Lucas Dourado

Lucas grew up in New Jersey, and then attended Wake Forest University and Covenant Theological Seminary. He has been campus minister at UConn since Fall 2011. He and his wife Maggie have been married since March 2012, and they have a daughter, Margot, who was born in August 2014 and a son, Asher, who was born in March 2017.

Taylor Gumm

Taylor is from Marin Country, California, just 30 minutes away from where he attended college at U.C. Berkeley. In his time at Berkeley as a Sociology major, he found RUF, where the good news of God’s grace in Jesus became real to him. RUF was the highlight of his college years as he made lifelong friendships and unforgettable memories. Taylor loves anything involving sports or his friends. Dancing, live music, spicy wing challenges and studying German are other things he enjoys. He is excited to be serving at the University of Connecticut, where he hopes to help students experience the same love and community he did through RUF.

Sophie Rooks

Sophie was raised in both Arlington and Charlottesville, Virginia, and is third of four siblings. She graduated from James Madison University with a B.A. in Communication Studies and a minor in Chinese language. While pursuing these various academic endeavors, Sophie spent a majority of time with RUF. During her four years in RUF, Sophie learned more about the importance of the body of Christ and her reliance on the Gospel. With the encouragement from her RUF staff, Cayla, since her freshman year and a longing to speak about Jesus to others, Sophie accepted the RUF Internship in 2020.

When Sophie is not watching The Office (U.S.), she is probably hanging out at a local coffee shop, and is hoping for someone to launch into a conversation about life. She also enjoys reading, hiking, running, going on walks to watch ducks, watching shows she’s already seen, starting crafts she will inevitably give up, crying to underrated Disney/Pixar films, obsessing over Exodus, and giving Cayla Sherrell credit for this bio.
