Ronnie and Misty Collins

We face many issues in our great community, such as a major drug problem and rising taxes. One politician will not make our community a better, safer place to live and raise our children. I truly believe the only way to make this a reality is to work together as a community and as a team. In order for us to successfully impact our community, we have to meet face to face and have conversations about these issues and come up solutions together. I am here and I am willing to serve with you on this team. A vote for Ronnie is a vote for you to have a voice in your local government.

Personal Information

I was born on August 28, 1965 to Gray and Sylvia Collins; and have been a proud resident of Carroll County, VA my entire life. I am married to my amazing wife Misty; and have been blessed with 3 awesome children: Michael, Samuel, and Judah; and 3 wonderful grandchildren.

I believe that life is to be lived to the fullest and in order for life to be full and blessed, we have to serve and bless others as we have been blessed.

I am an Ordained Elder in The United Methodist Church and I am the founding pastor of an amazing church family called Out of the Box Worship Center on Main Street in Hillsville, VA.  Along with two worship services on Sunday we offer a free food and clothing ministry open to the public, a recovery ministry to addicts, and a jail ministry to men and women in the New River Valley Regional Jail. Our goal is to help make our community a better place for everyone through being the hands and feet of Jesus Christ.

Some will ask, with a plate this full; being pastor of a growing and active church, a husband, a dad, a grandfather, a substitute teacher, and an owner/operator of rental properties; why would I want to get into local politics. The simple answer is as follows…

I desire to serve my community in the most effective ways possible. I have the honor as a pastor to serve the people of our community in some of the most intimate and personal manners. Officiating weddings, baptizing babies and adults, speaking to their greatest hurts and needs, working with those addicted to find freedom, visiting with those who are sick and in prison, and sitting by the bedside of those in their final moments here on earth. This work is demanding and very rewarding at the same time.

I want to serve our community through local government in order to help meet the needs of a greater number of people and to give them a voice. I want to serve and give back to a community that has given my family and I many happy years.
