Foundations: December 31 – January 2


What words defined your family in 2021? Did the events of this past year cause you to draw closer to Christ and to each other? Let this new year be a chance for you to reflect, but also look ahead and turn this next year over to God. What foundations will your family lay in place as you go into this next year?

Speaker: Ron and Jackie Pegram


Jackie and Ron have enjoyed ministering together for over 30 years, including serving as chaplains with Motor Racing Outreach to minister to the NASCAR community, and serving over 2800 orphans in South Africa while Ron was COO for Samaritan’s Feet. Today, Ron manages a non-profit ministering to missionaries and small ministries. Together, they currently direct Kidz Xtreme, a ministry to children in need in North Carolina and Jacksonville, Florida. Jackie teaches children regularly at local schools and their home church. Jackie has a heart to vividly share the Gospel! Ron and Jackie have been married for 30 years. They have 3 children, 8 grandchildren and a great grandchild on the way.
