MEET ROSS JUTSUM
About the Ministry
In July 1997, with encouragement from Dr. Jack Hayford and other leaders in the Church, Ross founded “State of the Heart” Ministries, an inter-denominational ministry of reconciliation and renewal of life worship, dedicated to building bridges in the Body of Christ. During the past 22 years, Ross has led worship and presented concerts in 1,000 plus churches of more than 170 different denominations in over 500 cities in the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, Western Europe and Australia.
Ross’ presentations range from full weekends of praise and worship including seminars for worship leaders and interactive worship services with messages geared to worship renewal and “life worship,” to shorter testimonies in word and song. In addition to serving as a guest worship leader and speaker at worship services, Ross often brings a concert of praise to a church on a Saturday evening or Sunday afternoon or evening.
“I can't say enough what a vivid impact I believe your visit had on our Church. You brought us alive in worship and confirmed for many what we need to pursue when we gather together to offer praise to the One God. I know you fired up our worship team! You truly are that link we need as a denomination to tie us together as one big family and you link us to our brothers in other denominations.”
“The worship service you shared with us at CrossWinds Church was wonderful. If I had to pick a word to describe what we all experienced together on May 4th, the word would be 'joyful.' Thanks for being part of our community and pointing us to the joy that the Father, Son and Spirit have with each other. That joy certainly overflowed into our worship service.”
“We were privileged to have Ross Jutsum of “State of the Heart Ministries” in our church, Evangel Assembly, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. His sensitivity and gentle spirit, combined with the scripture songs that he composed and sang were well-received by all in our church. Ross led us in worship and all comments received were positive about his ministry amongst us! I am delighted to recommend him to you!”
