Welcome to RUF at Trinity University! RUF is a Christian community on campus that seeks to love God, love others, and love Trinity. If you're a Christian we invite you to join us as we seek to grow deeper in the grace of Jesus. If you're curious about Christianity, we invite you to join us as you explore the claims of Christ. Everyone is welcome regardless of personal or religious background. Wherever you find yourself with respect to the claims of Christianity--convinced, unconvinced, or unsure--we would love for you to join us!
Wil (short for 'Wilson') grew up in Tupelo, MS and attended the University of Mississippi, where he majored in English and was actively involved in RUF as a student. After college, Wil interned with RUF at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. He also met his wife Mary Jett, who attended UNC and was an RUF intern at the College of William and Mary. After getting married in 2012, the Nettletons stuck around North Carolina for a couple of years before moving to Jackson, MS in 2014 for Wil to start seminary. Wil graduated from Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson with an M.Div in May, 2017, and the Nettletons moved to San Antonio in June, 2017 for Wil to start serving as the RUF Campus Minister at Trinity University. Long story short--they love RUF. The Nettletons have one son (Cooper, born in 2018). If you are a Trinity student, they would love to buy you lunch or coffee and get to know you better!
Lucy grew up in Indianapolis, IN in a downtown neighborhood where she could walk to work, church, and school. She graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Fibers Department. (What the heck is a fiber? Great conversation starter. Ask her.) She was actively involved with RUF throughout her time at IU and loved being able to ask questions, learn, worship (and laugh) alongside her fellow Hoosiers. Lucy had the privilege of being a co-founder of We Are, a movement of students on IU's campus seeking racial reconciliation through a gospel lens. She's is a big fan of puzzles, friends, stories, and cooking without a recipe. She is, however, rather challenged by multi-tasking. So maybe only one at a time.
