Tory Ruark

Chief Operations Officer, Standards of Excellence in Short-term Mission

Tory went on his first short-term mission (STM) trip as a freshman in college and it turned his world upside down. In 2004, Tory began leading and training STM teams with DELTA Ministries and became COO of Standards of Excellence (SOE) in 2016. He’s served in Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, Ecuador, Haiti, Zimbabwe, and Italy and mobilized teams to many other countries. Tory’s Master of Divinity from Western Seminary mixed with practical experience in the STM world as a team leader, mobilizer, trainer, and pastor allows him to bring insight that’s both biblical and practical.
