Ruth and her husband, Mike, moved to the Roseburg area in 1999. They started attending Redeemer's after trying a couple of churches and knew they had found their church home. Ruth volunteered with Redeemer's for seven years, with Wendy Ashenbrenner as her mentor, and was hired full time in September 2008.
Ruth directs the Care Ministries at Redeemer's, which includes visiting the sick, elderly, and hospitalized in our body; faciliating prayer and volunteer opportunities; hosting the Senior Luncheons; coordinating the Meals Ministry; and staffing the kitchen for funerals and weddings. Ruth also oversees the Care Ministries classes: DC4K, Divorce Care, GriefShare, and Single & Parenting. In addition, she is involved in decorating our church, serving on the Benevolence Team, and managing the Plaza Café.
Ruth has a passion to see people heal beyond their circumstances and find hope in what Christ has done for us.
