You could say Ron's resume looks like a guy who cannot keep a job - serving in the Brethren Church National Offices for the fifth time, has served as pastor/staff of five congregations, and was twice on faculty/staff at Ashland Theological Seminary. He and wife Norma recently moved to Canton, Ohio, and enjoy spoiling their daughter, son-in-law, and (especially) their two grandchildren.
