Ron Hughes is the Executive Director of FBH International. He developed his interest in technology and mass communications during his high school years in Peterborough, Ontario. He received a Bachelor of Applied Arts degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson University where he graduated as the program’s “outstanding graduate.” He gained experience working in both commercial and cultural radio stations in Southern Ontario as well as engaging in freelance production.
In 1983, he and his wife, Debbie, moved to Ecuador where they served as missionaries for 10 years. There, Ron produced radio specials and numerous music albums as well as several videos. Some of these videos were the first ever produced in Ecuador’s major indigenous languages. During his time in Latin America, Ron also engaged in church planting and Bible teaching ministries.
In 1993, the Hughes family returned to Canada at the invitation of FBH International (then Family Bible Hour). Since then Ron has produced and hosted the weekly English language program and overseen the international aspects of the ministry. During his time, the daily “Science Shorts” feature with Dr. David Humphreys was added to the existing weekly programming. FBH International and Science Shorts parted ways amicably in 2007, but Ron continues to develop new ideas for FBH and has an active itinerant preaching ministry as well as speaking at conferences and retreats.
