DR. RON COMFORT
Ron Comfort was born in a Roman Catholic home in Elmira, New York. From the ages of seven to fifteen he sang on radio, television, stage, and in small nightclubs. At the age of fifteen, in a city-wide crusade in Asheville, North Carolina, he was saved and immediately felt God’s call to preach.
After working to pay his own way through seven years at Bob Jones Academy and University, Ron graduated and immediately entered full-time evangelism. He has continued in this ministry since 1961, having preached in forty-nine states and many foreign countries. The total number of crusades is well over 1,600.
Dr. Comfort is the founder and chancellor of Ambassador Baptist College, Lattimore, North Carolina. Dr. Comfort’s ministry has been characterized through the years by the abundant use of Scripture. Every crusade is geared toward the family, and a strong emphasis is placed on godliness in the home.
