The daughter of missionary parents, Dr Ruth Valerio, has been actively connected to many of the major initiatives in the charismatic renewal and social justice for most of her life.
She has been the youngest speaker at Spring Harvest (which she later chaired), a researcher at the Evangelical Alliance, and then head of its Social Responsibility department; whilst in her church life, Ruth has witnessed the birth of the 24/7 Prayer Movement.
Increasingly drawn to embedding the values of social justice, environmentalism and simple living in her own life, Ruth helped to galvanise A Rocha UK, a Christian environmental organisation, into greater influence through its Eco Church programme.
Ruth Valerio is currently Global Advocacy and Influencing Director for the international NGO Tearfund.
