Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) is the campus ministry of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). Though we exist on campus through the PCA, you will find students from a wide variety of backgrounds here at Belhaven University, because we welcome students from any and all walks of life. We are here for the "convinced" and the "unconvinced." It is our aim to reach students for Christ and equip them to serve in His church in all their various callings and vocations.

Bentley has been married to his wife, Sarah Love, for over 10 years. They have four children that keep them on their toes: Lila Grace, Annie, Luke, and Camp. Bentley is originally from Meridian, MS and Sarah Love from Jackson, MS. Both of them graduated from the University of Mississippi in 2006 and 2007 where they both met and each came to understand the gospel in a saving way due in large part to the campus ministries they attended and the Christian friends they knew. This ignited a passion in them for ministry to college students which led them to work with CRU for three years - one year at Ole Miss and then two years abroad in Salerno, Italy. From there, Bentley went on to work for three years as a pastoral intern at Palm Vista Community Church in Miami, FL before returning back to Jackson in 2014 to attend Reformed Theological Seminary, from which he graduated in 2017 with his Masters of Divinity Degree. Through these experiences, the Lord has built in Bentley a passion for the gospel of Jesus Christ, a desire to minister God's powerful word, a love for people, and a heart for the local Church. As a result, he couldn't be happier to be serving with RUF and he sincerely believes that RUF at Belhaven is an incredibly important work.
Ashley Broom was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, and after graduating high school, she moved to Oxford, Mississippi where she studied Secondary Education:English at Ole Miss. Ashley recalls the beginning of her freshman year at Ole Miss as being very lonely, but through the love and support of her RUF intern she was able to find community through the ministry of RUF. RUF helped Ashley thrive in college, and she is so excited to be able to help others the way her intern helped her! Ashley deeply believes that RUF is a place where students can experience glimpses of eternity and the love of Jesus through the teaching, preaching, and fellowship of RUF.
Jackson Lin is married to his wife, Michaela Lynn. They have been married for a year. Jackson was originally born and raised as a Christian in Taiwan. However, he did not come to faith until his high school years in Oregon. During his time at Belhaven, the assuring hope of the gospel was made clear to him more and more each day through the ministry of RUF. During his time at RUF and Belhaven Biblical Studies department, he felt his sense of calling into teaching the Word of God. He often finds himself contemplating the best way to commend and defend the gospel. He desires to use his gifts to present the realness of God's word and the gospel as RUF and Belhaven had done so to him. To him, RUF has become a place of resting in the comfort and conviction of the gospel for students, especially during their overwhelming uncertainties in school. He is looking forward to being a part of this ministry that has been faithfully teaching the Word of God and clearly presenting the gospel. Currently, Jackson is also about to begin his third year at Reformed Theological Seminary. On another note, Jackson finds much joy in hanging out with friends, fishing, playing board games and video games, and rooting for the Beavs!
