Michael Phillips

Michael Phillips

Campus Minister

Michael is a graduate of Covenant Theological Seminary in Saint Louis, MO. He grew up in Texas and attended Belhaven University where he studied Business Administration. It was at Belhaven that he first became involved in RUF and was able to work with his follow students as a Resident Assistant in campus housing for three years. After graduating college in 2007, he went on to serve as an intern with Lagniappe Presbyterian Church on the Hurricane Katrina ravaged Gulf Coast. Michael then returned to the college context, interning with RUF at the University of Tennessee from 2008-2010. Given a free Saturday morning, you would likely find Michael running, reading, cooking, gardening, enjoying sports, and spending time with people.

Noah Kershner

Noah Kershner

Intern

Noah was born and raised in Augusta, Georgia and graduated from the University of Georgia in 2021 with a degree in Communication Studies and a minor in Religion. He married his high school sweetheart, Julia, soon afterwards! During his time with RUF at UGA, he grew in the knowledge of God's grace and felt a calling towards relational ministry. He is excited to get to know students at Georgia Tech and experience how the Lord will be at work in Atlanta! Noah loves all things Georgia football, quoting "The Office," playing a round of golf, and finding a good wing place (which he has heard the ATL has plenty of).

Jessica Mercer

Jessica Mercer

Intern

Jess is from Anderson, Indiana and is a recent graduate of Purdue University. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Sustainable Food and Farm Systems. In May of 2020 she married her best friend and RUF crush, Alex Rockhold! Jess cannot wait to serve RUF as an intern and to walk along students as they see their need for Jesus and learn more about the gospel and grace! In her free time Jess loves exploring new coffee shops, taking care of her house plants, dancing, and spending time in the great outdoors hiking, hammocking, and chasing sunsets! She is so excited to be in Atlanta and meet with the students at Georgia Tech and see how God is working in their lives and on the campus!
