Ronald Anthony Archer has served as the North American Coordinator for the International Reconciliation Coalition (IRC) for the past 12 years. The IRC is an International Coalition of like-minded individuals, Churches and Prayer Groups committed to bridging the gap between peoples and healing the deep wounds of our world using biblical means – Confession, Repentance, Reconciliation and Restitution.

 “All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.” 2 Corinthians 5:18

Ron is a veteran of over 42 years of Pastoral and Missionary service, beginning his ministry in July 1969 – the day Neill Armstrong walked on the moon. Ron, a decorated Vietnam Vet, has served in a number of pastoral positions in local churches, including Senior Pastor.

From 1978-1991 Ron worked with Youth With A Mission in Holland and Belgium. He is the founder of YWAM Belgium and served as National Director for 7 years, after which he became YWAM’s Area Director for BENELUX (Belgium, The Netherlands & Luxembourg). Ron has traveled in over 60 countries speaking in local churches, missions conferences, teaching in YWAM Discipleship Training Schools, consulting on missions, church growth and city-reaching.

While Senior Pastor of Church of the Living Christ in Simi Valley in the late 1990’s,  Ron was one of the founders of “Pray Simi Valley” and worked with “Pray Ventura County,” two efforts focused on reaching their Cities and County for God. This included being part of a weekly Pastor’s prayer group. The unified Pastors & Churches have organized quarterly Concerts of Prayer, several Marches for Jesus, annual city-wide Weeks of Prayer, a Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast and launched several hundred Lighthouses of Prayer.

As North American Coordinator for the IRC Ron’s passion and purpose is to network the Body of Christ, encourage and support the North American network of the IRC, maintain the vision & values of reconciliation, facilitate networking, communication and research as well as  share resources which will assist the Church in completing the Great Commandment (John 13:34, 35) and the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20).

Ron’s work in Reconciliation has taken him to Germany, Holland, Belgium, England, Ireland, N. Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Finland, Sweden, Senegal, Uganda, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.

Ron has two adult children, Russell (42) lives in Portland, OR and works for an Insurance Company to support his first love, Music.  Rachelle (39) who lives in San Diego, is mom to 4 year old Kai – the Light of our Lives – and is an Expressive Arts Therapist at Monarch School, a school for homeless and at-risk children.

  1. I conceive this website contains some real fantastic info for everyone. “There is nothing so disagreeable, that a patient mind cannot find some solace for it.” by Lucius Annaeus Seneca.

  2. Oh dear Brother, Mighty Man of God who loves the Lord first, and then others! You definitely ARE a son of God, and a man after His own heart ~ “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” May the Lord richly bless you as you continue to reflect His Love, as you minister healing, deliverance, and restoration to the lost and hurting so all may experience the Good Plans He has for each one…..

  8. I just couldn’t go away your website prior to suggesting that I really enjoyed the standard info a person supply on your visitors? Is gonna be again frequently to check out new posts

  9. fantastic post, very informative. I’m wondering
    why the opposite specialists of this sector don’t
    understand this. You should proceed your writing. I am sure, you have
    a huge readers’ base already!

  10. Please Ron could you arrange to come with a team for reconciliation to Juba South Sudan and we will be able to mobilize south Sudan pastors and leaders from different churches.
    South Sudan need emergency reconciliation plz
    thank you

    Robert Nathana from Juba South Sudan

    • Robert, I would be very interested in bringing a team to Juba. Our Reconciliation Team spent three weeks in Gulu & Kampala Uganda in 2008. Have we met while our team was there? While there we met Mama Shekinah and two of our team returned to Uganda & Sudan to video a documentary of her story. Not sure if you know her? Can you please email me more details with your contact information to ron.archer@gmail.com
      Thank you and may Father God watch over, bless & protect you. (I just noticed your email address, so we can take it up there) Shalom, Ron Archer

  11. Marlee Dubnow

    Just wondering how individuals can become involved to mobilize our churches to embracing reconciliation.

    • Marlee, Thank you for your visit & question. Not sure where you live but we have an Online Reconciliation School at http://www.reconcile.org. You might want to check that out – possibly a good place to begin. Another way is to begin to gather Christians in your community to discuss reconciliation issues, pray for one another, pray for the church and begin a dialogue that will take you in that direction. One initial reconciliation resource is John Dawson’s book, Healing America’s Wounds. You can contact me by email: ron.archer@gmail.com or by phone: 619.507.1644. I live in San Diego (La Mesa) CA. Have a blessed weekend! Ron

  12. Sometime back in the year 2014,a group of people from Nairobi approached us with a proposal for partnership with our non-governmental organization(NGO) called EDUCATION SUPPLEMENTS INTERNATIONAL to help the disadvantaged in our society like supply of food,clothing,medical treatment etc.Little did i and my wife Edith know that they were criminals.Before we knew it,they had defrauded people here in Nakuru town where we live and Nairobi using our organization’s name of millions of Kenya Shillings.Later,we were arrested and charged in a court of law for crimes that we had not initiated.In fact we spent some time in prison and were later released on bail(bond)..The case is on-going and we are to appear in court again on Wednesday next week (15/11/2017) for a hearing of the case.
    In your prophetic word to me,you mentioned about a difficult period that we have gone through.This is what God was revealing to you.Please pray for us that the court cases will be terminated and come to an end so that we can have peace,me and my family.
    It has been a very trying time for us in the family.The court cases left us almost financially crippled.Were it not for prayers from friends and ourselves,we do not tell the direction our lives would have taken.The complainants in these cases are well aware that we were innocent from the beginning but would not want to withdraw the cases in the hope that we would give them some money for the loses they suffered from the fraudsters from Nairobi.


    God bless you!

    Nicholas & Edith

    • Nicholas, So sorry to hear of the challenges you’ve faced with your NGO in Kenya. Have we met before? You mention “my prophetic word” which is somewhat confusing. Thank you for your comments. Not sure how I can be of further assistance, other than to pray as the Lord brings you to mind. Grace, Peace & Blessings in Christ Jesus! RAA

  13. Do you have a church in Simi Valley.

  14. Ron Archer I am so grateful for you’re teaching as youth pastor in Bakersfield while growing up as a teenager.i loved u then as I do today.so inspiring to see you’re life’s achievements.i am truly happy you’re life has been blessed.if u have the time to reach out and communicate further I will leave my email.sincerely..(Linda motley)…rae cantrell

    • Rae/Linda, thanks for your encouraging comment. That’s a very long time ago & I guess we can all use a little encouragement from those we met & touched during our journey. I’ll email you so you can help ‘jog’ my failing memory as I approach my 79th year. Grace, Peace & Blessings in Christ Jesus! Ron
