Heather Ruble grew up in church and that is ultimately where she met Zach. Heather is a Civil/Structural Engineer and works for a consulting firm in Springfield, MO. She is always working on some type of “new” ministry project and is driven to find ways to share the gospel with those who have never heard about Jesus. Zach Ruble is a licensed minister through the Church of God – Cleveland, Tennessee. Zach works full-time as a teacher at a therapeutic treatment facility for young boys. He has a heart for helping people and loves sharing his testimony of God’s healing power to whoever will listen. He has been preaching the message of the gospel since he was 16 years old and continues to do so across the state of Missouri. Together they own a small farm in southwest Missouri where they raise American Highland Cattle and Quarter horses. In their free time, both are avid competitors in reining and enjoy traveling to NRHA shows in the Midwest. Zach and Heather Ruble are part-time evangelists who believe in the power of the Holy Spirit and the anointing of God. Our goal is to see fellow believers and churches refueled and hungry for a move of God in their lives. We believe the people of God have lost their “first love” and have put other gods in place of the One True God. We both have jobs outside of the church and understand how many different directions one can be pulled in today’s fast-paced society. We see a trend of how the enemy uses distractions to keep people from accomplishing God’s perfect will. We succumbed to these distractions, but He caught our attention just as a loving father does. Our passion for sharing God’s word and seeing fellow believers renewed and pursuing their own destiny in Christ was catapulted after Zach’s life-threatening accident on February 23, 2014. Zach was thrown from a horse and suffered a traumatic brain injury. Three areas of his brain were damaged, which affected his fine motor skills, his ability to walk, and his thinking skills. We come to you today humbled by the amazing grace and healing power of God. God still does the impossible. God still works miracles. God’s Word is still real. God is still on the throne, and He wants to give us life more abundantly. They are now doing their Unbridled Faith Ministries show together. Check it out.

Trazz Sawyer Live on The Connection Show
January 10, 2022

Trazz Sawyer was born in Ithaca NY, however, he  grew up in Mississippi. Trazz’s parents no longer wanted him nor his siblings. Around four years old his life changed drastically. His childhood became a living nightmare for far too long until he was a young man.  He grew up and carried multiple burdens. Self-blame and eventually anger at his own powerlessness to help his sisters and himself, permeated his life.  Receiving mistreatment equal to that of a child slave for years in his abusive home left him hopeless. Trazz was fortunate to learn how to read and write, even though Trazz was unable to attend school on a regular basis. He co-authored his first book, “8 OUNCES OF WATER FOR 8 HOURS OF MAGIC”, and a second book “LITTLE ANTIFREEZE”, a children’s story. Trazz’s upcoming Autobiography, “WORSE THAN A NOBODY” depicts, how Trazz’s life was damaged and broken from his very first memory in life. Later in life, the tragedies he encountered were of his own makings. Attempting to protect his sister from an alleged abuser, and to protect himself one night, Trazz unintentionally made the worst mistake of his life by not calling the police. It is true, that most black people do not like calling the police. Trazz was no exception to this theory, and this tragic mistake would result in him spending 22-years to life in prison for murder. While in prison he suffered the worst abuses known to man. Despite his traumatic experiences, he worked diligently to transform not only his life but also his inner- being. Trazz is an incredibly talented screenwriter and is preparing to shoot his first movie titled “FIRE.” He is a singer, songwriter, musician, and a national event planner.
