RUF (Reformed University Fellowship) is a campus ministry at UAH that desires to be a community that reaches students of divergent beliefs and doubts with the message of the gospel and equips them to love and serve Jesus and his church.

RUF exists to be a rest stop for the weary and a safe place for the unconvinced. Regardless of your background or beliefs, personal convictions or deep-seated doubts, RUF is a place for you to explore the truth claims of the bible and grow in your understanding of Jesus Christ and what it means to follow Him.

Izzy Augustin

Izzy Augustin

Intern

Izzy grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, and graduated from the University of Vermont in May 2021 with her bachelor’s degree in environmental engineering. While at school she loved exploring Vermont and all that the Green Mountain State had to offer and is excited to get to know her new home state of Alabama. Some things Izzy loves most are baked goods, good books, and cozy blankets—preferably shared with friends! She is looking forward to experiencing the wonders of southern cooking, learning more about rockets, and serving the students at UAH.

Scott Moore

Intern

Scott graduated from Wheaton College (IL) in May of 2019 with his bachelor's degree in Communication. During his time at Wheaton, Scott was a member of the Men's Glee Club and performed with composer, John Nelson and Singer/songwriter, Michael W. Smith. Scott is a self-proclaimed "coffee snob" and enjoys patronizing specialty roasters from across the country. In his free time, he enjoys primping his beard, reading theology and church history and he hopes to attend seminary upon the completion of his internship with RUF. Please pray for Scott as he raises support, grows in grace, and ministers to students at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
