Welcome! RUF is a Christian ministry for the U of A campus. With so many choices and possibilities, college is an exciting time, but it can also be lonely. RUF seeks to provide a safe place for students to be themselves and find community. Whether struggling with doubt or seeking to grow in their relationship with God, RUF helps you navigate what it means to follow Jesus faithfully at a fun, large, SEC school like the U of A. I'm here to help you do that and I want to get to know you! Please email if you have any questions! mike.ford@ruf.org

Mike Ford

Mike is a graduate of Covenant Theological Seminary (MDiv). Before that, he played football at Wheaton College for two years, broke his ankle, and transferred to the University of Missouri where he played (intramural) football for three more years. While at Mizzou, he met and married his sweet wife, Deanna. Mike and Deanna have three children: Luke (4), Eleanor (2), and Peter (1) – each of whom looks eerily similar to the other. Mike loves reading George MacDonald and Russian authors, eating bacon, and secretly enjoys the movie Frozen. You'll find him drinking coffee at Puritan Brew Co. or having lunch at Brough. Team Ford enjoys hot coffee (emphasis on "hot" people), eating dinner, going on walks after dinner, doing anything outdoors and writing bios in the third person.
