Ronald T. Klassen

Adjunct Professor for Doctor of Ministry Studies

BA, John Brown University, 1978; ThM, DTS, 1982; DMin, Bethel Theological Seminary, 2001.

Dr. Klassen became Director of RHMA in 1990, after serving town and country pastorates in Nebraska and Oklahoma. He has enjoyed serving as a guest professor or lecturer at a number of Bible colleges, universities, and seminaries, and is an adjunct professor at Dallas Theological Seminary. He has preached in churches all across the country, spoken at numerous pastors’ conferences, and is a frequent seminar leader.  He has written dozens of articles, including several for Leadership Journal. He has coauthored two books: No Little Places; The Untapped Potential of the Small-Town Church and Leading Through Change; Shepherding the Town and Country Church in a New Era.  

He has been interviewed several times on the Moody Broadcasting Network, for Focus on the Family’s “Pastor to Pastor” series, and on a number of other radio stations across the country. An interesting fact about Ron is that he’s one of less than a dozen people in the world with a D.Min. in Rural Church Work!

Dr. Klassen has been married to Roxy since 1977. They have been blessed with three children and a daughter-in-law.
