We are glad you are here! RUF International's purpose is to serve all international students at Northwestern University. We are on campus to welcome you and provide you with opportunities to make new friends and learn about Christianity during your time in the United States.
Ian and Hanna married during his time at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, MS. During their time in Jackson, they planted an RUF International among the students at Mississippi College. While serving with RUF International, both Ian and Hanna were convinced that serving internationals was the best job in the world, so upon graduation, they moved to Evanston, IL to plant an RUF-I at Northwestern University and serve there full-time. Ian enjoys good movies, good books, and being a mediocre basketball player.
Hanna and Ian met through RUF as students and fell in love with international ministry in college. Hanna studied accounting in undergrad, got an MBA, and audited some RTS classes for fun while Ian was in seminary. They were married in May of 2015 and the following month planted a RUF International at Mississippi College while Ian was finishing up seminary at RTS Jackson. They moved to Evanston, IL in 2017 to plant a RUF International at Northwestern University. Hanna loves to travel, considers herself a foodie, and was an international student herself in South Korea.
