About Ronald

I'm the middle school pastor at Wayside Chapel in San Antonio, TX and have been doing student ministry for over a decade. My wife and I have been married for 12 years and we have three wonderful daughters! I love small group ministry, playing ridiculous games, Dr Pepper and Taco Bell. I also love watching students grow in their walk with Jesus!
