Churches which join the Ruach Network of Churches will benefit from numerous resources which will be made freely available. Churches will be exposed to a wealth of knowledge and experience and be able to access our useful and practical resources such as, Teaching Materials, Training Programmes, Ministry Tools, etc.
Networking Church Leaders
Churches which join the Ruach Network of Churches will have the opportunity to work together to renew, strengthen and plant churches. The Ruach Network of Churches will also provide local opportunities for Church Leaders and their Leadership Teams to:

Our Church Leaders’ Network gives members close and continuing contact with others who have the same spiritual DNA. It is the thinking of the Ruach Network of Churches that if all the imagination, dreams, energy and talents are harnessed, then together we could really contribute to changing nations.
