Welcome to RUF at Tulane! We aim both to reach Tulane students for Christ and to equip them to serve. How? Because we believe that Jesus is the embodiment of love and the hope of the world, we seek to reveal to one another His love, that we may rest in it and be conformed to it.
Josiah is from Charlottesville, VA. He attended UVA (wahoowa!) and Covenant Seminary in Saint Louis. He met Kelley in Saint Louis, a Saint Louis native and graduate of Mizzou, and convinced her to marry him and to leave the Midwest for New Orleans. Kelley teaches at Carver High School (go rams!). They have a big furry family member named Scout, and another tiny non-furry family member will have a birthday when the Fall semester begins. Josiah loves lawn games, local establishments, legendary adventures, and logophilia.
Alison was born and raised in the beautiful city of Denver, CO. She recently graduated from Texas Christian University where she studied Studio Art and Religion, but also learned a whole lot about good food, campus activities, and the great state of Texas. Alison became involved with RUF her freshman year and found a sweet community and an understanding of the Gospel that was transformational in her life. Alison is quite excited to become a resident of New Orleans; she is even more excited to serve Christ and walk alongside Tulane students through the ups and downs of college life. You’ll often find her on a walk, drinking coffee, painting, or contemplating her next joke to overuse.
