Ruth Hawk, M.A. Biblical Languages, Director of Children’s Ministries
Ruth is a recent transplant from New England, where she was born and raised and graduated from seminary with a Master’s degree in biblical languages. While in New England, she was a member of and actively involved in All Saints’ Anglican Church in Amesbury. Her roles there over the years included teaching a course for the women’s Bible study, hosting a small group with her husband, Adam, participating in Lay Eucharistic Visiting, volunteering in the nursery, and coordinating nursery volunteers. She enjoys being part of a congregation that actively takes care of and disciples the children among them, and looks forward to being a part of that process at Church of the Resurrection. She and her husband, Adam, have two little boys, David and Aidan.
