Ron Reilly
Founder - Ambassadors for Christ Ministries

Ron Reilly was reared in an Irish-Catholic home, attending parochial schools during his formative years. An all-star football standout, he received a full scholarship to Eastern Montana College of Education in Billings, Montana, where he played on the varsity team. Ron’s first Gospel witness came from a teenage girl who later led him to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ on June 28, 1962. Upon answering God’s call to preach at a Sword of the Lord Conference, Bro. Reilly attended BJU and eventually became a very successful youth pastor. He founded the Ambassadors for Christ Youth Ministry and established and directed several Bible clubs in public high schools and housing areas. Over 100,000 recorded professions of faith have been made on the beaches of Daytona during the annual soul-winning trips with young people. 21 men of that number are Gospel preachers today. In addition to leading AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST NATIONAL MINISTRIES and authoring books and articles, Bro. Reilly also conducts youth conferences, youth leadership courses, and couples’ clinics. He is married to the former Nancy Erickson, and has two grown sons, Ronald, Jr. and Jon Michael, and a granddaughter, Julia Blythe Reilly.

Kerby Richmon
Associate Pastor - Lavon Drive Baptist Church

Kerby and his family moved to First Baptist Church of Milford in 1999 so that Kerby could be our children’s pastor. In 2005, he was asked to be the director of Master Ministries and served in that role until June 2015 when he accepted the office of associate pastor at Lavon Drive Baptist Church in Garland, TX. Kerby and Virginia have been blessed with two children, a son-in-law, and one grandson.

Chad Robinson
Director - BPS/Seedline

In the summer of 2013 Chad Robinson and his family moved to Milford, Ohio to serve in the Seedline ministry of Bearing Precious Seed. After working 19 years with the same company, he stepped down from his position to open up more time to serve in his local church and begin his studies through Bible college. This obedience led to the desire and calling to serve full-time with BPS. Chad accepted Christ as his Savior at the age of 17 in a morning church service. Heidi was saved at the age of 8 with her mom after vacation Bible school. They have been married 22 years and have three daughters: Becca, Beth, and Brooke. The family travels to churches who desire to partner in the publishing of God's Word through Seedline Projects where they assemble Scriptures that will be sent to missionaries.

Heidi Robinson

Heidi serves with her husband, Chad Robinson, the director of BPS/Seedline, a ministry of the First Baptist Church of Milford. As missionaries for the past five years, they have traveled to churches across the country assembling Scriptures. As acting secretary of firstBible International, Heidi has researched, developed, and taught students about unreached people groups. Her degree in journalism has greatly assisted the firstBible team in launching the new curriculum, Opening the 10/40 Window. This curriculum is soon to be published into a format which churches and schools could use in a classroom setting. Before moving to Milford, she homeschooled her three daughters, worked as a parent educator for the state of Pennsylvania, and actively served in their local church.

Melissa Roe

Melissa has served alongside her husband, Jim Roe, as a missionary sent out by the First Baptist Church in Milford, Ohio. Since 1998, the Roes have worked in a Restricted Access Nation, training nationals to do the Great Commission. Missions education has become an ever-growing priority in her life and she seeks to pass that on to others. Encouraging Christians to love and embrace a multi-lingual and multi-ethnic world is her passion. Jim and Melissa have two daughters, Jerusha and Kimi. In addition to missions work, Melissa writes, speaks, and teaches about missions.
