Bible Teacher this week:
Dr. Ron Cline
A man gifted in communicating the gospel of Jesus Christ, Dr. Ronald A. Cline challenges and edifies the body of Christ. His background as a pastor, educator, counselor, missionary and author gives him credibility and rapport with the many groups and individuals he and his wife, Barbara, minister to around the world each year.
Ron is a graduate of Azusa Pacific University (APU) in California. He attended Fuller and Talbot seminaries and studied counseling and guidance at Pasadena Graduate School, all in California. In 1982 he received his doctoral degree from Azusa. He is an ordained minister and a licensed marriage, family and child counselor.
From 1981 to 2001 he served as the president of HCJB Global which has ministries in North America and five regions: Latin America, Euro-Asia, North Africa/Middle East, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Asia Pacific. In 1985 he spearheaded the “World by 2000” (later renamed “World by Radio”) challenge, working with partner broadcasters to make Christian broadcasts available to everyone in a language they can understand. In 1996 Ron began hosting the daily radio program, “Beyond the Call,” which is aired by local radio stations in nearly 1,100 communities in America and in several languages internationally. From 2001 to 2007 Ron served as chairman of the board of trustees. In 2002 he helped establish the mission’s Asia Pacific Region which he directed for two years. He continues to serve as dean of the region’s annual Radio School of Mission in Singapore.
Today Ron serves as “Global Ambassador” for HCJB Global. Ron and Barb continue to travel extensively in ministry with HCJB Global, Extreme Response and Leader Mundial—all ministries with which they are involved.
Mission Focus this week:
HCJB Global is passionate about sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with all people around the world who have never experienced His love. We accomplish this through HCJB Global Voice—a network of media partners around the globe; and HCJB Global Hands—a network of healthcare and community development ministries. By serving alongside local partners who are trying to establish media or healthcare ministries in their communities, we unite to become the VOICE and HANDS of Jesus.
By integrating media and healthcare ministries, we are able to declare the good news of Christ while demonstrating God's love in a practical way. This integration of media and healthcare makes HCJB Global significantly unique compared to other missionary organizations.
As a non-denominational, non-profit, evangelical missionary organization, we assist our partners with staff, training, funding and technology. Our educational and training programs have become a resource for developing knowledgeable local believers who are able to serve their communities as leaders and sustain established local ministries indefinitely.
