"Crank it up for 90 seconds with A Preacher in the Patch...
Oil Patch, that is!"
- Ron Evitt, in his weekly radio program.
Airing since September of 1997, the broadcast can be heard throughout western North Dakota, eastern Montana, Wyoming, and California!
He became known as
A Preacher in the Patch
Ron Evitt trusted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior in an Evangelical Gospel meeting in 1971, and has not been the same since. Born and raised in a God fearing, happy home in Williston, North Dakota, Ron's Dad was involved with the Gideons International which is an intra-denominational organization that spreads the Word of God to the whole world. It was through speaking with this organization that Ron learned to love working with many different kinds of churches in Evangelical efforts.
In 1988, Ron's pastor encouraged him to take over the Jail Ministry in Williston. Ron has now enjoyed preaching the Gospel in the Williams County Jail, every Sunday morning that he's in town, for 25 years. He has been used by God to touch and save many lives for the Lord through this ministry. Also, Ron and his family began singing together as a family band in the mid-nineties.
