Ron Bartlett has been serving on the Cedar Falls Bible Conference Board of Directors for the past two years and is currently the Board Secretary. Many of you have witnessed his servant’s heart in his help getting facilities ready for events, assisting with grounds work, and helping with repairs.
A lifetime Waterloo native, he began attending the Cedar Falls Bible Conference while in junior high. He met his wife, Carol, at the Orchard Hill Reformed Church in Cedar Falls, where they both attended. They started dating when they were in college at UNI and got married after Carol graduated.

Their son, Justin, travels with Christian bands as a sound technician.
A graduate of the North American Baptist Seminary, Bartlett has been in full-time Christian ministry for almost 40 years. He was a radio announcer at both KNWS and KNWC Christian radio stations, and was the Director of Youth for Christ in West Union, Iowa for three years. He has served churches in Valley Springs, SD, Cedar Falls, Iowa, Parkersburg, Iowa, Hudson, Iowa, and is now serving at the First Baptist Church in Dunkerton, Iowa.
As the new Operations Manager for Riverview, Bartlett is looking forward to meeting the residents that call Riverview home and the many attendees who take advantage of the facilities for the concerts, conferences and other events. Please join us in welcoming Ron into this new position.
