Ralph VanAuken has been married to his wife Wanda for 37 years, and they raised five children. He had a radical encounter with Jesus Christ while sitting in a jail cell and from that point on, has never been the same. Ralph and Wanda were planted in a really healthy local church where they learned that every believer is a full-time minister of the Gospel. Ralph believes in servant leadership, and has served with his wife in children’s ministry, youth ministry, small group ministry, and pastoral care. He has such a heart to see believers walk in who they are in Christ, which, in turn, allows them to properly represent the heart of the Father to the world around them. Ralph finds great joy in watching people grow, develop and come into their calling! Ralph loves working within a team of strong, powerful, healthy people.
