Ronald C. Nunuk
As an immigrant himself, Pastor Ronald Charles Nunuk is well-suited to his role as national coordinator for Chin Ministries and as a commissioned home missionary who serves immigrants from Burma, now known as Myanmar. He works in partnership with American Baptist Home Mission Societies and Chin Baptist Churches USA to strengthen church ministries, empower leadership and build relationships 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.”
