Today, we feel the loss of a good friend and a great man, Ron Towery. He faced death the way he lived his life—with matter-of-fact practicality and full of faith, never wavering in his belief and confidence in the Lord. We will miss Ron intensely, but we rejoice that his pain is gone and that he is in the presence of his Savior.
Being the executive director of UBA provided me with a platform to do ministry on so many levels—working with the churches of UBA, working with associations, state and national conventions in the US and abroad, working with our two primary mission agencies (NAMB and IMB)—opportunities I might never have had as a pastor.
