Pastor Ron Royalty

Ron Royalty was saved in 1968 at the age of 20 and called to preach a little over a year later. After finishing his college degree, he enrolled in Temple Baptist Theological Seminary to pursue the Master of Divinity and Master of Religious Education degrees which he finished in 1974.

Immediately following graduation, the Royalty's moved to Oakland, MN where he pastored the Oakland Baptist Church there for nine years. In 1983, the Lord led them to Poland, OH for the purpose of serving as assistant pastor at the Gospel Baptist Church and starting the Christian school ministry at that church. He was called to pastor Gospel Baptist in 1988 when the senior pastor left to enter the field of evangelism and has served in that position since that time.

The Royalty's have been married for 47 years and have five children and seventeen grandchildren. All of their children are serving the Lord in some capacity – three in full-time service.
