Welcome to RUF at Meredith! We are a community learning about the love of Jesus for us and how it calls us to love others. In RUF we do not think any of us has it all together, and so we all need to hear the good news that God has provided Jesus to bring healing and restoration to broken people. To help people learn about Jesus, we provide opportunities to learn what the Bible teaches and put it into practice in our everyday lives. In RUF, we think the gospel must be understood if it is to impact our life, and it must be lived out to be truly understood. Feel free to contact us if we can help you!
Various small groups meet on campus at Meredith throughout the week. Contact Amy for locations and times.
Chuck Askew is the campus minister for Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) at North Carolina State University and Meredith College. Chuck is originally from Atlanta, Georgia, but became involved with RUF in his time at the University of Florida and spent 2 years as an intern with RUF at Mississippi State. After those two years, Chuck went to Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson to get a Masters of Divinity. While there, he met his lovely wife Lauren, originally from Syracuse, New York, who was in the Marriage and Family Therapy program of RTS. After graduating in 2005, Chuck and Lauren moved to Conway, South Carolina to start the RUF at Coastal Carolina University (CCU). After four years at CCU, Chuck was called to serve as the RUF campus minister at North Carolina State University and has been happily serving students here since 2009. Lauren and Chuck have three children, Charlie, Norah and Sam.
Amy is a graduate of Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, GA where she received her degree in Middle Grades Education. After teaching in Birmingham, AL for a few years, she taught missionary kids in rural western Uganda with World Harvest Mission (now Serge). In 2011, Amy joined RUF and worked with RUF at Samford University for three years. In 2014, she moved to Raleigh to begin RUF at Meredith College. Amy has a love for many things in her life which include cooking of almost any sort, assorted podcast listening, entertaining at home with friends, reading as much as possible and recently... CROCHET! Some of her favorites are her dog Jasper, being outside with the neighbors, planting and caring for the flower beds in the yard, and watching quirky films. Amy is grateful for the beautiful women of Meredith College and considers it a great privilege to be a part of God's work on that campus!
