Ron Torkelsen

I am retired after 43 years of pastoring. I spent 16 years of my career as a teacher with a "classroom congregation." Bible teaching is pastoring when you consider the objective of pointing young people to Jesus. My experience began in Marshalltown, Iowa in 1976 and took me to California, Oregon, Nevada, and Florida. Twenty-seven years was dedicated to "youth ministry" with the balance of time in Senior Pastoral Ministry. I have a lovely wife and three delightful children.
