When I was hired for my first Pastor's position, Ralph met with me to encourage and offer support through my first year. In the years following, he would often offer a word of caring guidance. He loved the church and was dedicated to make it an institution that brought Grace and Light to our communities and neighborhoods. He was bold, never shying away from God's calling for the church, even when others disagreed or criticized. He showed me what it meant for a pastor to focus on pleasing God and not men. He has influenced me. I am grateful for him. God, thank you for this gift.
