Ron deVries is a Youth Ministry Consultant for the Christian Reformed Church in Northern Alberta, Canada and has fulfilled this calling for 9 years.
Ron also serves the Christian Reformed denomination as a Faith Formation Catalyzer for the entire province of Alberta and has recently taken on the role as co-director for the Christian Reformed Church overseeing Canadian Youth Ministries.
In all, Ron has served in the various youth ministry roles both in the local church and on the denominational level for the last 24 years.
Both roles allow him to engage with congregations, teaching and interacting on topics focused on the faith nurturing journeys of God’s children. His primary focus has been on equipping leaders who serve churches ministering to youth and young adults aged from 12-30.
Ron’s primary theological and youth ministry education comes from a lifetime of being taught this fundamental text, “as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”. This was foundational to his life as a child of the King and was further developed at Kings University in Edmonton Alberta and Princeton Seminary. Ron is a commissioned pastor for the church.
Ron has been married to Monique for 31 years and they have two children, Amanda and Shawn who are both married, Amanda to Matt, and Shawn to Roxanne.
