Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) is a campus ministry at MTSU for MTSU. Regardless of your beliefs or doubts, RUF is a community where you can explore who Jesus is and grow in your understanding of what it means to follow him.
Weston was born and raised in Knoxville, TN, and attended the University of Tennessee, where he fell in love with two things: RUF and his wife Hannah, a Nashville native. After graduating from UTK in 2012, the two married and moved to Memphis, TN, where Weston worked as an RUF intern at Rhodes College while Hannah worked as a commercial interior designer. From 2015-2018, Weston and Hannah lived in St. Louis, MO, where Weston attended Covenant Theological seminary. They are excited to be back in the great state of Tennessee, serving in the ministry they love so much.
Matthew has lived in the Nashville area all of his life. He grew up in Nolensville, TN and lived there for 11 years before moving to Murfreesboro, TN to attend MTSU for undergraduate studies. He graduated from Middle Tennessee State University in May of 2014 with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Organizational Communication. During this time at MTSU, Matt met his future wife, Lydia. They got married in July of 2014 in Murfreesboro, TN. After being married, Matthew applied for the RUF Internship to serve the campus of MTSU.
When Matt isn't at home or on campus, you can usually find him at sporting events, catching a Dave Matthews Band concert, or playing sports around the Murfreesboro area. After completing the internship, he hopes to attend seminary at RTS Charlotte and become a campus minister.
Lydia is getting a degree in Comprehensive Special Education and hopes to become a teacher in that field. She grew up in Denton, TX and came to MTSU in 2012, where she met what she calls "the love of her life".
Lydia and Matthew love to have people over, and are very excited for this unique opportunity to serve the campus of MTSU and spread the Gospel to so many amazing students.
