We are so excited to be with RUF at Carson-Newman! My name is Chandler, my wife's name is Leah, and we have one son named Judson. I'm originally from Brandon, Mississippi, went to Ole Miss, and met Leah while I was in seminary at RTS in Jackson. She's originally from Laurel and went to Belhaven University in Jackson, Mississippi. We got married June 1, 2013, and Judson was born May 14, 2018. We've lived in Brookhaven, Mississippi; Tuscaloosa, Alabama; and are excited to now be in Jefferson City.
