Join us each Monday for Large Group at 8 PM in Dudley B6 Auditorium
RUF has been on Auburn's campus since 1988. We seek to reach students for Christ and equip them to serve in God's Kingdom. Come check us out!
Meet Our Team
Tanner, Kelsey and Spender Crum come from Greenville, South Carolina. Tanner and Kelsey went to the University of South Carolina where they were first introduced to RUF as students. After college, they moved to Greenville and Tanner worked as an RUF intern at Furman University. In 2015, Tanner began his seminary career at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte where he received his M.Div. and Kelsey founded a mobile dance outreach non-profit organization called Carolina Dance Collaborative. During his time in seminary, Tanner worked at Downtown Presbyterian Church, Grace and Peace Presbyterian Church and was an Interim Campus Minister at Wofford College. Needless to say, they love RUF and are excited to be a part of the work God is doing at Auburn!
Emma Kate Ballinger
Emma Kate Ballinger is originally from Clemson, South Carolina, but has grown up in Lilburn, Georgia for most of her life. She graduated from Georgia Southern University, with a Communication Studies major and a minor in Psychology. Emma Kate loves sweet people, good food, and good music, preferably all together! Being a Georgia girl through and through, she is excited to adventure to Auburn University and get to know and love the students in Alabama!
Jeffrey was born and raised in Cincinnati, OH. After high school, he attended the University of South Carolina where he obtained a Marketing degree with a minor in Sport and Entertainment Management. He is an avid fan of Cincinnati sports (despite the lack of recent success) and will most likely tell you about the blessing of Skyline Chili. He enjoys sports, reading, and Skyline Chili (you'll learn). Jeffrey is excited for the next few years and looks forward to getting to know the students down at Auburn University!
