  1. We love strong, short names. Our prayer is that he lives up to his namesake as a generous provider to many.

  2. We chose Boaz because we live God’s Word, the Bible. Boaz is a man from the book of Ruth in the Bible. He r deemed Ruth by marrying her after her husband died. He married her even though she was not an Israelite and had been married before. But he hinir d God by redeeming the family of Ruth’s husband who had died by ensuring that his family continued through him. The line of king David and eventually Jesus Christ comes through Ruth and Boaz. We love Jesus’s redemption and have put our eternal hope in Him so we love the story of Ruth and Boaz because our salvation in part comes because of them.

  3. Boaz is from the bible. He is the man ruth waited for from God.
