Meet Our Team
Nathanael grew up in the mountains of Western North Carolina, and came to know the Lord at a young age. He first got involved with RUF as a student at Appalachian State University, where he graduated in 2015. (Go 'Neers!) After serving as an intern with RUF, he felt called to vocational ministry, and attended Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte. During his final year of seminary, he served as the interim Campus Director for RUF at Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte. While attending seminary, he met his wife, Anna Kristen and they were married in July 2020.
Anna Kristen, or AK, attended Mississippi State University, where she was also very involved with RUF. She went on to serve as an intern at the University of Florida. The two are very excited to be involved with RUF for years to come, and are excited to be Georgia Southern Eagles! Hail Southern!
Matthew Berry is a graduate of Winthrop University with a Bachelor's degree in English. For the majority of his life, he was homeschooled alongside his many, many siblings. As the fifth child, he has been able to see how RUF has been a blessing in his older siblings' lives. As a student at Winthrop, RUF greatly benefited him in his faith and ability to connect with a larger community of believers.
Despite having lived in Rock Hill (Rock Thrill, as we like to call it) his whole life, Matthew is excited to move to Statesboro and serve as an intern at Georgia Southern University. Just as RUF was a blessing to him, Matthew hopes that he can be a blessing to students with his time working as an intern.
As for what he enjoys doing in his free time, the list could go on and on. Matthew enjoys spending time with any and all of his seven siblings, reading, writing, hiking, camping, playing board/card/video games, watching tv shows and movies, and eating good food. When possible, Matthew loves to be able to do all of these things with friends because he thinks life is so much better when done together. He thinks that one of the best ways to get to know people is by sitting done and playing a game with them, so he is curious to see if that will hold true once he gets to campus.
Anna Russell Earrey
Anna Russell grew up in Columbus, Mississippi, and has remained a "Mississippi Girl" at heart. She attended the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) where she majored in Mathematics and minored in Psychology, while also keeping up with her love of dance and the arts. Introduced to RUF on Anna Russell's first day of college, it stuck with her to the end, even through lapses due to the pandemic, and brought her to the Internship. She is ecstatic to be able to work with and learn from the students at Georgia Southern RUF and grateful to be a part of the ministry that has helped her and many others grow in a real relationship with the Lord. Anna Russell looks forward to exploring Statesboro and the surrounding area while fostering her other interests of travel, music, reading, flying, and film.
