Thanks so much for your interest in RUF at College of Charleston!

We seek to be a community where the convinced and unconvinced can explore the claims of Jesus and enter into his story together.

Get involved with us through: small groups, social events, service projects, opportunities for one-on-one discipleship, and a weekly large group that includes worship. We'd love to get to know you and see how we might serve you.

Meet Our Team

Jacob Lee

Jacob Lee

Campus Minister

Jacob was born in Philadelphia (Trust the Process) and raised in Chesapeake, Virginia. He attended the University of Virginia and then worked for RUF at VCU. For three years he worked with students at VCU and developed a love for relational ministry. During this time, he met his beautiful wife Allison. They were married for his last year of RUF in Richmond and moved to St. Louis to begin at Covenant Seminary. Allison worked as a Physical Education Teacher in the city of St. Louis and helped to support Jacob as he attended school. All three of their children were born in St. Louis but are thriving as Lowcountry transplants: Hewitt ('17), Annie Drew ('19) and Salem ('21). Allison and Jacob are thrilled to be with RUF at the College of Charleston.

Allison and Jacob love to cook and eat food and can't wait to share this passion with college students at CofC.

EllaCait Downs


EllaCait was born and raised in Southern California, but moved across the country to attend the University of South Carolina for college. There she graduated with a B.A. in Public Health and minors in dance and psychology. RUF greatly shaped and impacted her college experience and really helped her navigate the ups and downs of those four years. She loves the beach, new coffee shops, Italian food, South Carolina football (Go Cocks!), and anything active. She is thrilled to continue her journey with RUF by moving to Charleston, and looks forward to loving on and encouraging the students at CofC!
