What is RUF?
RUF is a campus ministry at Millersville University. Our goal is to be a group where people are welcome to find out what the Bible says about who Jesus is. People do some of their best learning in the context of relationships and through conversation. It doesn't matter if you are a Christian who has been going to church all your life or a skeptic who just isn't sure what to believe. We invite and welcome you to come ask questions and make new friends.
Trip has been the Campus Minister at Millersville for 5 years. He bounces between being a nerd and a jock. He loves comic books and table top games. But he also plays soccer and loves all the Baltimore sports teams!
Joy has been a full time mom, part time volunteer in ministry since she and Trip married in 1999. She has worked with middle school, high school and college students, in women’s ministry and peacemaking. She is currently pursuing her certification in Christian Conciliation.
She has the incredible ability to get lost in Target, Whole Foods and any town she’s ever visited (or lives in). She loves reading, hanging out with students, making her 3 kids laugh hysterically and soy chai lattes.
She and Trip have been in Lancaster, PA with RUF since 2013.
Matt loves camping, running, reading, and watching movies. Raised in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, Matt attended Penn State and studied communications. Although he was raised in a Christian home, he first fell in love with Christian community during his first year of college. Through RUF, Matt grew in his love of Scripture, prayer, and service, while learning alongside friends and mentors what it looks like to pursue Christ in all things. As an intern, Matt is excited to share the love of Christ with the students of Millersville and watch God grow the community there. After the internship, he plans to attend seminary and later become a campus minister.

What does RUF believe?
In all that we do on campus, RUF seeks to be honest. We don’t assume a “generic Christianity,” but sincerely embrace the system of doctrine set down in a historical document called The Westminster Confession of Faith. This also means that we are open about our affiliation. RUF is the official campus ministry of the Presbyterian Church in America.
