Welcome to RUF at Furman! We seek to reach Furman students for Christ and equip them to serve in His Church. There are many ways to get plugged into RUF - through gathering (weekly RUF Large Group and various events throughout the year), connecting (fellowship groups with other students & meeting with David and the interns), and growing (small group Bible studies).

Kelsey was born and raised in Lawrenceville, GA and graduated from Wofford College with a degree in English, Spanish and Humanities. Kelsey has a love for reading, photography and hiking and she has a passion for music (as evidenced by the fact that one of her favorite pastimes is updating her Spotify playlists). At Wofford, RUF had a profound impact on Kelsey and her spiritual growth through the supportive and intimate community it provided her. She is excited to serve the ministry and help grow a strong Christian community at Furman, even after four years of rivalry between Furman and Wofford.
