Mission statement

A Global Proclamation Ministry, RREACH International implements God's calling on Dr. Ramesh Richard to proclaim the message of the Lord Jesus Christ worldwide, with a strategic burden for strengthening pastoral leaders and evangelizing opinion leaders worldwide.


Statement of faith

We believe that the Bible, consisting of Old and New Testaments only, is verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit, is inerrant in the original manuscripts, and is the infallible and authoritative Word of God. We believe that the one triune God exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is God, was born of a virgin, died vicariously, shed His blood as man's substitutionary sacrifice, rose bodily, and ascended to heaven, where He is presently exalted at the Father's right hand, and that His return is imminent, visible and personal. We believe that salvation consists of the remission of sins, the imputation of Christ's righteousness, and the gift of eternal life received by faith alone, apart from works. Because of Adam's sin, all men have guilt imputed, are totally depraved, and need to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit for salvation. We believe that the church, the body of Christ, consists only of those who are born again, who are baptized by the Holy Spirit into Christ at the time of regeneration, for whom He now makes intercession in heaven and for whom He will come again. We believe that the saved will be raised to everlasting life and blessedness in heaven, and that the unsaved will be raised to everlasting and conscious punishment in hell. We believe that Christ commanded the church to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every person, baptizing and teaching those who believe.

History

A theologian, preacher, philosopher, evangelist, and author, Dr. Ramesh Richard holds a ThD (in systematic theology) from Dallas Theological Seminary and the PhD (in philosophy) from the University of Delhi. Dr. Richard graduated magna cum laude, Dallas Theological Seminary and was awarded the Lewis Sperry Chafer Founder's Award as "Outstanding Student" by DTS faculty in 1979. He was a "First Rank" graduate with the highest scholastic record in his doctoral class. To mention some of Dr. Richard's many ministry experiences, he is a visiting professor at Evangelical Theological Seminary in India (1984- ); adjunct professor at Tyndale Theological Seminary in Holland (1990). He is a former pastor of Delhi Bible Fellowship. At Dallas Theological Seminary Dr. Ramesh Richard is a Professor of Pastoral Ministries, World Missions and Intercultural Studies. He also teaches on occasion as lecturer in the Systematic Theology Department. Dr. Richard is also the founder and president of RREACH International. RREACH is an acronym for Ramesh Richard Evangelism and Church Helps. RREACH's mission statement reads, "A global proclamation ministry, RREACH International implements God's calling on Ramesh Richard to proclaim the message of the Lord Jesus Christ worldwide, with a strategic burden for strengthening their pastoral leaders and evangelizing their opinion leaders of weaker economies."
From his platform at RREACH, Dr. Richard travels throughout the world, speaking on the ultimate issues of life and clarifying the message of the Bible through lectures and preaching. His audiences are wide-rangingfrom non-Christian intellectuals at Harvard to poor pastors in Haiti, from gatherings of a few to a hundred thousand. In recent years he has been speaking to crowds of men in stadiums across the United States on their spiritual responsibilities. The Lord has given him the opportunity of training thousands of church leaders in over 60 countries to preach, lead, and think biblically. He also has the privilege of exposing society's "opinion leaders" to the good news of Jesus Christ.
Dr. Richard and RREACH International recently concluded a major international evangelistic outreach on primetime, secular TV around the world, exposing large numbers of opinion leaders in the weaker economies to the Gospel.


Program accomplishments

Global Proclamation Commission (GProCommission). RREACH's G-ProCommission is a decade-long initiative dedicated to connecting, uniting and strengthening 100,000 fine, young lead pastors in emerging economies - primarily in Asia, Africa and Latin America. The goal is to provide fine, young lead pastors critical ministry training and peer relationships that allow them to minister more effectively with churches and non-believing communities, and to do so in such a way that allows the Gospel a fair and serious hearing. RREACH believes that sound proclamation of God's Word is crucial to fulfilling the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ. Major Media. RREACH uses a variety of major media mediums (television, radio, books and internet) to distribute pre-evangelistic messages of hope to the world. The message is broadcast to large numbers of people from numerous countries who are encouraged to read, watch or listen to the messages and register on our website, with many asking questions about pertinent spiritual matters. RREACH answers all questions seeking to minister to their spiritual needs and lead them to a relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. Pastors Conferences. Each year RREACH conducts pastors conferences in countries with developing economies in order to strengthen local pastors, many of whom serve without any formal training or ongoing development. In 2011 RREACH held conferences in Malawi, India and other locations training local pastors in various subjects such as Bible study methods and sermon preparation. By strengthening local pastors, RREACH seeks to strengthen the entire church so it can be have a greater impact and presence in these countries.
