John Meinen

Hi! My name is John. I am the campus pastor for RUF at UVM. My wife and I love UVM and are grateful we get to love and serve this campus & community. Megan and I are proud parents to Willa (5 y/o daughter) and Fella (black lab). We love sharing meals with friends, watching anything good on Netflix, and playing outside. We would love to get to know you.

Sarah Jayne Kennelly

Sarah Jayne Kennelly was born and raised in Rochester, New York. She has spent the past four years in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina attending Appalachian State University, where she graduated with a degree in Art Education. At App State, she fostered her passion for photography, a love for the great outdoors, and a desire to serve and love others well. RUF was a huge part of Sarah Jayne's life at App State, and she is so excited to be moving back up north to work with RUF at the University of Vermont! She can't wait to learn how to snowboard, try every coffee shop in Burlington, and serve the students of UVM!
