Ron and Marianne both attended North Central University in Minneapolis, MN and upon graduation moved to Chicago where they began their 25+ years of full-time ministry by planting two churches. After 14 years in the city of Chicago, they moved to Des Moines, IA to be one of the campus pastors with Des Moines First Assembly for 6 years. In August of 2011, Pastor Ron and Marianne, along with their children Cassandra, Luke, Sarah, and Annalise, returned back to their home district of Illinois to pastor Minier Assembly. Marianne uses her elementary teaching degree to serve with her husband as the children's pastor. Their passion is to see Christ formed in the hearts of all people through the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. They are committed to equip and empower people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ who have compassion for lost souls.
