In his more than twenty years of full-time ministry, Ronnie Harrison has served the Lord along side some of the giants of the faith. His spiritual heritage, experience and faith in God has birthed a vision to reach the greater Kentuckiana region with the true gospel of Jesus Christ.
A native of Oklahoma, Ronnie was born into a Choctaw family with generations of Pentecostal preachers in his blood. Raised in a pastor’s home, by age 22 he was full time staff at his father’s church what is now Harvest Church in Norman.
He served under Pastor Tommy Bates, of Community Family Church in Independence, Kentucky. He met and married Stephanie Ireland of Florence, Kentucky in 1994 and together they served Pastor Derwin Ward in Modestso Central Valley, California at his Keys Assembly of God Church in a host of capacities.
In 1997 the Harrisons were commissioned to serve Pastor Rod Parsley in Columbus, Ohio and would do so through 2009. Under his direction, Ronnie and Stephanie would lead worship, serve as youth pastors, direct all local church ministries, teach and direct at then World Harvest Bible College, as well as serve creatively and administratively the needs of Breakthrough Ministries, Pastor Parsley’s worldwide broadcast outreach.
In a step of faith, following the vision God had given them, the Harrisons moved to Louisville, Kentucky and planted The Kingdom Center Church in the fall of 2009. Knowing less than a half dozen people in a city of 1.3 million, Ronnie and Stephanie birthed this church in the living room of their small condo. Now over 5 years later, The Kingdom Center serves 650+ members in weekend services with a second growing campus an hour East in Lexington. The Kingdom Center challenges people to live more than a “church life” but a kingdom life – a life lived to His highest purpose.
Ronnie and Stephanie are the proud parents of 4 children, Collin Macguire, Rylie Jade, Landon Carter, and Isabella Reese.
