RUF is a Christian ministry at Rhodes College.
All Rhodes students are welcome regardless of personal or religious background. We welcome the "convinced" and the "unconvinced" and invite all students, not matter who they are, to RUF.
We want RUF to be a place where a student can come with questions, find fellowship with others, worship God, serve others, and grow in their knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ and His work on their behalf.
John Craft grew up in Memphis, TN. After graduating from Vanderbilt University, where he studied philosophy and film studies, he moved to Athens, GA to complete a two year internship with RUF at the University of Georgia. While doing intern training, he met his wife Leigh, who was an RUF intern at Winthrop University. After they got married, John and Leigh moved to St. Louis, MO to attend Covenant Theological Seminary. After graduating and doing some college ministry in St. Louis, John and Leigh moved to Chattanooga in 2007 to do RUF @ UTC. Now having moved back to Memphis, they are both excited to be serving with RUF @ Rhodes College. John and Leigh have two children, William and Lizzie.
