Meet Our Team
Way was born and raised in Meridian, MS, and attended Ole Miss (University of Mississippi) in Oxford from '96-'00. After graduation, Way worked for three years at Christ Presbyterian Church in Oxford with Junior and Senior High. Married to Amy Davis in 2002, Way and Amy moved to Jackson, MS, to attend Reformed Theological Seminary and work with Senior High students at First Presbyterian. After graduation in May of 2007, Way and Amy moved to Louisville, KY, to begin RUF at the University of Louisville. On June 27, 2008, the Rutherfords added their first child, Miles, to the family. Exactly two years and four months later, on October 27, 2010, their second son, Davis, was born. Then almost exactly two years and four months later, on February 26, 2013, they welcomed their daughter, Lucy, to the family. The Rutherfords moved to Waco, TX, to do RUF at Baylor University in June of 2014.
Justin was born and raised in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in Spring 2022 with degrees in Psychology and Religious Studies. After joining RUF his sophomore year and finding a place deeply invested in knowing Christ, resting in His grace, celebrating His goodness, and loving others, Justin has never looked back. You will likely find him baking bread, climbing rocks, throwing the frisbee, sitting in a rocking chair cracking jokes, or aimlessly wandering around Magnolia! Justin couldn’t be more excited and humbled to participate in God’s glorious and sovereign work at Baylor!
Lauren grew up in Sheboygan, Wisconsin (also known as the Malibu of the Midwest). She graduated from Liberty University in 2023 with a major in Music and minors in Women’s Leadership and Theology. In Lauren’s freshman year, God brought the ministry of RUF into her life, and he used it to draw her to Himself, give her a community of other believers to do life with, and foster in her heart a desire to minister to others. In her free time, Lauren loves to take long walks with friends, play movie soundtracks on the piano, watch cooking shows, and attempt to bake like a baking show contestant (although her love for baking is greater than her skill). Lauren is so excited to move to Waco and join in on the work God is doing at Baylor!
