Dr. Ramesh Richard
God has permitted Dr. Ramesh Richard, the founder and president of RREACH and a professor at Dallas Theological Seminary, to be a global spokesman for the Lord Jesus Christ.
RREACH (that’s with two Rs) is an acronym for Ramesh Richard Evangelism and Church Health. A global proclamation ministry, RREACH’s vision is to change the way One Billion Individuals think and hear about the Lord Jesus Christ through evangelizing opinion leaders and strengthening pastoral leaders, primarily of Asia, Africa and Latin America.
From his platform at RREACH, Dr. Richard travels the world clarifying the message of the Bible through lectures and preaching. His audiences are wide-ranging from non-Christian intellectuals in university settings to poor pastors in rural areas, from gatherings of a few to crowds of a hundred thousand. The Lord has given him the opportunity to train thousands of church leaders in more than 100 countries to preach, live and think biblically. He founded TOPIC (Trainers of Pastors International Coalition) to champion non-formal pastoral training worldwide. In 2016, he convened the first Global Proclamation Congress for Pastoral Trainers, in Bangkok, Thailand.
He also has the privilege of exposing society’s “opinion leaders” to the good news of Jesus Christ. Dr. Richard addressed presidents/heads of state, secretaries of state, and ambassadors of state of 53 African nations in Khartoum, Sudan, at the fourth annual African Union Heads of State Prayer Breakfast.
He also addressed an audience of 200 ambassadors and world leaders as the keynote speaker for the 23rd Annual International Prayer Breakfast at the United Nations in New York City.
A theologian-evangelist, philosopher-expositor and educator-author, Dr. Richard holds a ThD (in Systematic Theology) from Dallas Theological Seminary and PhD (in Philosophy) from the University of Delhi. He serves as Professor of Global Theological Engagement and Pastoral Ministries at Dallas Theological Seminary.
He and his wife, Bonnie, live in Dallas, Texas, and have three children and three grandchildren.
