Watching his father leave a lucrative airline career for the ministry, Ramesh Richard knew as a boy that Christian ministry would become his vocation. While still a teen, Ramesh started publicly presenting news about the Lord Jesus Christ in the crowded open markets of southern India.
After post-graduate studies at Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS) he served as pulpit pastor of Delhi Bible Fellowship in New Delhi, India.
When DTS invited Ramesh to return to teaching in 1987, six Dallas businessmen formed RREACH to undergird his global calling and impact.
RREACH is an acronym for Ramesh Richard Evangelism and Church Health. A global proclamation ministry, its vision is to change the way One Billion Individuals think and hear about the Lord Jesus Christ.
Its mission is to “implement God’s calling and gifting on Ramesh Richard to promote the Lord Jesus Christ worldwide” with a strategic burden for evangelizing opinion leaders and strengthening pastoral leaders, especially of Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
As founder and president of RREACH, Dr. Richard ministers around the world, clarifying the message of the Bible through lectures and materials. His audiences range from pre-Christian opinion leaders in world capitals to poor pastors in remote venues, and from private gatherings of a few to large gatherings of a hundred thousand.
He has spoken to crowds of men in stadiums across the United States on their spiritual responsibilities and trained thousands of church leaders in more than 90 countries how to preach, live, and think biblically.
Since its humble yet visionary beginning, God has extended Ramesh’s itinerant proclamation ministry and expanded the scope of RREACH’s ministry to include large efforts in media outreach and strengthening pastoral leaders worldwide—all to the glory of the Father and by the power of the Holy Spirit.
