North Carolina State University
Join us on Tuesday Nights @ 7:30PM in Withers Hall 232A
Go Pack and welcome to RUF at NC State! We are a community learning about the love of Jesus for us and how it calls us to love others. We welcome students from all walks of life, regardless of where they are spiritually. In RUF, we do not think any of us has it all together, and so we all need to hear the good news that God has provided Jesus to bring healing and restoration to broken people.
To help people learn about Jesus, we provide opportunities to learn what the Bible teaches and put it into practice in our everyday lives. In RUF, we think the gospel must be understood if it is to impact our life, and it must be lived out to be truly understood. Feel free to contact us if we can help you!
Meet Our Team
Chuck Askew is the campus minister for Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) at North Carolina State University and Meredith College. Chuck is originally from Atlanta, Georgia, but became involved with RUF in his time at the University of Florida and spent 2 years as an intern with RUF at Mississippi State. After those two years, Chuck went to Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson to get a Masters of Divinity. While there, he met his lovely wife Lauren, originally from Syracuse, New York, who was in the Marriage and Family Therapy program of RTS. After graduating in 2005, Chuck and Lauren moved to Conway, South Carolina to start the RUF at Coastal Carolina University (CCU). After four years at CCU, Chuck was called to serve as the RUF campus minister at North Carolina State University and has been happily serving students here since 2009. Lauren and Chuck have three children, Charlie, Norah and Sam.
Grace is from Decatur, Alabama and graduated from Mississippi State University with a degree in Special Education. Growing up in the church, RUF was a natural next step once Grace got to college, and it became a big part of her college experience both spiritually and relationally. Reach out to Grace if you ever want to go on a walk outside, catch up over a cup of tea, or scream sing Taylor Swift. She also loves to talk about her current read and all things baseball (Go Braves!). Grace is excited to move her and her cowbell collection to Raleigh this fall!
Henry grew up in Nashville, Tennessee, and graduated from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville with a major in Religious Studies and was blessed to be a part of the RUF community at UT all 4 years. God used RUF in Henry’s life to remind him that he has a great need for a Savior and a great Savior for his need, and he is excited to join the RUF community at NC State. Henry loves Chipotle, the Beatles, and books that include any of the following: theology, existentialism, or hobbits. He can’t wait to move to Raleigh to convince everyone that Goodreads is the greatest social media app, and more importantly, by God’s grace, to remind students at NC State of the beauty found in Christ.
