Premier playwright and film director, John Ruffin is a native Chicagoan. He was born on July 3, 1971, and began his career at the early age of twelve, directing a play consisting of his two brothers and two sisters and his parents for an audience.  Having a natural love for the performing arts, Ruffin went on to gain a lead role in a children's play, "The Emperor's New Clothes" and "Aladdin" at Thornton High School in Harvey, Illinois.

While in college, Ruffin took courses in theater. After attending play after play, Ruffin decided to step out on faith and in 1993, he wrote, directed and produced his first play, "Choose Ye This Day!," thus starting his own company by the name of AGAPE Productions, Inc and John Ruffin Productions, Inc.  He says, "There was a time where the set actually fell during a performance, but that did not stop the anointing that God set in the room and ten people got saved. It was then that I knew then that I was headed in the right direction." After each performance, the number of people coming to Christ grew.  It is Ruffin's belief that a play doesn't mean a thing unless the anointing is there and lives are changed.

 Recently, Ruffin has also received an Honorary Doctorate Degree in Fine Arts.

Ruffin showcased his God-given writing skills of Gospel hit Stage Plays, "Love Me and Leave Me" and “The Other Woman”,  “All for Love” and “No More Sheets”, “Mr. Right Now or Mr. Wrong Later”,  all which have sold out across the
