Ruth Perrin


Ruth is a wonderfully gifted Bible teacher who beautifully blends a deep attention to Scripture, real empathy for her hearers and honest insight into the life of faith.  She had us both laughing and crying as she opened up the Gospels.  Not only was her Bible overview gripping and entertaining, it left people longing for more!  Everyone left asking: “when can we hear her again?”

Ruth led a MBTI training day for our church staff. This was warmly appreciated by the team. Ruth is a skilled trainer who helpfully led us to reflect on our respective personality types and on team dynamics more generally. I am familiar with Myers Briggs and have experienced similar sessions before, but this was undoubtedly the most helpful MBTI day I have participated in. I highly recommend Ruth.

I’ve seen Bible Overview six or seven times as a student and now a student worker. Not only does it affect me each time, but I have seen the impact on countless students. There is a light bulb moment as they see how the broad narrative of scripture all fits together. It breathes new life into their engagement with Scripture and aids them as they go forward in their life of discipleship. Bring tissues!

[Bible Overview]

Ruth was head and shoulders above anyone else as our first choice to contribute at the EA Council on the subject of young adults, mission and church.  She embodies extensive academic expertise with passionate, articulate and engaging communication.  Both of these were in plain evidence at our gathering, where participants left inspired to make changes in their spheres of influence.  Ruth is a much-needed voice and an invaluable gift to the church.

Ruth is an insightful commentator on culture and excellent communicator. She is very real but also full of hope in how she teaches. I have always felt encouraged and equipped by Ruth’s teaching. She is simply brilliant when speaking about understanding millennials and how the church can bring love and healing to that generation. Ruth is funny, warm and challenging.

Ruth has undertaken several pieces of research to help us better understand the complexities of discipleship and faith formation and evaluate the impact of resources. Ruth’s project management and direct engagement in qualitative research is ideally suited to this task and has helped generate key insights.

Ruth Perrin is an excellent MBTI practitioner/instructor. She uses her considerable experience and outstanding communication skills to deliver a workshop which enables the participants to deepen their self-awareness and develop their understanding of how their profile impacts on their ministry and working in teams. She has considerable knowledge of the context of Christian ministry and this provides many additional benefits to the exceptional workshop that Ruth offers.
