Columbus State University
Welcome to RUF at Columbus State! We are excited to begin in the fall of 2022. We seek to be a community of students on campus seeking to love God and love our neighbor. Our goal is to help CSU students come to understand, know, and follow Jesus Christ as they walk through their college years, and to lay a foundation for a lifetime of following Jesus and serving him in all areas of life.
Jesus said that he did not come to save the righteous, but sinners. At RUF, we do not wish to pretend to have it all together. We are people in need of grace. Consequently, all are welcome to be part of our group, regardless of personal or religious background. RUF exists for the "convinced" and the "unconvinced," the lost, the found, the burned, bored, cynical, or spiritual. Whoever you are and whatever your story, RUF at CSU exists for you.
Meet Our Team
Tim and Anna are excited to begin the new work at Columbus State with RUF. Tim was born and raised in Huntsville, Alabama, and attended Mississippi State University where he was first introduced to RUF. Tim and Anna both served as RUF interns, which is actually where they first met and started dating. Anna grew up in Hickory, North Carolina, and graduated from Appalachian State University. Tim has spent the last five years working with students at Faith Presbyterian Church in Brookhaven, Mississippi, while attending Reformed Theological Seminary. Their daughter, Faye, was born in 2021 and has the biggest personality of them all. Tim enjoys good music, any kind of grilled meat, and taking his big dumb dog for a walk.
