Being Salt and Light in Brighton, MI

Jesse Ruzic

Jesse and his wife, Olivia first fell for each other in January 2012 during their first semester at Moody Bible Institute. They met because Olivia stumbled down the stairs and landed at Jesse’s feet! They married in May 2014 and graduated from Moody in December 2015. Jesse graduated with a degree in Biblical Studies and Olivia with a degree in Urban Ministry. While living in Chicago, they helped run a youth group in Chicago’s Chinatown neighborhood and worked at Inner City Impact–a community center for local teens. Jesse’s favorite pastimes include skateboarding, snowboarding, studying the Bible, and hanging out around bonfires. Olivia enjoys biking, reading/writing fiction, singing and volunteering with inner-city ministries. They share a mutual love of building relationships with teens, taking care of those in need, and having deep discussions about life and Jesus. They are grateful for the opportunity to serve at BCC and be a part of the community!
