About Ron Merryman

Ron Merryman was born in East Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  As an adolescent Ron was led to the Lord by a faithful teaching pastor, Dr. William Garman.  Under Dr. Garman, Ron became a teenage member of a very well taught congregation.


Upon completion of high school there, he served a four year tool and die maker apprenticeship with the Westinghouse Corporation.  This along with engineering courses at Carnegie Tech University (now Carnegie Mellon University) laid the groundwork for future occupation as a tooling engineer.


During the Korean War, Ron served three years in the Air Force as an R-3350 Curtis Wright, engine specialist and as crew chief of a B-29.


From the Air Force, he became involved in Christian ministry that has lasted more than sixty-five years.  He served the Lord in Bible colleges for eleven years, three of those as Acting President of Western Bible College, Morrison, Colorado.  Leaving Western, he became the Pastor of Holly Hills Bible Church in Denver, Colorado, where he served for fourteen years.  While serving as a pastor, Ron became the visiting Professor of History (1976-1980) at Christian Heritage College, El Cajon, California.


Academically, he holds B.A. and M.A. degrees (Biblical Languages) from Bob Jones University.  After two years in seminary, he completed a Ph.D. residency at the University of Colorado majoring in the Intellectual History of the West, mentored by the famous medievalist, Dr. S. Harrison Thompson (an ordained Presbyterian minister, deceased).


Ron and his wife, Sandra, currently live in Lee's Summit, Missouri, where he writes and serves as the President of Merryman Ministries.
