Ron Lewis' ministry and passion for the local church and the lost extends to a global level. He has helped over 200 full-time ministers get trained and launched into the mission field. He has been involved in many church plants in various nations including the United States, China, South Korea, North Korea, Phillippines, Ukraine, Russia, Poland, Hungary, Guam, Taiwan, Dominican Republic and Scotland.
In 1995, Ron walked through an open door into the nation of China, resulting in the formation of Strategic China Initiative- SCI, a ministry that develops and supports training centers equipping Chinese pastors with theological foundations, leadership development, and practical ministry skills.
Through this work, Ron developed a friendship and working partnership with EQUIP, a global leadership development organization founded by renowned author and speaker John Maxwell. In addition, SCI has facilitated leadership training for ENLI-China which to date has graduated 18,000 church leaders into China's amazing harvest field.
Ron had a close, personal relationship with the late Reverend Harald Bredesen whom he considered a loyal friend and a personal mentor. Bredesen's life-long ministry to world leaders, well chronicled in modern church history, has been a great inspiration to Lewis' global calling.
