Rolla Church of the Nazarene
Senior Pastor Ron Sluder
Pastor Ron and his wife Pam have 7 children of their own, and 14 beautiful grand children. Pastor Ron & Pam traveled doing ministry to children for 10 years. They did revivals, training, camps, and special services. They have a real passion to see children come into a life changing relationship with Jesus.
After traveling for a number of years Pastor Ron began the formal training, and license procedures within his home district, Joplin. He served on staff part time at the Garnett Kansas Church of the Nazarene for two years during that time he became the District's children director, then became Associate Pastor to Families with Children at the Chanute Kansas First Church of the Nazarene where he served for several years.
Pastor Ron graduated from the MPP program through Nazarene Bible College in June 2013, and was called to the Rolla Church of the Nazarene that December. He was ordained an Elder in the Church of the Nazarene at the Missouri District's Assembly in June 2014.
Pastor Ron is thrilled to be here in Rolla, and is excited about what God is doing within the church. God has opened many doors, the connection with the Food Bank in Columbia, many wonderful local folks from various congregations who love the Lord, God arranged the availability to acquire another Church property in a neighboring Community and the start of several amazing programs like Celebrate Recovery. We know that God has a great plan for Rolla, through our church body and together with other believers here, If you don't have a church home I will personally invite you to come visit our family, and be a part of what God is doing!
