In 1982 I accepted Jesus as my Savior and discovered a love and passion to collect Christian Music. As my collection grew into the thousands, I became concerned about its future. So I searched for a ministry that would protect, preserve and provide the music worth saving that would impact lives for Christ globally, but to no avail.
A few years ago, I had an opportunity to accept thousands of vinyl albums, but sadly, we had no additional storage space and instead could only snap some pictures and shoot a video from my Iphone as I watched a garbage truck crunch and haul away God’s Music. That was the turning point when I realized I was being called to Christian music preservation.
My wife Mayda and I are now serving full time with “The Historic Preservation of Recorded Christian Music Project”. As with any walk of Faith, there are struggles along the way. One day I was having a "why me pity party" with God about this calling. Then in a split second, God got my attention and impressed upon me this message... "Ron, first, quit calling this Ron & Mayda's ministry! This is MY ministry, MY MUSIC! I will bring others to MY Project, some you know and some you do not know!"
Is HE calling you to partner?
Do you have a love for Christian Music and a passion for this Mission? If so, this project needs partners to pray, give of their talents, and monthly financial support or gifts of any size. You are needed right now.
Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
Serving God & others for HIS Glory, Ron Maxwell
THE HISTORIC PRESERVATION OF RECORDED CHRISTIAN MUSIC PROJECT
God said "This is MY ministry, MY MUSIC and I will bring others to MY Project,
some you know and some you do not know"!
If you are someone I do not know yet, I asked others who do know me to provide you with their endorsement. Their kind words are an encouragement to me because when I fall short, which I often do, I am reminded that Jesus Christ is the only perfect one we strive to be like in this life.

ONCE MOODY RADIO PURCHASED THE STATION, THEY SAW IN RON A REAL TALENT AND PASSIONATE HARD WORKER WHICH LED THEM TO PROMOTING RON TO OVERSEE AND HOST THE MORNING SHOW FROM THEIR TAMPA/ST.

Listen to Ron Maxwell's Radio Interview with Moody Radio co-host Kate Bruington & meteorologist Alan Winfield...
What Ron Maxwell is doing is nothing short of amazing. The Christian Music Preservation Project is so needed, way beyond of what most of us have thought about. We have such incredible music that we need to make sure is preserved for generations to come. Our children, grand children and great grand children need to have access to this music and the life changing message that has changed so many lives.

I have known Ron for decades and had the privilege of our working together for many years with the Moody Broadcasting Network of Chicago.
He is not only trustworthy, but a professional in every sense of the word. More than this, he is what I call, 'a pro-active kind of guy'.....meaning Ron has a knack of being able to discern what's ahead when it comes to technology and its needs for the future - and then taking necessary measures so as not to be caught unaware when that time comes. His integrity, dedication, and tenacity are qualities that set Ron apart from most. Ken Senes | School Principal
Music is a force used to spiritually influence lives for Christ!
