The RHM team of creative writers and producers make art that will change lives. Through short films, printed material, websites and social media, RHM addresses felt needs that will lead people to the cross of Jesus Christ.

Broadcasting the Gospel through radio is a strategic tool for spiritual rescue. Today, the flagship program, "A Word With You," presents the Gospel worldwide in the world's top six most-spoken languages.

Finally, On Eagles' Wings is the Native American outreach of RHM. On Eagles' Wings is a leading youth ministry to the Indigenous young people of the United States and Canada. For almost 30 years, On Eagles' Wings has trained and equipped Native American young people to reach their people for Jesus. Through the annual Warrior Leadership Summit discipleship conference, and the Summer of Hope reservation tour, thousands of Native lives have been impacted for Christ.

Mission statement

RHM uses the following to express its mission:

To communicate Christ to the lost in their language;

To motivate and equip believers to communicate Christ to the lost in their world.

Statement of faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that God has established marriage as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman and that all intimate sexual activity outside the marriage relationship, whether heterosexual, homosexual, or otherwise, is immoral and therefore sin (Gen. 2:24-25; Ex.20:14,17,22:19; Lev.18:22-23,20:13,15-16; Matt.19:4-6,9; Rom.1:18-31; I Cor. 6:9-10, 15-20; I Tim. 1:8-11; Jude 7). We believe that God created the human race male and female and that all conduct with the intent to adopt a gender other than one's birth gender is immoral and therefore sin (Gen 1:27; Deut. 22:5). "But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.' 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate." (Mark 10:6-9)

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries (RHM) is all about "spiritual rescue."

The mission statement of Jesus is "to seek and to save the lost" (Luke 19:10). RHM seeks to join Jesus in this mission, by sharing the unchanging Gospel message of Jesus to a world of lost people.

Upon graduating from Moody Bible Institute, Ron and Karen Hutchcraft began their married life with a clear vision for reaching teenagers with the Good News of Jesus. As an intrinsic part of the Youth for Christ movement, Ron Hutchcraft was both a pioneer and leader in cross-cultural ministry.

By 1991, Ron Hutchcraft was in high demand as a speaker, radio host and author. "Ron Hutchcraft Ministries" (RHM) was established to accelerate the national and international influence of its founder.

Today, RHM remains all about "Communicating Christ to the Lost in their Language" - the RHM team is passionate about sharing the Good News of Jesus to today's generation. They seek to reach lost people where they are, and in ways they will understand.
