University of Mississippi

Join us Wednesdays at 7:30pm at Paris-Yates Chapel on campus

Welcome to RUF Ole Miss. We are a campus ministry of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) that welcomes students from any and all walks of life. Students from a wide variety of church and religious backgrounds are involved here at Ole Miss. We are here for the "convinced" and the "unconvinced."

Our ministry is centered upon the person and work of Christ. We believe the Christian life is not primarily about what we do, but rather who we are. RUF is focused on helping students learn to live all of life in light of God's Word and his work on their behalf.

God created us to live in relationship with himself and our fellow man. Unfortunately sin has wrecked our lives and relationships. It is our desire to help students understand and apply the redemptive work of God in their lives. We want to show students how they are to live in relationship with God and one another.

Aidan was born and raised around Jackson, MS and graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in Microbiology and a minor in Modern Greek Language. He and his wife, Sarah, met at RUF Alabama through a small group Bible study on the book of Daniel. Aidan loves watching football with others, playing and listening to music, and date nights with his wife! God has worked immensely and perpetually in the lives of Sarah and Aidan through RUF, bringing them closer to Him through Christian fellowship, ministry opportunities, sound teaching, and more. They are excited to move to Oxford to see what God has in store for them these next few years!

Caroline grew up in Nashville, TN, and graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Elementary Education. RUF played a huge role in her time at Auburn by providing incredible friendships and strengthening her faith. Caroline loves music, running, her friends and family (and her dog Lucy), cooking (especially Mexican food), and she is always down for a dance party! She is so excited to build relationships with the students at Ole Miss and see how the Lord will work!
