The DP said he would not back down from playing his role as both a political and Christian leader in the efforts to build churches.
Speaking during the Global Leadership Summit at Christ is the Answer Church, Valley Road, Mr Ruto urged the faithful to ignore those who are opposed to such initiatives.
“I urge you to ignore those who are opposed to building the church,” said Ruto.
