Ralph Purificato

Senior Pastor

Ralph grew up in Hamden, CT, and joined the Hamden Fire Department in 1981. Shortly after getting married in 1980, he began feeling the Lord tugging on his heart. It was during this time he desired to find out all he could about Christianity and shortly thereafter he and his wife both dedicated their lives to the Lord. As the founding pastor of Liberty in 1996, Ralph had the challenge of juggling a full-time job as a firefighter as well as a full-time pastor. It wasn’t until 2002 that Ralph retired from the fire department to devote his energy to full-time ministry. Ralph and his wife, Reyna, have three children and live in Wallingford, CT.
