How Ralph Serves with Global Recordings Network

Ralph oversees the Finances of GRN USA, including the handling of receipts and reports for staff and board meetings. He ensures we remain accountable to our faithful donors and the government.  He handles transfer of funds worldwide, liaises with auditors and outsiders such as insurance agents and realtors, and serves on the Administrative Team.

On Faith & Family

Ralph came to the Lord at an early age.  His father was an elder in their home church and he remembers missionary families coming for dinner while he was growing up.  Ralph was fortunate to get to hear Joy Ridderhof, founder of Global Recordings Network, speak while he was attending High School in South Carolina.  Ralph has always had a heart for the Lord but distinctly remembers recommitting his heart to Christ at a college youth retreat.  He became a missionary shortly after graduating from college and began working at Gospel Recordings in 1981.

Ralph and his wife Ruth are career missionary members of Global Recordings Network.  They have two grown sons, one of whom has just committed to a two-year term with GRN here and overseas.

Background & Qualifications

Ralph has a Bachelors Degree in Financial Management from Clemson University. He attended Bible College at the Evangelical Institute in Greenville, South Carolina.
