Pastor Ron Moxon was born and raised in California. He accepted Christ as his Saviour, was baptized, and called to preach at the age of 13, at Sharon Missionary Baptist Church, in Long Beach. After graduating from High School in 1973, he enlisted into the U.S. Army and was honorably discharged in 1976.
Pastor Ron and his wife, Vickie, moved to Phoenix in 1979 and attended Thomas Road Baptist Church, where they rededicated their lives to Christ and surrendered to full-time ministry. At TRBC, they were actively involved in the AWANA, Jr. High ministry, and the outreach program. While in Phoenix, he graduated from Phoenix College, with an Associate in General Studies, and AZ College of the Bible, with a Certificate of Bible.
In 1983, they returned to California, so he could attend Pacific Coast Baptist Bible College in San Dimas, where he received a Graduate of Christian Education. Pastor Moxon has also graduated from Heritage Baptist College, with a Bachelor in Theology, and Baptist Seminary, with a Masters and Doctorate of Theology. Vickie has graduated from Baptist Seminary, where she earned a Bachelor of Theology.
While attending PCBBC, he was on staff at Faith Baptist Church in Riverside, Pastor Norman Duncan, as an Associate Pastor / School Administrator. At Faith, Vickie was actively involved in the ministry as well, serving as a High School teacher, Sunday School teacher, and secretary. Pastor Ron was ordained into the gospel ministry in 1986.
Faith Baptist Church, in February of 1990, sent the Moxons out to plant their first church – Cornerstone Bible Baptist Church of Twenty-Nine Palms, CA. From there, the Lord led them to either plant new churches or pastor struggling churches, in both California and Iowa, before coming to Desert Springs Baptist Church in June of 2008.
