Ralph Harris
-more info

Ralph Harris is the author of the book God’s Astounding Opinion of You, and the soon to be published book, Life According to Perfect.


As you will see, his message is all about how perfect God is toward us and with us, as revealed by Christ’s cross and resurrection, and the accounts we have in the Bible—particularly the New Testament. He speaks and writes about how complete and perfect God’s work was, which results in rest, confidence, power and grace for you and me. That’s what makes life work.


He is also the president of Ralph Harris Ministries, a non-profit media ministry, which is devoted to helping people better understand the grace of God.


His goal is to offer practical, scriptural insights that challenge the way you look at God and at yourself. If you’re the type of person that likes to get a dose of truth a few times each week and occasionally dig even deeper into a particular subject, then this event is for you.
