The Truth... What is it?

Another Special Life in Christ

These testimony lives are not stories of "role models". Jesus is the role model!
These are lives wonderfully touched & changed by Jesus!


Ron Dunn (1936-2001):

On 24 March 2002, Ron was mentioned in our Pastor Steve Cloud's sermon about the problem of pain and suffering. Steve called Ron Dunn the most gifted Bible teacher that Steve had ever studied under and how so many lives had been positively affected by Ron Dunn. Ron & Kaye came home after a trip in 1975; and they immediately discovered a note from their eldest son, Ron's namesake, reading something like this: "Dear Mom & Dad, I love you both with all of my heart. But I don't want to live this life anymore. After you read this, don't go into the bathroom...just call 911."

Ron was born in 1937, saved at the age of 9, began preaching at 15, and pastored his first church at age 17. After college and Master of Divinity and several other pastorates, he became pastor of MacArthur Blvd. Baptist Church in Irving, Texas in 1966. In 1975, he resigned to a full-time devotion to an itinerate ministry of Bible teaching and writing which took him around the world.

Some time after his son's death, Steve heard Ron (as a Jesus follower) say, "I've been all of the way to the bottom, and I can tell you that the bottom is solid and everything that I've taught from this book (holding up his Bible) is true!" His wife, Kaye has the following posted on the web site:


In looking back over the past nine months since Ron's death in 29 June 2001, I have been amazed with the literally hundreds of notes, emails, phone calls, cards and letters I have received from people telling me of the impact he made on their lives in some way.

This was the man I loved so much whose heart's desire was to finish well for God. Yes, he had a tremendous gift of preaching, but it was not eloquent preaching that reached people's was seeing a fellow-struggler facing the challenges of life and being honest in his search for answers along the journey. People could identify with his openness about the difficult times.

Ron battled some debilitating years of depression following the death of our teenage son in 1975, and I must admit that I thought it would end his ministry because it was such a struggle to preach. He grappled with his thoughts, his words got twisted and some of his messages seemed to be such "downers" to me. He also walked through the minefield of having three Bipolar (manic depressive) children which took a real toll at times. But we found out over time that these very messages and times of great depression were used of God to encourage others.

Amazing!! If he could go on, then they could go on. No matter what direction his message would take, it would ultimately point them to God as the only answer, no matter what the question.

I marvel at what God can do with one single life. I know that God has a plan for my life without Ron although it still seems unfathomable to me at this point . I thank God for his ministry to my life.
