Ruth has been Minister of Worship at Hope Church since 2018. After graduating from Samford University with a Master of Music degree in Voice Performance, she felt called to serve the church with her gifts in music. Though classically trained in opera, she enjoys performing and arranging within a wide range of music styles from Folk to Contemporary. 

Ruth lives with Bob, her husband of 18 years and her 4 children. 

She has a passion for vibrant worship that is rich with the transformative truth of the Gospel.

“The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.”  J. S. Bach (1685-1750)
