Neil Ruda & Family — Assemblies of God world missionary

How long has Neil been a missionary?

Neil began serving in missions in 1982 at Western Michigan Teen Challenge, a Christian drug and alcohol rehabilitation ministry.

Are AG missionaries paid a salary?

No, the AG is a "faith" organization, which means that missionaries believe by faith that God will supply our needs each month through the faithful giving of churches and individuals. We do not receive a salary, so we need friends and churches to help us.

What are some things people can do to help the Ruda Family?

PRAY. It is through the prayers of God's people that Neil can be effective at what he does and that the unique family challenges he faces can be dealt with and overcome.

HELP. There are times when particular ministry items are needed, especially since so much of what he does involves technology. Drop him a note or message to see if there are things he needs.

GIVE. Neil is not fully funded at this time. It would be a tremendous blessing if you sense God leading you to support his family each month or on an occasional basis.

Who are the Assemblies of God?

The Assemblies of God is the fastest growing, largest Pentecostal denomination in the world. Founded in 1914, the AG is an evangelical denomination believing that salvation is only through accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.

How does someone become an AG missionary?

First, pray. The AG never recruits missionaries. Instead, as men and women sense the call of God on their lives, they go through a rigorous process that usually takes a year or more. Following the official appointment, missionaries itinerate to raise their support before heading to their field of service.
