Ron Moorman has taken a spiritual journey through life, and served humanity each step of the way. Born in Ohio, he attended Catholic parochial schools and a high school level seminary program before enrolling in a Catholic seminary at St. Joseph's College. Following his ordination in 1966, he served parishes in Iowa and Missouri before leaving the priesthood in 1970. Ron spent the next thirty-one years in child-centered social work, first with the IL Department of Children and Family Services, and then with the Child Care Association of Illinois, many of those years as its director. Following his retirement in 2001, Ron returned to the ministry, this time as a Lutheran pastor in the ELCA Synod, serving the congregation at Luther Memorial Church in Springfield.
