Radio Evangelist and sex criminal, Ralph Stair has left us and gone to Heaven.

Brother Stair of Overcomer Ministry has passed away


CANADYS, S.C. (WCSC) – The Colleton County coroner said an evangelist who founded the Overcomer Ministry in the county has died.

Ralph G. Stair died of heart failure at his home, according to Coroner Richard Harvey. Harvey said Stair had been under hospice care.

His age was not immediately clear.

The coroner’s office listed Stair as 84, but Stair’s Overcomer Ministry, which announced his passing on its website, listed his age as 87 and his time of death as 11:17 p.m. Saturday.

At the time of his death, Stair was awaiting trial after being accused of sexually assaulting several women and children at the ministry.

Stair was arrested on Dec. 18, 2017, by Colleton County deputies and agents from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office said. Stair was arrested on eight warrants and agents also executed a search warrant at Overcomer Ministry.

The charges from that arrest included three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, one count of assault with the intent to commit criminal sexual conduct first degree, one count of kidnapping, one count of first-degree burglary, one count of second-degree assault and one count of third-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.[…]

I'm sure his prerecorded programs will play on for years''

Some refer to him as Brother Scare.

Yeah his show was on 1530am WCKY, it was creepy as hell IMO. I believe he was/is also on 94.1fm from down around Findlay Ohio. The overcomer. I've heard some crazy story's about him.

I remember when I was a younger teenager in the 90's who had just stumbled across a shortwave radio, I came across The Overcomer Ministry late at night. At first, I thought this was a robot voice. I also remember listening late at night, and the house was dead silent except for my radio, after Brother Stair would preach about the end of the world, he would pause, then say "Maranatha" followed by bugles playing a minor chord repeatedly, followed by some chorus singing. Something about that creeped younger me the F out.

When I'm out riding my bike in Florida I go by an Overcomer Church. Don't know if there's any connection. It isn't a very prosperous looking church

Never heard of this bastard before... guess that's a good thing. I hope he's in Hell where he belongs.

He's still all over the shortwave bands. Mostly on brokered-time stations like WRMI and WWCR. His stuff will probably air for years to come, just like the late Dr. Gene Scott (now that dude was hours of entertainment).


Shortwave is the ORIGINAL satellite radio.

Brother Stair and the late Angry Grandpa kinda look alike.

I heard his show once on 1530 from Cincy and it was spooky as hell. Didn't know he was into sex trafficing like the 3 'ministers' in Toledo and two of their wives arrested for the same? Sad sham. Probably still on the air until the money pot runs dry and the lawyers get their hands on it?
