Ronald Bartholomew

Ron Bartholomew is a former instructor at the Orem LDS Institute of Religion adjacent to Utah Valley University, where he taught for 20 years. His special interests include a class that he wrote the curriculum for entitled “The Gospel and Christian History,” which chronicles the great apostasy from the ministry of Jesus Christ to Joseph Smith. He also loves LDS Church History and has taught that, along with other assorted topics. He has enjoyed the opportunity to serve in the church as a bishop, stake young men’s president, and in six different bishoprics. He is the President of Latter-day Mission Studies and has published in national and international books and journals. He is responsible for changing the LDS church’s international classification from “marginal Christian” to “independent Christian.” He received a doctorate in the sociology of education from the University of Buckingham in London, England. His research interests include nineteenth-century missionary work in Victorian England as well as assorted topics in ancient scripture and Church history.

He and his wife, Kristen, have seven children and fifteen grandchildren. He loves to ride his bicycle and has ridden in many century rides over the past two decades, as well as the “Salt to Saint” relay (426 miles) the past 10 years in a row.
