Join us for food and great conversation Wednesdays at 7:30 PM in Crimson Cafe

Regardless of your beliefs or background, RUF is a community on campus where you can explore Christianity and learn about the amazing hope of the Gospel found in knowing Jesus Christ. We would love to meet you and welcome you to RUF.

RUF is a place where Christians will grow in their faith, and where those who are skeptical or curious are always invited to bring their questions and see what it looks like to know and follow Jesus alongside others at IUP.

Oliver Pierce

Campus Minister

Oliver and his wife Kim have been married for seven years and both grew up in Knoxville, TN. Their daughter, Emilia, was born in Indiana, PA August 2018.

Prior to moving to Indiana, Oliver and Kim lived in Philadelphia for several years while Oliver was working on his MDiv at Westminster Theological Seminary. While at Westminster, Oliver served as a pastoral intern with the college ministry at Tenth Presbyterian church in Philadelphia, PA, doing outreach and bible studies at colleges such as University of Pennsylvania, Drexel, and Temple. Oliver was first involved with RUF as a student during his undergraduate studies at Middle Tennessee State University. Oliver and Kim are excited for the opportunity to pioneer a new RUF at IUP alongside a new PCA church plant. They are passionate about seeing students reached for Christ and equipped to serve for a lifetime in the church!
