Join us on Monday nights from 8-9 pm in Dudley B6
Welcome to RUF at Auburn! RUF is a community of students on Auburn's campus that takes God's word seriously and we take following Jesus seriously, but we don't take ourselves too seriously. As an organization we strive to embody the lived graciousness of the Gospel proclaimed by Jesus Christ and his disciples. We want to be a place where any Auburn student from any walk of life can feel a sense of belonging and experience what it's like to be loved by God and his people.
Meet Our Team
The Crums have been serving with RUF at Auburn since 2019 (from left to right: Kelsey, Spender (3), Tanner, Heston (1). 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, SC 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!
Lucy grew up in Memphis, Tennessee, and she graduated from the University of Mississippi with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. From her first time at RUF freshman year, she was drawn to the intentionality and encouragement of the RUF community. Lucy is beyond excited to meet the students at Auburn and continue seeing the ways that God is at work!
Chris was born in West Point, Georgia, right down the road from Auburn, but grew up in Chattanooga, Tennessee. After high school, he graduated college from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville with a major in Finance and minor in Leadership. RUF had a major impact on his walk with the Lord during his time in college and he got to serve on the leadership team for his last three years. He likes spending time outside, whether its playing pickleball, running, or just anything that keeps him active with his friends. In his spare time, he enjoys reading and listening to the Avett Brothers. Chris is so excited to move to Auburn and get to know all of the students there!
