Howell Community Church is an elder-led church.


     Ronnie became a believer in Jesus Christ at the age of 18 in Atlanta, Ga. After growing up with no church background and no experience with anything spiritual, a mild mannered postman introduced Ronnie to Jesus Christ, who turned Ronnie's life of fear and defeat into a life of hope & victory.

Forty years later, here at Howell Community Church (HCC), Ronnie is a teaching elder, small group leader, and is always excited about equipping new leaders. He is part of the Sunday teaching team and has a passion for family fellowship activities and helping to equip the believers at HCC to make new comers feel welcome and at home. His personal vision is to see God's people sharing their love, their lives, and the gospel, with those who have not yet found a relationship with Christ.

Ronnie is bi-vocational and currently has his own practice as a New Jersey Licensed Land Surveyor.

Ronnie enjoys music, fishing, camping, motorcycling, restoring old stuff, and all things mechanical. Like most little boys, he likes to play with fire (welding) and to break things so he can try to fix them.
