Summary

Ramesh Richard Evangelism and Church Health (RREACH) seeks to change the way One Billion Individuals think and hear about the Lord Jesus Christ through three strategic ministry burdens, proclamation, strengthening pastoral leaders and evangelizing opinion leaders. As an "open market" proclaimer, Dr. Ramesh Richard seeks to share the good news to those willing to consider the facts and claims of our Lord Jesus Christ. In addition, RREACH seeks to strengthen pastoral leaders from developing economies so they, in turn, can be better equipped to reach their countries with the hope of salvation.

We accelerate our global impact by the wise use and mix of personal proclamation, media outreach, and ministry training to evangelize opinion leaders, strengthen pastoral leaders, and reach large numbers of individuals, especially of Asia, Africa and Latin America.

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.
