Welcome to RUF at Colorado State! RUF Christian fellowship is a place to explore Christianity and the radical declaration of God's love. RUF exists to show the love of Jesus to the CSU community. We seek to do this through pursuing Christ together, serving others out of Christ’s love and having fun. We invite you, no matter where you are on your journey, to RUF at Colorado State.
Meet Our Team
Mike grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and went to UWM for his undergrad. Lauren is originally from the Chicago area and after earning her degree from the University of Kansas, Mike and Lauren married and moved to Charlotte where he went to seminary and completed a Masters of Divinity degree from Reformed Theological Seminary. Eventually, Mike and Lauren moved back to Milwaukee and began a new RUF chapter at his alma mater, UWM; they served there for 5 years.
Lauren and Mike are thrilled to continue serving with RUF at CSU. Together they have 3 children - William (5) and Samuel (3) and Eloise (1) who are successfully dominating their free time, destroying their furniture, and blessing them with joy beyond words. Mike and Lauren enjoy spending time with friends, drinking coffee, and traveling. On any given day you may find Lauren reading, cooking, relaxing, and shopping. Likewise, Mike is constantly active; he loves biking, skiing, cars, motorcycles, and fixing anything broken. You can ask him for help but be warned - William and Samuel will probably be tagging along.
Austin grew up in Hershey, Pennsylvania where he would regularly smell the famous chocolate being made. As a result, he has a sweet tooth for anything chocolate - especially peanut butter filled chocolate treats. Austin attended the University of Delaware where he completed a B.S. in Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation and a minor in Vocal Performance. During undergrad Austin was introduced to RUF where he formed dear friendships and learned about the beauty and truth of Scripture.
In his free time Austin enjoys riding his bike, hiking, reading, cooking, working on cars, gardening, and fixing anything that is broken. He’s excited to spend time with students at CSU enjoying the outdoors, drinking coffee, having conversations, and studying the Bible together.
