Ruwa Worship (pronounced roo-ah’) is defined as: to shout in joy or triumph, to raise a sound, cry out, give a blast, to shout a war-cry or alarm of battle. We are a group of musicians and worship leaders from the Fort St John area that was birthed out of the Kings Valley Christian Camp. Our mission is to carry forth the calling of John 4:23; to worship the Father in spirit and in truth. As a band we have always said that when we are preparing to lead worship we feel like we are preparing to go to war. Isaiah 42:13 says, "The Lord will go forth like a warrior, He will arouse His zeal like a man of war. He will utter a shout, yes, He will raise a war cry. He will prevail against His enemies." It's a reminder that God goes before us when we are warring in worship. He stirs up His zeal in us and raises a war cry and we follow Him and join in. He triumphs over His enemies and when we follow Him going to war in worship, we triumph over the enemy too. From the moment we engage in worship, we are lifting up our Ruwa!

Growing up with an alcoholic, abusive father, Cliff understands the identity issues that impacted his self esteem, self worth and self confidence for many years by healing through stored emotional trauma and unhealthy core beliefs.
Months of counselling and reading, about emotional immaturity and health, was life alteringas his EQ and compassion for others flourished. Having been a high school drop-out, Cliff made the decision to return to school and college at the age of 27 and chose a career path of serving others as a youth worker/counsellor for 9 years, leading as a local church pastor for 18 years and another 14 years as an associate pastor of pastoral care, counselling & seniors care.
While one cannot change the events of the past, Cliff believes that one can change how one feels about them and find a new way to remember them. With Cliff's personable approach, people feel at ease with him and he has counselled hundreds of people and has been honoured to be part of many weddings, family blessings and end of life ceremonies.
As an avid reader on many subjects in human phycology, desire/beliefs/behaviour, Cliff's interests are core to healthy life and relationships. His hobbies involve classic cars, tools and working with a group of guys to fix used vehicles as a ministry to those in need.
He and his wife Marilyn have three adult children, and are blessed with four grandchildren.
