Ralph is a third-generation Californian who grew up in La Mesa, a suburb of San Diego. At 7’1” he played basketball for legendary Coach John Wooden at UCLA and was the first player to go to four NCAA Final-Four Tournaments. During both his junior and senior years he was an Academic All-American, graduating with a degree in ecosystems. He earned his Master of Divinity degree from The Master’s Seminary some years later.

After four years with Athletes in Action he played briefly with the Dallas Mavericks as the first player they signed in the NBA expansion draft in 1980.
After his basketball days, he served in sports ministry as the director of the trade organization of America’s sports ministry movement, Sports Outreach America. Ralph and his wife Danielle founded Capitol Ministries® in 1996 in the California State Capitol as a ministry to Members of the California Legislature. Capitol Ministries® has birthed dozens of ministries in capitols throughout the United States and the world.
In 2010 Ralph and Danielle launched Capitol Ministries® in Washington DC, where Ralph now teaches separate weekly Bible studies to Members of the White House Cabinet, Senate, and House.
Ralph and Danielle share three grown children, John, Susan, and Scott, and seven grandchildren.
