Ron & Angela Bunyard – North Texas Area Director


Ron, a native Okie (short for a person from Oklahoma), has been working with international students at UTA for three years. Ron is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth. He first began working with students in 1984 serving three different churches as a youth pastor. Ron developed a love for international people during his nine years living and working in South Korea. In South Korea, Ron served as the chaplain at Taejon Christian International School and interim pastor of Christian International Church in Daejeon, South Korea. During his time there, Ron was able to travel extensively through Asia. Ron’s perspective of the world grew much bigger along with his passion to give and serve all people of the world.

Ron served as campus director at UTA and now serves as area director for North Texas. He looks forward to many years of serving international students here in Texas. Ron would love the opportunity to get to know you as an international student and learn about you and your home culture.

Ron’s hobbies include playing golf, which he loves to teach students, keeping up with his Dallas Cowboys and spending time with his wife and daughter; Angela and Sarah.


Angela, also originally from Oklahoma, is a full time nurse and has a passion for general health of people.


Ron’s daughter Sarah is married to Evan Halferty. She recently joined staff with ISI after having lived in the Papua New Guinea for a couple of years.
