Wingfield Ministries is extremely pleased to be able to count Ruth Graham McIntyre as a member of our team. Ruth is an experienced and highly sought after conference speaker. She brings a new and Biblical perspective to all who hear her speak about her journey of faith. Ruth will be a featured speaker at Encounters and at special luncheons during the Encounter week. Ruth talks honestly about her personal life as she communicates her faith in a warm and winning manner. Ruth has already made many friends in Canton and Coshocton, Ohio and Plattsburgh, New York when we visited those towns for the ministry in 2000 and 2001.
