Loving God, Equipping People, Mentoring Leaders, Reaching Nations
Ralph will be ministering with his team in Almaty, Kazakstan near the end of January and into February, 2018. This is the first of a number of regular trips that Ralph takes each year into this great nation.
Ralph works with several networks of churches, a group of denominational churches, as well as several house church movements.
On almost every trip in 2017 Ralph took a young team member with him from either Canada or the United States.
These young men are apostles-in-training and these trips give them an opportunity to experience apostolic ministry first hand. As well, they learn about another culture and how to move cross-culturally as they see another part of God’s amazing Kingdom.
This trip the team member is from Altona, Manitoba. We would appreciate your prayers for Dylan as he travels with Ralph for the first time. It is also his first visit to Kazakhstan so there will be a time of adjustment as he switches countries and cultures.
Our main work will be done in the city of Almaty (pictured below) as well as several other locations…
Daily reports will be forthcoming during the trip on our ministry Facebook page.

Ralph will be returning to Ohio February 20th to 26th, 2018. He ministers several times a year in Butler, Ohio. River of Life Community Church is an amazing congregation led by Bill Lewis who ministers as an apostle in a number of nations around the world. Bill and his wife Cathy give pastoral oversight to the congregation at River of Life as well as teach and minister prophetically.
Ralph serves as one of two men who give apostolic oversight to the life of the congregation and work with the current eldership of the church. Ralph also mentors a number of young men from the city of Columbus area and meets with them when possible during his visit to this local church.
In the past several years Ralph has been involved in an annual television series called “The Sound of the Trumpet.”
This is a 13 part, locally produced television show aired on a community station here in Regina, Saskatchewan. Each episode always presents the Gospel of the Kingdom and gives people an opportunity to receive Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.
Each of the 13 programs has a different local Christian leader being interviewed and sharing their testimony along with a pre-determined topic that the producers want addressed.
Those in the planning area of this program have recently found increased favour with the cable company and have been offered more air time. As a result, starting in September, we will be taping a second series – which we hope will also be an annual undertaking and aired a number of times each year – with the main theme (and title of the program) being “The Word.”
Ralph will be taping his part in the series early in September, 2017 for airing at a future date. His topic is “The fear of the Lord” which we see as lacking in many who call themselves believers. Again, Ralph has been asked to start his segment of the series by briefly sharing his testimony. All 13 sessions in the new series are based in the Gospel of John, Chapter one.
This new series will be available on most local cable community stations throughout Saskatchewan once completed.
Each month there will be one theme that Ralph will be commenting and sharing on in his daily blogs. Some of the upcoming themes are:
- The Apostolic Revolution
- House Churches
- Dealing With Shame
- Gay Christians
- Apostolic Church Planting
- Heaven, Hell, and Life After Death
- The Kingdom of God
- Christian Unity
- Evangelism in our world today
As well, each blog will end with a question or two to consider and even comment on. All comments will be read and a response given, if appropriate. In other words, we want the blogs to be a little more interactive.
As well, there will be a prayer request at the end of each blog – associated with Ralph’s work in a number of countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
We are excited about these and several other changes that will be introduced as the new fall 2017 season moves into high gear.

At the start of October, 2017 Ralph will be live streaming three times a week on Facebook. These sessions will be 3 to 5 minutes in length and deal with current topics in the news that raise issues that the Church is or should be discussing. These postings will be personal, practical, and, we hope, powerful. And, of course, we hope they will be a catalyst for further discussion and interaction among believers.
Once a week He will be posting a 12 to 15 minute teaching on a current and relevant topic. Again, these will deal with relevant topics that need to be wrested with by believers. We are living in a fast changing world and there is much we are called to interact and comment on. These extended weekly teachings will be opening a door into issues that need to be thought about and understood.
When Ralph is overseas – the short live streaming will be current from wherever he is ministering. The longer teaching sessions will be pre-recorded and published even while he is away.
We are also excited that we will be opening a You Tube channel dedicated the Ralph’s teachings. All the material will be new and current. As well, some of the teachings Ralph does overseas (translated into Russian but with full English content) will also be posted. These teachings were recorded live as he taught them in local churches and at leadership schools.
