Ron Hutchcraft Ministries (RHM) is all about "spiritual rescue."
The mission statement of Jesus is "to seek and to save the lost" (Luke 19:10). RHM seeks to join Jesus in this mission, by sharing the unchanging Gospel message of Jesus to a world of lost people.
Upon graduating from Moody Bible Institute, Ron and Karen Hutchcraft began their married life with a clear vision for reaching teenagers with the Good News of Jesus. As an intrinsic part of the Youth for Christ movement, Ron Hutchcraft was both a pioneer and leader in cross-cultural ministry.
By 1991, Ron Hutchcraft was in high demand as a speaker, radio host and author. "Ron Hutchcraft Ministries" (RHM) was established to accelerate the national and international influence of its founder.
Today, RHM remains all about "Communicating Christ to the Lost in their Language" – the RHM team is passionate about sharing the Good News of Jesus to today's generation. They seek to reach lost people where they are, and in ways they will understand.
The RHM team of creative writers and producers make art that will change lives. Through short films, printed material, websites and social media, RHM addresses felt needs that will lead people to the cross of Jesus Christ.
Broadcasting the Gospel through radio is a strategic tool for spiritual rescue. Today, the flagship program, "A Word With You," presents the Gospel worldwide in the world's top six most-spoken languages.
Finally, On Eagles' Wings® is the Native American outreach of RHM. On Eagles' Wings® is a leading youth ministry to the Indigenous young people of the United States and Canada. For almost 30 years, On Eagles' Wings® has trained and equipped Native American young people to reach their people for Jesus. Through the annual Warrior Leadership Summit discipleship conference, and the Summer of Hope reservation tour, thousands of Native lives have been impacted for Christ.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and has been a member in good standing of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) since 1994. The two ECFA audits of RHM met and exceeded their standards. Read more financial information here.
Consistent with the RHM Vision, the Gospel is presented personally, on the radio, and through the Internet in a way that helps lost people connect the need they have with the relationship they are missing – knowing Jesus.
