Meet Our Team

Daniel Davalos

Daniel Davalos

Campus Minister

Daniel was born in Cali, Colombia, and moved to the US when he was 7 years old. He earned his journalism degree in 2015 from the University of Georgia. During college he became involved with RUF and began to explore the depths of God's grace and the cosmic scope of Christ's work.

Daniel met his wife, Brittany, during an RUF student leadership retreat. After dating long-distance for two years, they couldn't take it anymore and finally got married in 2017. Daniel and Brittany moved to St. Louis, MO, in 2018 to study at Covenant Seminary. Brittany graduated with an MA in Counseling in 2021, and Daniel with an MDiv in 2022. They now have a needy dog, Ringo, and an adorable daughter, Lucia.

Daniel enjoys sci-fi movies, hiking, board games, and pickle ball because he's old. He's stoked to serve NMSU students by showing them the love of Jesus.

Sarah grew up in the small town of Concord, North Carolina. She moved to Little Rock, Arkansas during high school. Sarah studied Spanish & Educational Studies at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas (go frogs!). During her freshman year at TCU, Sarah joined RUF knowing she would walk away from every large group having heard of her need for Christ and His immense grace in meeting that need abundantly! Some of the highlights of her RUF experience have been one-on-ones with the interns and campus minister, Fall Conference, servant team dinners, and helping lead worship at large group.

Sarah thrived while part of the RUF community and is so grateful for the ways that the campus minister, interns, and friends have invested in her over the years. She loved hosting gatherings like football watch parties, pancake dinner, game night, Not-a-Date, and Lessons and Carols and is excited to continue hosting in her new role as the NMSU RUF intern.

Sarah enjoys watching sunsets and college football, hiking, porch-swinging, and live music. She is so excited to join the community at New Mexico State and to explore her new home with new friends!
