After serving in two local churches for nearly 30 years, Dr. Ron Kastens came to Milligan in August 2018 to lead Milligan’s new Ministry Leadership Program.
After graduating from Milligan in 1989 with a degree in Bible, Kastens went on to earn a master of divinity and doctor of ministry in pastoral theology from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Massachusetts.
Following 12 years as an associate pastor at Northeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky, Kastens became lead pastor of Crossway Christian Church in Nashua, New Hampshire, in 2001. While there, he oversaw the congregation’s growth from 300 to 850, two building programs and two additional campus locations.
Ron currently serves on the board of Christian Missionary Fellowship and is a member of the Evangelical Homiletics Society. He and his wife, Stacey (’88), recently celebrated thirty years of marriage; they have two sons and a daughter.
