Live Worship Intercession from St. Louis Missouri



“Kent introduced me to a depth of worship that was hidden within my heart in the riches of Jesus, but that I’d never heard expressed during all my years in the ex-hippy Jesus Movement in California.” – John Ruffle

Carriage House Ministries Live Worship & Intercession with Kent Henry.

Listen and be enriched with some of the intercessory worship that blesses my own life. This live session with Kent Henry was recorded just yesterday. Go to my worship page for more. Kent was very influential in my own life in the late 1970s. Kent introduced me to a depth of worship that was hidden within my heart in the riches of Jesus, but that I’d never heard expressed during all my years in the ex-hippy Jesus Movement back in California.

More than that, he personally mentored me during my St. Louis years, helping me to see who God had created me to be in Christ. Forty years on, and despite having recorded 6 Integrity-Hosanna album releases, and having shunned the earthly spotlight of fame to bask in the Light that comes from heaven, his worship today is as fresh as ever. Kent, with his beautiful wife Carla of over 40 years, have raised a wonderful family of worshippers ready for the new generation.

As a redeemed, recycled 1970s Californian Jesus Freak, John has faced too many extreme situations and sticky wickets through the years to mention here. Returning to his native England, John was actively involved in mission and outreach and taught English in a Further Education college in London until retiring in 2017. After a ten-year journey into a deeper appreciation of the historic Christianity, in 2013 John was received into the Catholic Church where he now serves in a lay capacity. Yet foundational to his faith has always been his experiences living in Gospel Outreach - an orthodox evangelical Christian commune in the USA. He is still in touch with many of his original “Jesus Freak” generation buddies. John serves as co-leader of a local Catholic Charismatic prayer group and writes to instruct and inspire. Prior to Pope Francis' election in March 2013, John accurately predicted in his personal journal that the new pope would choose either the name John or Francis. Currently, John is engaged in researching the 1967-1977 American 'Jesus People Movement' that saw tens of thousands of hippies coming to Christian discipleship through communes, coffee houses, and street outreach. He has been revitalising his ministry website at http://www.rufflemission.org throughout 2019 and is writing a devotional. John and his Filipino wife Gladdys have one boy, several stray cats that appear and disappear at will, and a growing extended family both in the UK and abroad. They make their home in Birmingham, England where they love to praise and worship Jesus. Still young at heart, John is passionate about engaging young adults in the faith, particularly though relational small groups.
