To Every Tribe
Ron and Jen are from Sycamore, IL and have been married since July 2010. They both graduated from Northern Illinois University where Ron became a physical education teacher and Jen a registered nurse. During their time at NIU, a passion was cultivated for discipleship and evangelism through Campus Crusade for Christ and resulted in a strong desire to use that passion for church planting among unreached people groups.
Ron and Jen are members at Kishwaukee Bible Church where they have trained and served for several years, and also completed two years of training at the Center for Pioneer Church planting in Los Fresnos, TX. The Keres’ are serving as missionaries with To Every Tribe as part of the first missionary team sent to the First Nations people of Northwest Ontario, Canada. They are currently living in Sioux Lookout, Ontario, working hard to learn the Ojibway dialect of Cat Lake with plans to move to Cat Lake First Nation as soon as a duplex is built for their team. Their goal is to live long-term in Cat Lake with the hope of planting a self-sustaining, self-reproducing, Native-led church founded on the gospel of Jesus Christ and the word of God, in a culturally appropriate way.
Ron & Jen have two boys, Owen and Graham.
