Welcome to RUF at the University of South Florida! My name is Andrew Newman and I am the campus minister. As the campus minister I want to welcome you to RUF at USF. We seek to know and share the love of God that is found in Jesus Christ. We desire to have a safe and welcoming fellowship of students who can experience a relationship with God and share the good news that is found in God's Word. We love to have students of various backgrounds. Wether you consider yourself a skeptic, believer or seeker we would love for you to come check us out! We have both weekly large group meetings and small group bible studies. We hope to see you soon! Go Bulls!
Andrew Newman was born and raised in the great city of Greensboro, NC. He is a graduate of NC State University. Upon graduation he did a 2 year internship with RUF at Rhodes College in Memphis, TN. During the internship he married his amazing wife, Meghan. They loved their time in Memphis immersing themselves in the local culture of BIues and BBQ. It was in his last years of college at NC State and his experience as an RUF intern that he gained a love and passion for ministry and a desire to work with college students. After the internship they moved to Charlotte, NC to attend seminary. To make things interesting Andrew and Meghan had a beautiful little boy in their second year of seminary. Their son Knox was born in March 2015. Even though they have loved their time in Memphis and Charlotte they love the city of Tampa and are so thankful they get to serve the campus of USF!
