About Ronnie White
Ronnie was converted to Jesus Christ after graduating from Texas Tech University with a B.B.A in Finance. After volunteering in the Bus Ministry at Westbury Church of Christ in Houston, he felt led to give his life to a greater cause than selling. The Westbury congregation helped support him and
his wife, Marsha, as they moved to Oklahoma to prepare to preach by attending Oklahoma Christian, where he received a B.A. in Bible in 1976.
His time at OC was one of the richest times in his life while studying under men of God such as Raymond Kelcy, Bill Jones, Hugo McCord, and Lynn McMillon. As a student, he was awarded the Raymond Kelcy Bible Award as Outstanding Ministerial Student; he still considers it one of the greatest awards he ever received.
Ronnie began working for Village Church of Christ while still a student. Upon graduation, he became the full-time preacher there. After a few years of dramatic growth, Village sold its building to the Britton congregation and built a new building in the Quail Springs area. He was with Quail Springs Church of Christ for 23 1/2 years.
Ronnie and Marsha moved to Midland, Texas, where he served as the pulpit minister at Golf Course Road Church of Christ. They were there 11 years before retiring to the Metroplex to be near their grandchildren.
He currently preaches on a regular basis as an interim minister for congregations who are in the midst of a search for their preaching minister. Ronnie has served in this capacity for several churches in Texas, including Glenwood in Tyler, Saturn Road in Garland, Greenville Oaks in Allen, and Crestview in Waco.
He has been blessed to preach in workshops, gospel meetings, and revivals across the country and in foreign countries. He also has been blessed to work with some of the finest people in the world who made his job easier by their sacrificial service. His advice to any OC student or graduate is to remember we serve an Audience of One - give Him your best every day of your life! The rewards are "out of this world."
