Rev. Dr. Ronald C. Nunuk
As an immigrant himself, the Rev. Dr. Ronald Charles Nunuk is well-suited to his role as mission coordinator for Burmese Refugees. He works to strengthen church ministries, empower leadership and build relationships among refugees from Burma, now known as Myanmar, with the larger American Baptist family.
“There are too many challenges and unknowns for refugee and immigrant churches,” he says. “Sometimes they don’t know how to overcome obstacles because they are in a new land.”
He is also well-prepared, having helped to establish 10 refugee and immigrant churches across the United States since 2008.
Nunuk says he has always wanted to be involved in God’s kingdom whenever and wherever possible. Committed to helping others, he feels called to his current position.
“I am really excited to embrace this mission because I am not only serving, but I am learning from others, which God wants,” he says. “When I see people that need love and care, I thank God that he provides me with the energy to serve them.”
