Our Leadership


Chris Ruwaldt and his wife Karol have pastored churches across Texas, Missouri, and Oklahoma for more than 20 years. They came to Alva January 1, 2017. They have four wonderful children: Todd, Kelli, Allison, and Kendra. Chris decided to follow Jesus in March of 1987 after a realization that he was lost and in need of a Savior. Chris is involved with many activities in the community. He is the color commentator for Goldbug Athletics on the Goldbug Sports Radio Network. He is also the Chaplain for the Woods County Sheriffs Department. His desire is to see people come to know Christ, be discipled, and then reach other people for Christ.
