ASI Staff

inside_asi_fall_08_page_10_image_0002ASI is delighted to introduce our new secretary treasurer, Ramon Chow. Born in Colombia to Chinese and Polish parents—hence his Spanish and Chinese name—Ramon began his career as assistant treasurer at the Adventist university in Medellin, Colombia. He then served in Costa Rica and Nicaragua before moving to the United States, where he has held leadership positions at La Sierra University, Atlantic Union College, and the Southern New England, Texas and Chesapeake Conferences.

Having attended multiple ASI Conventions as a conference representative, Ramon was always impressed by the commitment and motivation of ASI members. And when asked to consider the secretary treasurer position, he prayerfully sought the Lord’s will. When the offer came, Ramon felt that God had opened this door for a reason. So he accepted the call, and began full-time in mid-September.

“I am humbled,” says Ramon, “and I appreciate the confidence of the leadership of ASI in inviting me to join forces with a multitude of people who willingly give of their time, resources and talents to sharing Christ.” He also describes his excitement about ASI’s commitment to using technology and wise resource investments to maximize the impact of evangelistic efforts.

Ramon is married to Elizabeth, a registered nurse who currently works in the church ministries department of the Chesapeake Conference. They have no children, but love spending time with their nephews and nieces. An avid Ham Radio hobbyist, Ramon enjoys talking with friends around the world and holds advanced licenses in the US and Colombia.
