Welcome to RUF at Southern Miss. The very first RUF began at USM in the 1970s. In fact, the ministry that Mark Lowery began in Hattiesburg way back then would spread to over 140 campuses nationwide. 40+ Years later God is still at work on this campus through RUF Bible studies and fellowship opportunities week after week.
Ben grew up mostly in North Louisiana but moved to Mississippi in 1998 for college. Having now spent over half of his life in the Magnolia State and marrying a native, he considers himself it his home. Ben and Marianna were married in 2008 and moved to Hattiesburg that same week (right after seminary graduation). They have two sons Benji (2011) and Henry (2013). They love living in the Hattiesburg and Southern Miss community and would love to hear from you.
Cameron grew up in Columbia, South Carolina and attended Erskine College where he played soccer and majored in mathematics. During college Cameron became heavily involved in RUF and learned how to apply the gospel of Jesus Christ daily to his life. He cannot wait to move to Hattiesburg and cheer on The Golden Eagles. Cameron loves playing sports, reading, eating southern food, and hanging out with USM freshmen.
