About Us

Carl and Ruth met in university and married in 1973. Carl was saved in 1975 and Ruth in 1979. After serving as a pilot and flight instructor in the Air Force, he left his childhood dream of flying to answer the Lord's call to service, studied under William MacDonald and colabored with him for six years, training men for Christ. Carl and Ruth were commended in 1981 and served under the guidance of "brother Bill" until 1986. They also took part in establishing a new assembly during this period, getting good experience for later labors as missionaries. In 1986 the Knotts were further commended to serve the Lord wherever He may lead them, initially in Spain, where they have been since then. From 1986 to 2002 they did pioneer work establishing an assembly in northern Spain in the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains. Their only furlough was for six months in 2002. In 2002 the Lord guided them clearly to Seville, to help in a small assembly in need of edification, leadership training and encouragement. Carl and Spanish brother Lucas Batalla work together in the oversight and care of the saints. The Seville assembly has a website with a menu option for English: Carl and Ruth use hospitality to reach out to both believers and unbeliever. They also visit the assembly in Gibraltar to encourage them He continues writing, translating and publishing Christian material. He travels and ministers in Central and South American assemblies on occasion. His articles appear in magazines such as Missions, Uplook and Milk & Honey. In conjunction with the Seville assembly Carl has established a publishing ministry: Editorial Berea with a web site:
