“Communicating Christ to the lost in their language” is the heart of Ron Hutchcraft’s life passion, and that of the ministry as well. Through broadcasting (and short films, tracts, websites and social media), “Ron Hutchcraft Ministries” (RHM) addresses felt needs that will lead people to the cross of Jesus Christ.
In 1965, upon graduating from Moody Bible Institute, Ron and Karen Hutchcraft began their married life with a clear vision for reaching teenagers with the Good News of Jesus. As an intrinsic part of the Youth for Christ movement, Ron was both a pioneer and leader in cross-cultural youth ministry.
Print is also a component of ministry impact including a 13-week Bible study curriculum entitled “A Life that Matters” and an extensive library of articles, books and e-books, audio and video.
Ron’s most recent publication, Hope When Your Heart if Breaking: Finding God’s Presence in Your Pain, is a highly personal one, written after the sudden homegoing of his wife, Karen. The book is a beautiful reminder in these pandemic days of God’s provision of hope no matter the grief or loss experienced. Other volumes he’s authored include A Life That Matters and Peaceful Living in a Stressful World.
Ron resides in Harrison, Arkansas, where the ministry is headquartered. The Hutchcraft family includes three children (all involved in ministry) and nine grandchildren.
