How Pastor Raul Ries & Congregation OVERCAME ALL OBSTACLES at Diamond Bar, CA
Calvary Chapel Golden Springs, & Pastor Raul Ries, 60, is the Senior Pastor and President of Somebody Loves You Ministries.
After his miraculous conversion in 1972, Raul began to read and study the Bible extensively even though he had a limited education. In 1974 he began a home Bible study with seven other committed individuals. Soon, he started to preach and counsel youth during the noon hour at his former high school, Baldwin Park High. Thereafter, Raul would visit several high school campuses conducting Bible studies each week.
Calvary Chapel West Covina grew out of Raul's home fellowship as well as his Kung-Fu studio and was soon meeting weekly at an old converted Safeway store.
In 1993, the congregation moved to Diamond Bar and occupied a 101,000 square-foot corporate building on twenty-eight acres. Calvary Chapel Golden Springs (as it is now called) draws between 12,000 - 14,000 in attendance weekly.
Somebody Loves You Ministries, directed by Raul Ries, encompasses Somebody Loves You Radio as well as crusade evangelism, concert outreaches, and film/video production.
Raul Ries' 30-minute syndicated radio program, Somebody Loves You Radio, is heard daily nationwide.
The Somebody Loves You Crusades, since their inception in 1993, have drawn over 340,000 in attendance with some 23,392 registered decisions for Christ. The high-energy crusades feature popular Christian rock and alternative bands with a simple and straightforward message by Raul Ries. The crusades, though attracting all ages, have a high percentage of youth in attendance.
Beginning his ministry with little education, Raul Ries now holds three Masters Degrees from Azusa Pacific University and a Doctorate of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary.
Author of several books, including
Fury to Freedom (the story of his early life and dramatic conversion -- translated in six languages),
Raul Ries has also produced three films:
Fury to Freedom (feature film dramatization of the book);
A Quiet Hope (a riveting and stirring documentary detailing seven soldier's accounts of the Vietnam War and its aftermath); and
A Venture in Faith (a documentary of the history of the Calvary Chapel movement).
