After 25 years battling a paralyzing heroin and cocaine addiction, state prison time, and 15 years of Organized Crime, Ronn experienced a powerful conversion at the Hand of God in 1987 while incarcerated .
As his life was slowly being restored, he connected with Brooklyn Teen Challenge, a faith-Based Drug Rehabilitation Center, where he then began as a volunteer in 1990. Six years later in 1996 he became intake coordinator and soon afterwards, director of the Brooklyn Men's program.
Today, after completing 10 years as a staff minister at Faith Fellowship Ministries World Outreach Center in Sayreville, New Jersey, Ronn continues to counsel those caught up in addictions and substance abuse. Ronn is currently based in the Philippines and continues to travel around the world mostly to Africa as a Conference Speaker, Teacher, and Counselor.
