Ramesh Richard started preaching during his midteens with church youth groups in the open markets of South India. His international ministry began at 19 as he traveled to neighboring countries, speaking and playing his guitar on India's very first and only Youth for Christ "Teen Team."

In 1975 five young Americans brought him to Portland, Oregon, to attend Multnomah School of the Bible. Before long he was encouraged to transfer to Dallas Theological Seminary on full scholarship, from which he graduated at the top of his class with a Th.D. in 1982. Dr. Richard accepted the call to be the pastor of Delhi Bible Fellowship in Delhi, India, from 1983-1987. During this time he enrolled in a Ph.D program at the University of Delhi and was invited to preach and teach in other cities and countries. As his itinerant ministry began to take shape, it needed a sturdy vehicle for implementation.

Dallas Theological Seminary invited Dr. Richard to return to teach across three departments in 1987, expressing a strong willingness to be the platform for his expanding proclamation ministry. Their Pastoral Ministries department went down on their knees with Ramesh in prayer about his heart and future. Also that year, six businessmen came together to form Ramesh Richard Evangelism and Church Helps International (RREACH International) to support his desire to reach into large numbers of desperate souls around our world with lasting solutions.

1988-With encouragement by an Indian missionary couple in Afghanistan, an International Prayer Circle of more than 1,000 international friends begins to cover Ramesh in prayer.

1989-Ramesh travels all over the U.S. and Canada, approaching friends with the idea of forming a financial and prayer support base for his travels. Soon after, the RREACH National Advisory Council is formed.

1997-2000-RREACH founds T.O.P.I.C. (Trainers of Pastors International Coalition) to serve pastoral training organizations worldwide.

1998-Ramesh's preaching seminar on Scripture Sculpture in Manila, Philippines, is videotaped for mass production and used as a curriculum guide for training pastors and a gift to seminary libraries worldwide.

2000-The world's largest secular satellite television network airs a New Year's Day evangelistic talk by Ramesh Richard internationally during primetime. The Gospel is seen and heard in Asia, Africa, the Caribbean and the Middle East on Y2K-the largest television-watched day in history-and becomes an annual event.
