This week, our Friday Night Fellowship guest will join us LIVE from Tokyo, Japan

Mr. Ron Rucker/Gospel Artist and Producer studied music theory, arranging, and performance at the State University of New York at Albany, and Los Angeles City College.  His practical education and career as a professional musician have spanned over 50 years. Mr. Rucker served as Music Director for Chofu Minami Christ Church in Tokyo from 1989 until 1994. Ron also served as musician for the Gospel Service at Yokota Air Force Base East Chapel.

Rucker Gospel Ministries was founded in 1996, and facilitated gospel music workshops in cities throughout Japan, from Hokkaido to Kyushu. Throughout Japan Ron formed gospel community choirs, and church choirs. The publishing division of Rucker Gospel Ministries produced several gospel piano method texts and gospel choir CD’s.

Since 1995, Ron continues to serve as Chapter Representative for the Japan Chapter of the Gospel Music Workshop of America.  He has served as Contemporary Music Director at Tokyo Union Church, as well as pianist for the Good Shepherd Church of God in Christ (Hamura City, Tokyo Prefecture).  Ron lives in Tokyo with his wife Yoko of 42 years.  He is surrounded by his children and grandchildren, cooking, and by his admittance, eating way too much every day.

We are looking forward to hearing from Ron, as he recalls the journey of a blessed and impressive career building and supporting communities through gospel music in Japan.

As always, we encourage you to invite family, friends, and neighbors.
