RUF is a place for the convinced and the unconvinced, the churched and un-churched, the burned, the bored, the run-down, or the refreshed. It is a place to bring your doubts and your questions to understand more about Christianity and what the radical love of Jesus is all about. No matter who you are or what you believe you are welcome to join us as we gather to love God, to love people, and to love the University of Houston.

Meet Our Team
Brooks was born in Texas (woo!) and grew up in Nashville, TN. During his first year at the University of Tennessee he met his one-day-wife Meredith. Brooks came to college as a new Christian seeking answers and Meredith came to college looking for a good community. They found both in RUF.
After they graduated, they got married and moved to Nashville, TN for Brooks to work as an intern with RUF at Vanderbilt University. After three years they moved to St. Louis, MO for Brooks to get a pastoral degree from Covenant Theological Seminary and for Meredith to style hair. After four years they moved to begin work with RUF at the University of Houston. In November 2018 they had their first baby girl, Sophie (who is the cutest creature on earth).
Meredith loves cupcakes, currently binge-watches One Tree Hill, is an avid reader, knows more about football than her husband, and has an artsy flair when it comes to design.
Brooks loves Harry Potter and dorky books, currently binge watches Friday Night Lights with Meredith, wants to be a super hero, can be found either in a gym or in a coffee shop, and would befriend a brick wall if he could.
Kimmy grew up in Tulsa, OK, and moved down to Houston, TX in 2016. She attended the University of Houston where she studied history and began her love for learning who people are and why they are that way. She found RUF during her freshman year of college and truly believes that's where she began to understand the gospel and God spoke into her life, changing her forever. She had the privilege of serving in RUF all four years of college as "name-tag-girl" and as a women's Bible study leader. She loved it so much that she decided to stay as an RUF Intern for two years before transitioning to Campus Staff. She has enjoyed walking alongside students as they discuss scripture, learn what following Jesus entails, and share with one another some of the beautiful and hard things about life. When she's not meeting with students, you can find her drinking iced coffee, where the baristas on UH's campus know her order by heart. Other than her cat named Beans, she loves spending time with friends and will jump at any opportunity to spend quality time with others.
Joshua was born and raised in Othello, Washington, and moved to Lexington, Virginia in 2018 to attend Washington and Lee University (W&L). While at W&L he became involved with RUF as a Small Group leader, played an excessive amount of volleyball, and occasionally went to class. In May of 2022, Joshua graduated with a degree in Business and Latin American Studies. Because of the profound impact that RUF's community had upon him, he decided to further serve the organization by becoming a RUF Intern. Joshua is excited about serving the Lord in a new (warmer) environment, hosting Bible studies and game nights, growing spiritually, and exploring the city of Houston with students. Some of his interests include Marvel movies, spikeball, tennis, Smash Bros, and hiking.
