Meet Our Team
Rev. Nathan Dicks founded RUF at BU in 2014 after graduating with his MDiv from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Hamilton, MA. Nathan studied at Clemson University, planning to follow in his dad's footsteps as an architect until the financial collapse of 2008 sent him in a different direction. Realizing his love for studying and teaching the Bible to college students, he ministered at the University of Sarajevo, Bosnia for two years then moved to Boston to begin seminary. Nathan is married to Sarah and has two sons, Ward (2019) and Henry (2021). Nathan loves meeting new people, running, playing golf, anything outdoors, travel and good music. Ask him more about himself over coffee at Pavement Coffeehouse.
Serena grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania, graduated from Millersville University in 2018, and has been living in Boston and loving it ever since. She was involved in RUF while in college, and that experience grew her relationship with Jesus, understanding of Scripture, friendships, and love for ministry, all leading her to follow God’s call to ministry in Boston! She is thrilled to get to walk alongside the students of BU through their journeys of faith. Serena loves singing, playing board games with friends, trying out new coffee shops in Boston, and having deep conversations while strolling along the Charles River Esplanade.
Jimmy was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, and studied Economics and Entrepreneurship at Washington University in St. Louis where he graduated in 2021. RUF at WashU impacted him profoundly as a community of grace that showed him God's love and he feels called to serve college students. He comes from a family of five with a twin sister and older brother. As a second-generation Chinese American, he values building cross-cultural friendships and learning about other cultures. His hobbies include playing basketball or spikeball, hiking, trying new foods and restaurants, and enjoying game nights with friends. He is excited to meet students, explore Boston, and experience life in the city!
