The story behind Ransom Ministries


The Armbrusters
Founders of Ransom Ministries

Ransom Ministries was founded in 2010 by Matt and Tara Armbruster after they attended a Bible study urging Christians to stop playing church and start living a life of true faith and dependence on God.


The Armbrusters asked God to show them how they could use the gifts He had given them to bring glory to Him. God gave Matt the idea of a café where anyone could get a hot meal and pay whatever they could afford and Tara the word “ransom” with the scripture Matthew 20:28. When they began to dissect this verse, they discovered the Greek word that is translated “to serve” actually means “one that waits on tables,” and “ransom” meant “to liberate many from misery.” They opened the first Ransom Café in October of 2010 at the Hangar of West Mobile Baptist Church.

Matt is available for speaking engagements, events, conferences, and retreat session leadership.
