Clare Looney Knudsen
Clare is from Athens, Georgia and graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Human Development. During her time in college and especially at UGA's RUF, God made it clear to her that he loves to use broken people to further his Kingdom. Because of this and the encouragement of others, she decided to become an RUF intern to share the good news of God’s love and truth with others. After graduation, she married her husband Bradley and jumped straight into the RUF internship. She loves true crime, lasagna, Twin Peaks, and hanging out with all the weirdos. She is so excited to spend time with the students in Savannah!
Sarah grew up in Fredericksburg, Texas and graduated from SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) with a BFA in Industrial Design. Focusing on humanitarian needs and solving meaningful problems in her design work, God opened the door to the RUF internship for Sarah to serve at SCAD. Throughout her life, Sarah has seen God’s strength made perfect in her own weakness and His Sovereignty reign over every single aspect of life. Sarah and her service dog Texico have lived in 3 different states and 4 different cities together, but nothing has compared to the community they’ve found with RUF at SCAD and IPC in Savannah, Georgia. Sarah is looking forward to re-joining the SCAD community as an Alumna and RUF intern.
