Ruth McNeill is wife to John, who leads the University Student Ministry for Agape Europe; mother to four grown daughters, two of whom are married and grandmother to two girls. It is her greatest delight when all the family come home at the same time! Having been a Home Economics teacher before joining Agape 27 years ago, her hobbies lie in the cooking and sewing departments. Ruth and John served five years with Agape in Malawi, then 10 years in Namibia, where they launched the ministry. Currently she and John live in Birmingham, England.
Helping to lead the work in Namibia enabled Ruth to develop skills related to Leadership Development, HR, Training, Member Care and Strategic Development. She feels God used the time in Namibia to prepare her for directing Staff Care and Development for Agape Europe.
