Children's Minister

My name is Aleshia Ruehl, and I was born and raised in a small town in East Texas. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Texas of the Permian Basin, and an elementary teaching certificate from the University of Texas at Dallas. My passion is engaging children in the beauty of God and his love, serving the community, watching and playing sports, reading, and traveling. My very supportive husband, and best friend, Martin and I have four wonderful children, Jordan, William, Natalie, and Alayna. When Martin and I stepped into the doors of High Pointe in 2015, we knew we’d found a church that shared our desire for Christ and connecting with others, and we never looked back. We jumped right into serving in the Children’s Ministry teaching bible classes and other leadership opportunities, and I’m thrilled that the Lord was so good to allow me to expand that role here at High Pointe!

Luis has a passion for preaching the Gospel and evangelizing where ever he goes. His desire is to be like Christ who took any opportunity to evangelize the ones around him. He has gone to the Bahamas, Latin America, and throughout the eastern sea coast states to preach the Gospel. One of his ministries is to set-up events to be able to preach the Gospel, like Health Fairs, and Men’s Conference, with a twofold plan. One to have the men grow spiritually, and two, to bring to Christ the seekers that come. Luis and his wife Esperanza have a son name Jacob Elijah. Both Luis and Esperanza are studying at Texas International Bible Institute, and will graduate this year.

Hey everyone! I'm married to my beautiful wife Stephanie and we live in Anna, Tx.  

I love equipping others to do discipleship as well as sharing the Word and seeking to connect others to know Christ. 

 

If you've ever wondered how to do discipleship-how to fulfill the Great Commission from Matthew 28:18-20, connect with me. If you would like to connect more to know about Christ, and/or are seeking community with other Christians, or just seeking to grow in Christ, email me at the email above and we'll get you connected.

 

I'd love to hear from you and I look forward to connecting with you- God bless!

 

2 Timothy 2:2: "And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others."
