Rev. Ruth Tonn - Pastor of Families and Community Outreach

 

Ruth Tonn will tell you that God called her to ministry when she was 13 years old, but she took the scenic route getting there. Literally! After 20 years of driving every highway and byway in North America as a professional long-haul driver and then having a career in industrial sales, Ruth moved to Nova Scotia in 2006 and held leadership roles in church and community ministries.  Ruth is convinced that God is actively at work in the world and is passionate about helping people grow as disciples of Jesus. She is obsessed with mission trips to Cuba and has a growing collection of Cuban treasures.  Rev. Ruth has two adult sons and lives with her rambunctious cats, Maybe and Kinda. For additional information, click here
