Nik and Ruth, with 3 children, served for over 32 years obeying Christ’s command to share Jesus across the globe. After 7 years in Malawi & South Africa, they moved to Nairobi, Kenya to begin work among the Somali people (1991-1997). Since that time (1998-Pres.) they have journeyed globally among people whom, when they gave their lives to Jesus, faced increasing persecution for their faith. Currently the Ripkens have interviewed over 600 believers in persecution, exceeding 72 countries. Nik is also the author of Insanity of God, describing his personal journey in ministry.
