Welcome to RUF at Erskine! Since 2002 the Patricks have been providing and hosting opportunities for Gospel ministry and pastoral care for students at Erskine College. We'd love for you to join us for our Sunday night cookout and fellowship at the Barn, where we have our weekly large group fellowship for Bible study and singing, or to have you visit a small group on our patio, to to meet with you over lunch or coffee!
Paul and his wife Marie and their 4 children (Hamilton, Savannah, Palmer and Reece) have been in Due West hosting students for weekly ministry events since Paul began to serve at Erskine in 2002.
Josh is from Birmingham, Alabama where he graduated with a degree in Business Finance from Samford University. He discovered his passion for ministry through his time with RUF, and is very excited to be serving on Erskine's campus under Paul Patrick. He loves to read, write, hike, and play disc golf, and he has an intense love for Switchfoot, Relient K, J.R.R Tolkien, and C.S. Lewis. He hopes to pursue full-time ministry as a career, and is excited for his first steps in this direction with the RUF internship.
