Ron Lawler

Pastor of Preaching and Teaching

Office: (360) 679-1585

I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior when I was a teen. A friend had invited me to attend church to help out in a Sunday School attendance drive. At the end of the worship service I asked the Pastor how I could know for sure I would go to Heaven. He had someone show me from the Scriptures how to receive Christ and from that day to this, I have had an assurance of Christ as my Savior and Heaven as my eternal home.
Within a few weeks I sensed a building desire to enter into full time ministry. My church observed me and confirmed the call. Upon graduation from High School, I enrolled in Bible College and I have been in ministry ever since. I was ordained to the ministry by my home church in Texas in 1974. It has been my privilege to be Pastor of Preaching and Teaching at Family Bible since 2005.
Cheryl and I were married in 1973. God has blessed us with two children, Rachel and David, and four grandsons.
Favorite Part of Ministry? - Researching and discussing questions about the Bible.
Favorite Verse? - 1 Corinthians 15:58, "Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm.  Let nothing move you.  Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain."

Growing up in a Christian home prepared me well for embracing God.  As a highschooler I stepped out from under my parents wings and accepted Christ as my personal Lord and Savior.  I went to Central Washington University and prepared to go into full time teaching but after graduating in 1996 I was offered a job as a Jr. High youth director.  I was feeling called to Youth ministry and knew God led me to that position of service in the Church.  I was able to use my teaching degree to substitute and be involved in coaching to help minister to the community.  I moved to Oak Harbor in 2012 to continue my youth ministry call. 
I met my wife Carrie in 2007 and we were married one year later.  Through that marriage I acquired a snuggly long haired dachshund named Frankie - one of her best qualities is sweeping the floor with her tail! 
Favorite part of ministry? - Getting to have real relationships and be able to watch kids grow in their faith and let God impact the world through them.
Favorite verse? - Isaiah 40:31 But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
