Regardless of your beliefs or doubts, RUF at Davidson is a place for you to explore Christianity and grow in your understanding of who Jesus is and what it means to follow him in community with others. This community happens weekly through large group meetings, small groups, and individual meetings with fellow students, intern, or the campus minister over coffee or lunch.

Madison Drury was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, where she grew up in a Christian family and attended private Christian schools all the way through high school. Growing up in the PCA, she planned on attending RUF when she got to college, but she never could have imagined just how much this ministry could have changed, challenged, and encouraged her. Madison went to undergrad at The University of Alabama (roll tide) and graduated in May, 2017, with a dual degree in Psychology and Interdisciplinary Studies focused on Community Engagement and Nonprofit Management. A few of Madison’s great loves include coffee, chocolate, food (growing it, cooking it, & of course eating it), reading, and exploring new places. She is so excited to get to be an RUF Intern at Davidson College!
