Nick Bratcher

Campus Minister

Nick and Maddy are so excited to be serving the students of UW-Milwaukee! Nick first got involved with RUF when he was an undergraduate student at Western Kentucky University. After graduating, he served a two-year internship with RUF at Indiana University, where he fell in love with the Midwest. Then Nick earned his Master of Divinity from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis and got married to his wife Maddy. The two met at a summer camp in Black Mountain, NC but set their sights on serving the Great Up North with RUF after seminary. Providentially, God called them to UWM in 2019. Nick loves bluegrass concerts, Orangetheory Fitness, and the Minnesota Twins/Vikings. Maddy loves to cook and is a photographer by trade.
