Kay & Jack Rudd

Kay RuddAfter serving as missionaries for fifteen years in the South Pacific regions of New Zealand and Vanuatu in educational ministry, we are now living in Sandy and working with The Vine Institute, www.vine-institute.org. Our mission is to connect, educate and celebrate many cultures in Christ who currently live in the Salt Lake Valley as refugees and immigrants. This growing group represents over 50 nations and 120 languages some of whom come from a Christian background and have not connected with a church during their difficult resettlement here in the USA. We are thankful to be back with our children and grandchildren and use our cross cultural experiences among people of many nations.
