Pastor Phil Ruiz has spent two decades in Milford. He and his wife, Melissa, have been married for 19 years and have two children, Phillip Micheal and Sarai.
Pastor Phil felt a call at an early age and has been in church since his teens. He recalls how the Gospel became more and more apparent as he came into adulthood, “God saved me and he has a purpose for my life and family.
“In 2011 we planted what is now Hope Community Bible Fellowship Church. I wanted the Gospel to be heard in our community, by all people, especially those who have been weary and broken-hearted. The Gospel was and is the answer – Christ is our help. Hope Community is a place of refuge and of hope. I want to witness God bring together a community that is committed to helping one another make it to heaven and living for his glory!”
