RUF: College of Charleston
 

Thanks so much for your interest in RUF at College of Charleston! The Clark family has been privileged to be a part of this ministry at CofC for ten years now, and have been delighted to see their students and RUF's influence on campus grow. We are just as excited as ever to meet new freshmen and transfers, and our students equally look forward to it.

RUF offers small groups, social events, service projects, opportunities for one-on-one discipleship, and a weekly large group that includes worship. Our tagline is "A Place for People in Process...to Process", because we strive to be a community that respectfully meets people where they are in life. We'd love to get to know you and see how we might serve you.

Collectively, the Clarks enjoy studying and discussing culture, world views, art, and movies. Aspa is a voracious reader of fiction, expert in all things Trader Joe's, and lover of practical advice. Coleman (13 y/o) is passionate about many things: Science, Math, History Tennis, Basketball, Football, Golf, Minecraft, Pokemon, Merlin (BBC show), hip-hop dance moves, and finding loopholes for every argument you present.

Savannah Shelby was born and raised in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Later she attended the College of Charleston where she majored in vocal performance (opera). It was through RUF that Savannah developed a heart for ministry and for people who feel unseen and alone. Through the community of RUF and the mentorship of her campus minister, Danny, Savannah discovered gifts for the first time that led to her consider campus ministry as a vocation. After serving three years as an intern at the University of Central Florida, Savannah will begin her first year as Campus Staff at the College of Charleston in 2018. Savannah has had the opportunity to minister to students on campus through discipleship opportunities, bible studies, giving talks, and has even used her vocal performance degree to serve on worship team. 

Savannah loves reading, Netflix, going to Universal with her roommates, the beach, good food, hiking (when it’s not scorching outside), singing, Halloween, dance parties, Razorback football, and Mary-Kate and Ashley.
