Ralph has been happily married to Melinda since 1998. Their four children are Riley, Amanda, Jonah and Abby.
Ralph began work with 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 that, he spent nine years playing professional golf, which enabled him to travel and compete in 21 different countries and 46 states in America.
From 2004 to 2010 Ralph launched and pastored the Southwest Campus of Discovery Church in southwest Orlando. In 2010, he felt God calling him and his family to an incredible adventure living and working in Beijing, China where they lived for four years. It was a significant experience that allowed them to see the power of God in incredible ways. Ralph was an elder at Capital Community Church as well as interim lead pastor during this time.
The Howe family returned to Orlando in 2014 where Ralph pastored the central campus of Discovery Church. After a fruitful three years there, 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.
