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 will be at a Father's Day Men's Conference at T.D. Jakes' church in Dallas on Saturday, June 16, 2018.
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.”
