Ron Ball has served churches in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Oklahoma over the 40 years of tenure as a United Methodist pastor. He was appointed as District Superintendent of the Montgomery-Opelika District in 2007 and served until June of 2013 when he took a retired status.
Presently, he is working as a Coach with SLI, as well as serving as Director of Congregational Excellence in Alabama-West Florida.
Because he loves people, evangelism has always been an important part of Ron’s ministry. Four times he has received District Harry Denman Awards for evangelism, he is a certified trainer for Evangelism Explosion, a Growth Plus Consultant, a preacher for Camp Meetings and revivals, and has been active in both the Big Bend and Blue Lake Walk to Emmaus movements.
One of his great loves is Missions. He has helped lead Mission trips to Haiti, Mexico, Central and South America, as well as trips within the U.S. The “watchword” for Ron’s ministry is based on John 5:19, where Jesus said, “The things I do I do not do on my own initiative. I only do what I see the Father doing, and in like manner.”
He and his wife, Charlotte, have been married since 1965. They have 3 married daughters and 10 grandchildren.
