Dr. Ronald W. Harden, saved as a teenager at the Billy Graham Crusade in Oakland in 1973, serves as President and Chief Executive Officer of EPIC Bible College founded in 1974 (epic.edu ). He joined the college in December of 1982 as an instructor. He has been described as a combination of comedian Robin Williams and Pastor Jack Hayford. His anointed, practical, lively biblical teaching brings the lives of people in the scripture to directly encounter us today. Ron’s hobbies include a real love for golf and reading. He truly enjoys being with people as his favorite part of ministry.
Married to his best friend (a graduate of EPIC), Rev. Connie Harden, since 1980, they have been blessed with two marvelous children: Rev. Daniel and his wife Kimberly (with the first grandbaby Alexis, and third grandbaby Logan), and Rev. Veronica (with second grandbaby Charlotte), happily married to Rev. Loren Zamora.
Coming from a very difficult family background in his early life -- the life message of Dr. Ron is found in Nehemiah 8:10, "The joy of the Lord is my strength."
