Ron Edmondson is the pastor at Immanuel Baptist Church, a church leader and the planter of two churches. He passionate about planting churches, but also helping established churches thrive. He loves assisting pastors and those in ministry think through leadership, strategy and life. His specialty is organizational leadership, so in addition to his role as a pastor, as he has time, Ron consults with church and ministry leaders. Ron has more than 35 years leadership experience, mostly as a self-employed business owner, and has been in full-time ministry for over 15 years. He has successfully led the restart of one church and the planting of two churches, and is now seeing God’s hand tremendously in church revitalization. Ron has a seminary master’s and a master’s in organizational leadership. He once helped lead (as an elected official) a mid-sized city, where he served as Vice Mayor and Finance Chair. The greatest times for Ron are with my wife Cheryl and their amazing adult sons, Jeremy, his wife Mary, and their youngest son Nate. Over 20 years ago, Ron founded a non-profit ministry called Mustard Seed Ministry, which provides devotional resources, conducts family, marriage and parenting, and church leadership seminars. Ron's INTJ personality on the Myers Briggs indicator means he has big ideas, he loves creative and critical thinking and he loves to see progress. Ron is usually around people, but craves down time. For years he was usually training for either a half or full marathon. Running was his most productive thinking time. Knee problems in recent years have caused him to stop running, but he is committed to finding the time he need to fuel my mind, body and spirit.

12 Indications a Church is Making Disciples

I’ve often heard people say you can’t measure discipleship. I don’t know if that’s true. Granted, it’s still going to be subjective, as is this post, but I believe the Bible gives us clear indications someone has been discipled.

I have often watched leaders struggle to recover from a mistake made that probably didn’t have to be as personally or professionally damaging to them as it was. They simply didn’t respond well enough and it cost them more than it should have.

5 Leadership Reflections from the Life of David

The best book from which to find leadership principles is the Bible. I love reading about King David. From his time in the wilderness and serving as king ‒ good and bad ‒ we learn a great deal about leadership and what is required to successfully lead.
