In November 2005, Ron answered the call to be the pastor of FCL. Ron is quoted saying…“We have prayed for the Lord to bring people to FCL from all walks of life, all denominational backgrounds, and all ages, who have one thing in common – a desire for truth – and to apply that truth in the way we live. God has answered that prayer!”
