Being born and raised in Ottawa, Jeff and Ruth, love their city and have a heart to see people in our nation’s capital come to know and follow Jesus. Living in the heart of Westboro, the Scotts are highschool sweethearts and have four crazy awesome kids: Gabriel, Joel, Thomas, and Violet. When not enjoying time at the neighbourhood park or beach, Jeff and Ruth drink LOTS of great coffee (four kids, remember!), running, and good books & movies.
Beyond being a full-time mom, Ruth is also a registered nurse at the local hospital. Jeff has his Bachelors in Religious Studies and a Masters in Theological Studies, and is an ordained minister with the Associated Gospel Churches of Canada. He has served as an intern in churches in Oakville and Ottawa, before pastoring a large and thriving young adult group at the Metropolitan Bible Church.
Jeff has a passion for honest, straightforward, real and practical-for-life-today teaching of the Bible that stems from a firm belief that it’s message about Jesus and a life lived knowing and following Him is ultimately the most important thing any of us can ever know and center our lives upon.
Tim and Susan Auld have been serving in ministry together for many years in the United States & Canada. They have jumped fully into ministry at WestVillage, with Tim serving as the Executive Pastor and Susan as the Director of Kids Ministry. They are parents to Josh & Emma.
