Ralph has been happily married to Melinda since 1998. They have four outstanding children; Riley, Amanda, Jonah, and Abby.
Ralph began his work in vocational ministry with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Golf Ministry in 1998 where he served as the Director of Tour Outreach and acted as the Tour chaplain. Prior to 1998 he spent 9 years playing professional golf which enabled him to travel and compete in 21 different countries and 46 states in America.
From 2004-2010 Ralph launched and pastored the Southwest Campus of Discovery Church in Southwest Orlando.
In 2010 he and his family embarked on a fantastic adventure to Beijing China where they lived for 4 years. It was a significant season of life where the vastness and power of God became more evident to them. Ralph was an elder at Capital Community Church as well as the interim lead pastor while they were in Beijing.
In 2014 Ralph returned to Orlando to pastor the Central Campus of Discovery Church. After three years of thriving in that role he accepted the invitation to join the team at Lifebridge Church as Senior Pastor.
Ralph’s great ministry passions are teaching the Bible and seeing others envisioned and equipped to be all that God has designed them to be.
