Ron Edmondson is the pastor at Immanuel Baptist Church in Lexington, KY. He has more than 35 years of leadership experience, and has been in full-time ministry for over 15 years. He is passionate about planting churches, but also helping established churches thrive. He loves assisting pastors and those in ministry think through leadership, strategy, and life. Ron’s specialty is organizational leadership, so as he has time, he consults with church and ministry leaders. Over 20 years ago, he founded a non-profit ministry called Mustard Seed Ministry, which provides devotional resources, conducts family, marriage and parenting, and church leadership seminars. Ron is married to Cheryl, and they have two adult sons. He counts his greatest times as being with his wife and kids.
