Ron Harris – the program developer

Ron Harris is a Canadian citizen, an ordained minister since 1986, and a member of the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (NANC).

Ron regards the last seventeen years of his ordained ministry in Kiev, Ukraine, as the culmination of God’s gracious education and preparation for the creation of a systematic, practical theological program and curriculum, which are used by ICI ‘Coram Deo.’

In 1986, he earned a PhD in Biblical Counseling at Westminster Theological Seminary, became a member of the largest US Biblical Counseling organization, and was ordained. In 2002, Ron with his wife Linda moved to Kiev to become a pioneer of the first official Biblical Counseling program in the former Soviet Union.

For ten years before his move to Kiev, Ron was involved in pastoral and counseling ministries in Ontario, Canada, and Florida, USA. He then oversaw Biblical counseling in his native region west of Toronto, Canada. After living in Kiev for seven years, Ron and Linda returned to Canada and from there continued to support and train ICI ‘Coram Deo’ leaders in other countries, teaching them a wise, practical application of Scripture to a wide spectrum of human problems. While working with ICI founders, Ron completed the formation of this growing ministry by adding Comfort training to the three-year program of 12 modules and organizing a valuable system of team counseling in ‘real time’ known as Cabinet.

Living in Canada today Ron continues to support the leaders in ministry upon request and enjoys the spiritual fruit of his three children and ten grandchildren. Ron’s hobby is to cook – Slavic dishes, of course!
