Minister to Children
Ruth DuCharme has served as Minister to Children at Highland Hills Baptist Church since May of 1995. She is married to Cass DuCharme, the Associate Pastor of Highland Hills Baptist Church. They have one daughter, Caitlyn, a Senior at Mercer University and Chase, a freshman at Georgia College and State University.
Ruth was born and raised in Newnan, Georgia, around her family's barbecue restaurant, Sprayberry’s BBQ. She is a graduate of Tift College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Church Music and of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary with a Masters in Church Music degree. She was ordained to the ministry by Highland Hills in August of 2002.
Other professional involvements for Ruth include writing the children’s Sunday School curriculum for Highland Hills, writing the children’s portion of the Annual Bible Study curriculum for Smyth and Helwys Publishing, and teaching private guitar lessons.
Outside of her professional involvement, Ruth enjoys playing tennis, reading good books, being involved in her children’s schools, attending sporting events (particularly Georgia Tech), and music.
Ministering to the children of Highland Hills is a fun and rewarding ministry. Children are not only the future of the church—they are the present. They bring life and enthusiasm to this fellowship and a hope that Highland Hills Baptist Church will always be a place that honors God through worship and service.
