Ruthie Westfahl grew up in the wide-open spaces of Wyoming. Ruthie ministered with her family in the western town of Laramie WY, before serving at the Indianapolis Training Center. As the Front Desk Manager, Ruthie greeted students, business leaders, and foreign dignitaries as they came through the doors of the Training Center. Her warm smile welcomed them into the spotless chandeliered lobby and into a hospitality experience that many called, “elegant” and “memorable.”
Ruthie has a heart for discipleship and loves investing in family, friends, and young ladies. For the past seven years, Ruthie has directed the JOY Program, a discipleship ministry at a women’s maximum-security state prison in Florida. Her life verse is 1 Peter 3:15 — “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.”
At Excel, Ruthie will bring powerful teaching on topics such as women’s ministry, spiritual warfare, evangelism, and personal disciplines.
