Ron Korfmacher is currently the Director of Church Relations. He is originally from Amherst, Ohio, but moved to Upland to attend Taylor University. While a student at Taylor, Ron met his wife, Julie, and they were married in 1983. After graduation, Ron and Julie moved to Boulder, Colorado. They now live locally and have three children and three grandchildren. The opportunity to interact with people of all ages drew Ron to work at Taylor. Ron has transitioned from only mentoring football players to also serving with Pastors. One example is his work with Pastor’s Legacy Ministries, a group of multi-denominational, multi-ethnic pastors focused on biblical discipleship.
Currently, God has been teaching Ron perseverance and patience — a lesson that has come up consistently throughout his life. One of Ron’s favorite verses is 1 Corinthians 8:6: “yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.” This has been a reminder for Ron in recent seasons of his life.
