Regardless of your beliefs or background, RUF is a community on campus where you can explore Christianity and learn about the amazing hope of the Gospel found in knowing Jesus Christ. We would love to meet you and welcome you to RUF.

RUF is a place where Christians will grow in their faith, and where those who are skeptical or curious are always invited to bring their questions and see what it looks like to know and follow Jesus alongside others at IUP.

Oliver and his wife Kim have been married for six years and both grew up in Knoxville, TN. 

They spent the last four years in Philadelphia while Oliver was working on his MDiv at Westminster Theological Seminary. Oliver was first involved with RUF as a student during his undergraduate studies at Middle Tennessee State University. While at Westminster, Oliver served as a pastoral intern with the college ministry at Tenth Presbyterian church in Philadelphia, PA, doing outreach and bible studies at colleges such as University of Pennsylvania, Drexel, and Temple. Oliver and Kim are excited for the opportunity to pioneer a new RUF at IUP alongside a new PCA church plant!
