Dr. Rand through C. Peter Wagners class
on church growth. He stated that Rons evangelism training was the
best relational evangelism program in the country! Our church in Anchorage
invited Ron to help us develop an outreach ministry. Our people effectively
applied his teachings on friendship evangelism. This led to a significant
increase in our attendance.
SOUTH AFRICA Ron Page, Director, FATHERS Ministry
My life has been profoundly changed because of Dr. Ron Rand. I first
joined his FATHERS Ministry in 1985 and have been a part of it ever since.
Through his several visits to our country, he has trained me and several
lay persons to spawn over 200 ministries throughout South Africa. Ron
has now begun to lead UpBuilding Weekends in South Africa with the hope
of equipping us to do the same throughout our country.
