Uniting, Igniting, Releasing, Empowering & Undergirding the Church of the Third Millennium!

When Ramona married Jim Rickard more than 50 years ago, she had no idea of the amazing adventure that the Lord had prepared for them if they said "Yes!" not only to one another, but to Him. Together they raised 4 daughters and one son, all of them now married. They have thirteen grandchildren, 3 of them married, and one great granddaughter. Ramona has served by Jim's side right from the beginning of their ministry. Together after serving from 1975 - 1985 in ministry at Way of the Cross Church, teaching a "Walk in the Spirit Class," as Home Cell Group Leaders, Youth Pastors, and traveling nationally teaching Healing Seminars and doing Healing Services, they founded Church of the Resurrection in 1985. Their church was touched powerfully by Revival in 1995 and for 6 months people came from every state in the union, and some from foreign countries, to experience a powerful touch of the Holy Spirit at the nightly meetings. Knowing that they needed to put good foundations under those who were being saved and filled with the Holy Spirit, and those who were just hungry for more, they immediately birthed a "School of the Holy Spirit" which became a full time, 2 year endeavor, "Heart for the Nations Bible School and Ministry Training Center." Ramona served as the Director of HFTN, and also as one of the teachers. The Pastors Luncheons that started during Revival developed wonderful relationships with Pastors from the 5 state area, and they soon invited those Pastors to be part of a Servant Leadership Team to put on Prophetic Conferences, beginning in 1997. Together the Rickards have founded the Midwest Apostolic Prophetic Conference, Cities Church, The International Healing Conferences, The International Association of Healing Ministries, RAIN (Resurrection Apostolic International Network), and "Revival in the Rockies," the annual RAIN Family Bible Camp which is held the last week of June each year in the beautiful mountains of Montana. Ramona travels with her husband worldwide, strengthening the ever-expanding RAIN Family of Churches, Pastors, Bible Schools, and Missionaries. She is also a sought after speaker for Women's Conferences and Events. Her book, "The Day the Angels Came" will soon be published.
