Ricardo Miller has committed the last 17 years to reaching children. Here’s a glimpse of his journey over the past decade and a half.
In the “prime” of his street life, the year 1995 Ricardo Miller was a young man who finally realized that the traveling would not soon lead to the life he dreamed of. Hanging out in the “Sugar Kid Bowe” area of New Providence, Ricardo began looking around him and he realized that everyone else in his presence had the same story. They were all going nowhere fast. He had to ask himself, “Is this what I want out of life,” questioned Ricardo.
Realizing that this environment was not one that would produce the kind of future he’d hoped for as a child, he began his search for a better, more promising life. Ricardo began going to church in search of more fulfillment. He soon accepted Christ in his life and began to seek out ways to develop his potential as a leader. One year after becoming a Christian, Ricardo and a group of friends returned to the Ramferly Home for Children, an organization at which he was assigned to volunteer in High School, where he began working with the children. After meeting with them every weekend for several months, he was informed by the director of the requirement to establish himself as an official organization. Ricardo established the name “Words At Work Children’s Ministries” to reflect his sincerity to put actions to his words and commitment to walking in integrity. “Words at Work Children’s Ministries” grew to be the fastest developing children’s organization in the Bahamas and was renowned for its success in reaching young boys throughout the country with its mentoring program. In the year 2000, Ricardo married Isha Miller and relocated to Arlington, Texas where he then changed the name of the ministry to “Ricardo Miller Children's Ministries”. As Ricardo travels and speaks a powerful word to young people, his wife, Isha Miller is gifted in music and leads an incredible time of Praise and Worship with the children.
Ricardo Miller became certified as Licensed Child Evangelist and Children’s Counselor. He became one of the most influential and celebrated young men in the Bahamas and is now making an impact and “Raising the Standard in Children’s Ministry” throughout the United States. This young man who was the “bad boy group leader” turned his life around and sought ways to contribute back to the society, a feat he seeks to pass on to future generations through his organization, Ricardo Miller Children’s Ministries. After nearly two decades, he continues to be an inspiring speaker with both substance and relevance and one of the most in-demand motivational coaches in the world to young people and their families.
