The De Ruiters
Administration and Management in Haiti
Called to Haiti as servant-hearted leaders, committed to doing the Lord’s work.
Darryl and Shelly De Ruiter bring decades of experience to their roles in Haiti. Darryl has a high level of expertise in education, holding administration, coaching, and teaching roles. Shelly brings 26 years of physical therapy expertise, along with experience in spiritual development, having completed several classes in the Spiritual Director program through the Dominican Center in Grand Rapids. Darryl will have an administrative role, managing all programs in the areas of Education, Leadership Development, and Agronomy. He will also focus on staff development. Shelly will provide much-needed support through staff mentoring, prayer ministry (with staff, visiting teams, and Haitian communities), the development of staff and community Bible Study groups, and the support of leadership in-country. Darryl says: “This will not be easy work. Haiti is hard, and Haiti is a dark place spiritually. It is a place of great chaos. We need lots of prayers and lots of encouragement as we begin a new calling that we believe God has ordained and has prepared and equipped us for.”
