ron foster . minister of music
Ron is a worshiper in the truest sense. Dynamic, spirit-filled, and sincere, Ron came to BBC in Fall of 2008. Called to music ministry as a young man, Ron will freely tell you that he strayed in the ways of the world. Ron says "It took nearly 15 years before I began finding my way back to my Lord. Music is my passion and ministry in song is my calling. God takes a broken man and makes something that He can use if we'll let Him." Ron has been in the ministry now for 15 years.
Family: Right-Hand Wife Tina, Sons Jeremy (and daughter-in-law Juliana) and Ronnie. soon to be a grandparent to Baby Ellie!
