Ron Jutze is a passionate follower of Jesus Christ whose enthusiasm for both God and His word is contagious. After a radical transformation and salvation experience in 1981, Ron went on to serve as an associate pastor for 6 years in Buffalo, New York. In 1988 he moved to Olean, New York to lead a church plant where he served as Senior Pastor for 14 years. He experienced God’s mighty hand as the congregation grew from 18 to over 600. It became the largest non-denominational church in a community of only 15,000. His gifted ability to cast vision spearheaded and led the congregation through a successful capital stewardship campaign. This project enabled them to build larger facilities to meet the growing needs of their church family, and was accomplished debt free.
In 2002, Ron released the church to the staff he had mentored and developed for 14 years, and he moved to Atlanta, GA. In 2004 Ron took a sabbatical to reconnect with his children and refocus on the dream inside of him as God was preparing him for the next stage of his journey. His life now reflects a deeper faith in God's grace, being strengthened through the diversity of life's challenges.
Ron’s dedication to excellence and development has allowed him to experience productivity in both the ministry and corporate environments. He spent several years in the corporate arena consulting, training, coordinating, and supervising the sales and marketing divisions of organizations to become revenue producing teams. He has successfully developed sales strategies, goals and incentive programs for these organizations which, upon implementation, resulted in more productivity in a year’s time than had been accomplished in the company's history.
Since 2007, Ron has faithfully served Hilton Sutton World Ministries as General Manager/ Associate Minister. This great honor has given Ron the opportunity to come alongside his father in the faith, Dr. Hilton Sutton, and assist this senior leader in the body of Christ in establishing his last phase of ministry.
Ron is radically committed to the building of the local church. His biblical conviction that the local church is the most valuable work in the earth today (Matt 16:18) causes him to encourage congregations throughout the nation to support their Pastor and be actively involved with the Lord’s vision for that assembly. His practical yet timely messages strengthen a future hope in the heart of believers, motivating them to rise up and take their place in the Body of Christ by advancing the cause of Christ through their local church.
Ron and Denise Jutze currently reside with their children in Woodstock, GA., a suburb of Atlanta.
