Ron Ayers, Elder
Chairman of the Congregation
South Fork has been Ron's life long church home as it was for his parents and grandparents. He credits dedicated Sunday School teachers, Marion Henderson's preaching and a supportive South Fork family for his love for God's word and heart for service. Ron served as a missionary in Liberia, West Africa; then as a Family Christian Stores bookstore manager in Springfield, Illinois. Ron and Shirley met as students at Lincoln Christian University and married in 1976. They are blessed with three daughters and eight grandchildren. Thanks in part to living in Liberia, Ron loves to garden and to read on a rainy day sitting by the window with a cup of coffee.
