Dr. Gaff is a staff of Campus Crusade for Christ, serving six years in the United States before coming to the Philippines in 1979. His first years in the Philippines were spent helping build Filipino leaders for Great Commission ministry and the last two decades to developing Asian leaders as a faculty member at IGSL.

Dr. Ron Gaff holds to the personal conviction that the Great Commission is an educational mandate to make leaders who make leaders. He believes that developing Great Commission leaders is the supreme and most enduring leadership development endeavor entrusted to man.
He is married to Jennifer Gaff, and they have two daughters, Caitlin and Renae. Basketball, exercise and carpentry are some of the things he enjoys in his spare time.
