Throughout Dr. Ross' more than twenty-eight years of ministry God has blessed him with a well rounded understanding of Christian living. Dr. Ross has been a Pastor, a Chaplain , and a Seminar instructor in both Texas and Oklahoma. His ten years as a Chaplain in the Texas prison system was an eye opener for him, as he ministered to many fallen believers, church leaders, and Pastors. Dr. Ross began his formal education in September 1982 and received his Doctorate in 2000. God called Dr. Ross to work with Pastors and Christians, developing discipleship programs that focused on spiritual growth and ministry training. Dr. Ross became a Certified Belief Therapist in 1999. Dr. Ross wrote a series of lessons titled “The Spiritual Roots of Distortions and Disorders,” which were compiled into FOUNDATIONS, and are being used in training Pastors, Church Staff, Congregations, Drug and Family Counselors, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, and volunteers in the Texas Prison system. Dr. Ross organized Dimensional Ministry in 1997 and has been working with Churches in discipleship and spiritual growth since that time.
Dr. Ross states that there are two valuable truths every Pastor and Church leader should know: first, disciples are raised, not birthed, and second, you cannot disciple lost people. Dr. Ross believes that Pastors and Church leaders must return to the ministerial emphasis of developing the quality of congregational maturity, as they continue to expand the quantity of people in their local churches through evangelism. Evangelism is incomplete if the discipleship of those who are saved is left undone. Dr. Ross also believes that only effective discipleship and spiritual training, that has a firm biblical foundation, will return the Church to her first love and develop an overcoming faith.
Dr. Ross retired from Pastoring in 2009, presently resides in Central Texas, is the president of Dimensional Ministry, and is an active member of his local church where he teaches discipleship and spiritual growth. During his thirty years of marriage, he has raised four children and presently has two grandsons.
