With a booming voice, a take-command stage presence, and raw emotion, Ron Archer is a spellbinding speaker and a force to be reckoned with whenever he takes the stage. He has spoken at churches and in corporate settings for more than four decades. A former vice president of the S.C. Johnson Wax Co. called him the “Martin Luther King, Jr. of the corporate world who challenges the very soul of a company to be transformed.”
Ron has been connecting with audiences ever since he started preaching Sunday nights in a Cleveland church when he was sixteen years old. These days, he travels the globe with a message that remains the same: that God can use anyone, including someone like him—the unwanted child of a seventeen-year-old call girl—to share the hope that comes from believing in Jesus Christ, who came to this earth to redeem our sins and give us eternal life with Him.
Ron wants to help you overcome your STORMS—Significant Trauma Overwhelming Reasonable Minds—with a message that the only way to overcome a storm is to face it head on. For many, the pain of the past and the fear of the future can keep them stuck in a miserable present. Ron can help you face your fears and live out your dreams. Sometimes your greatest blessings are connected to your greatest challenges. Ron’s life is testimony to that.
In coming months, Ron will be speaking in El Salvador, Jamaica, and Anaheim, California, but his biggest event so far was at a Father's Day Men's Conference held at T.D. Jakes' church in Dallas on Saturday, June 16, 2018. Ron received more than a dozen standing ovations and was asked to speak at the International Pastors & Leadership Conference in April 2019.
Tyndale House Publishers, one of the major Christian book publishers, will be releasing Ron's compelling and incredible autobiography sometime in 2019.
Ron has had exciting discussions with Hollywood producers about making a full-length movie of his incredible life. He has also been cast as an inspirational pastor in "Charlie's Dream," his first acting role.
Ron Archer never should have been born. In the early 1960s, his mother was a seventeen-year-old call girl in Cleveland, Ohio, when she became pregnant—a hazard of the trade. A back-alley abortion failed, and Ron came into this world as a neglected afterthought.
Ron overcame a lot growing up. He was sexually abused by a sadistic babysitter, teased unmercifully by schoolmates as “Renaldo the Retardo” because of his constant stuttering, and physically and verbally abused by his stepfather. At age ten, alone in the house, he put a loaded snub-nose revolver to his head and pulled the trigger. The gun didn’t fire.
A kind schoolteacher took an interest in Ron and helped him overcome his stuttering. She told Ron that he was not a mistake and that he was created for a purpose. "You are a gentle soul, but you are going to be strong," she said. "You have a beautiful voice. You don’t hear it yet, but I believe that God is giving you a gift, a gift to speak.”
As Ron Archer shared his story, there was silence in the room. He shared about his birth being the result of a trick, the lack of security at home, and the abuse that faded into hopelessness causing a desire to end his life at the age of ten.
Ron's captivating presentation brings listeners into the storyline and lets them experience the pain of a crisis pregnancy, the vulnerability of a child experiencing insecurity at home, and the terrible results of abuse during childhood. Ron received a lengthy and emotional standing ovation at the end of his dynamic presentation.
I highly recommend Ron Archer for your next fundraising banquet. His passion is revealed in every word. His desire to reach those in the trenches of despair in life will inspire your audience.
—Cindi Boston, Vice President of Heartbeat International
Ron Archer's delivery and presentation were phenomenal! By far, this was one of the best leadership training courses we've ever had. I sincerely hope we can host Ron Archer in the future.
—Ursula L. Burkhalter, Chief of HR Operations, U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command
Ron Archer not only motivated but also gave useful step-by-step guidance in dealing with difficult people. It was an uplifting and informative forum that our supervisors thoroughly enjoyed.
—Tanya Allbritten, Chief of Training and Career Management, U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command
To say that Ron Archer's message was inspiring, motivational, and stirring would be an understatement. From the moment he started, over 800 were entranced by his powerful message. He was completely personal but totally professional. His voice control, inflection of his words, and response to the temperature of the audience made him a pleasure to listen to. The truth he shared, along with his use of humor and personal testimony, made his message very relatable to all in attendance.
Immediately following the event, we began to receive requests to bring Ron back next year. One businessman in particular was quite confident that if we advertised his return through word-of-mouth alone, we could fill a large portion of the college arena where we hosted the event.
—Beth Willis, CPC of Wabash Valley Director of Development
Our 15th anniversary celebration was a phenomenal success, but we couldn't have done it without your powerful preaching, prolific testimonies, and inspirational discourse on how to be set on fire by God.
