Justin Smith is a native Texan originally from Arlington. He initially got involved with RUF as an undergrad at Belmont University from which he graduated in 2007. After graduating and several odd jobs later (including working as a pre-school teacher, line cook, and landscaper) Justin met his wife Kathryn (a Vanderbilt grad and RUF intern) at RUF’s summer conference in 2010. A year later they were married and moved to Atlanta where Justin completed seminary at RTS Atlanta. Justin started with RUF at UNT in 2017, and coming from an extensive musical background UNT has been a great fit. Justin and Kathryn both love RUF and are excited about serving the students at UNT. They also enjoy music, trying new foods, day hikes, having folks in their home, and the Texas Rangers (especially Adrian Beltre). In March 2018 they also welcomed their beautiful daughter, Vivian Elaine to their home!
