About Billy Joe
“Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven” Matthew 6:10, is Billy Joe’s life verse. Two words describe Billy Joe: Father and Connector. He carries a father’s heart toward younger ministers, ministry couples and market place leaders, encouraging and coaching them toward visualizing and building the Kingdom of God. Looking for counsel, connection and relationship? He is available!
God is speaking to Billy Joe presently about our personal responsibility to stand for righteousness and justice.
As he sought the Lord after the Supreme Court decision on same sex marriage and in view of recent developments in our state and nation, Billy Joe heard a clear word from the Lord from Ephesians 6. “And having done all to stand, STAND FIRM.” He believes it is our responsibility to personally walk in Kingdom principles in our daily lives and make a firm STAND, regardless whether in the pulpit, governmental office or market place. At present he is moving forward with this mandate to call the men and women in our state to stand. For more information on how to be a part of this movement, click here, and let’s start a conversation about how we can see this rise up in our state.
One of Ruthie’s greatest joys is teaching the workshop, “Your Destiny, His Glory, the how and why of your design.” The basis of this workshop is from Arthur Burk’s revelation of the 7 Redemptive gifts outlined in Romans 12. By understanding some of the ways our Father’s fingerprint is reflected in their lives through studying the ‘7’s” in the Bible, this workshop gives believers greater understanding of their own distinctive purpose, destiny and passion in His Kingdom.
She also enjoys speaking at conferences, small groups and women’s retreats. She is skilled in teaching on diverse topics, all within the realm of releasing the Kingdom within our daily lives, including:
- Women of the Bible
- Discovering our Jewish Roots
- Loving and Praying for land and cities
Ruthie and Billy Joe have been married 46 years, have three daughters who are married and one son. Her favorite thing to do is to go on great adventures in the woods behind her home with her 11 grandchildren.
