Hello from RUF WashU! We are a WashU community exploring and experiencing the gospel together, and loving the campus out of the good news in Jesus through life-giving events and fellowship.
Tim Price grew up in Austin, TX where he developed a love for breakfast tacos and playing music. He became a Christian after high school and immediately felt a call on his life to pursue ministry. For undergrad, he attended Belmont University in Nashville, TN and graduated with a BA in Religion and the Arts. Tim did RUF at Belmont and found it to be a place where he grew in his knowledge of Christ’s love for him. He also met his wife Rachel at Belmont while on a study abroad trip in Spain, and they married in December 2014. Tim decided to pursue ministry by becoming an RUF intern. He worked in NYC as the RUF intern for three years. This experience further confirmed his call to ministry and particularly college students. He and Rachel moved to St. Louis in the summer of 2017 so that he could attend Covenant Seminary and receive his Masters of Divinity. Tim loves watching premier league soccer, playing any board games, and going on walks in the park with his wife, his friends, and his dog.
Kristen and her husband Alex moved to St. Louis in the summer of 2016 for Alex to attend grad school at Saint Louis University while Kristen went on staff with RUF at Wash-U. Before coming to Wash-U, Kristen was an RUF intern at Texas A&M for two years. She and Alex met through RUF at Mississippi State University and are both so thankful for the impact this ministry had on their lives. The Thompsons enjoy any and all sports, both watching and playing, as well as getting together with family or playing games with friends. With both of them born and raised in the south, they are enjoying their first taste of mid-western life in St. Louis!

Kathryn spent one half of her childhood in Covington, GA and the other half in her father's hometown of Stanley, NC. She graduated from UNC Chapel Hill in 2019 with a major in English. Kathryn joined RUF as a freshman and reluctantly became a part of the leadership team as a sophomore because her intern told her there would be brownies at the interest meeting. Her interns and campus minister deeply impacted her, and RUF was a place where she learned that she could be broken and vulnerable and still deeply loved. She is excited to love students at WashU as she has been loved. Kathryn enjoys hiking, reading public domain books, and making feline friends.
Noah graduated in 2018 from Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee, where his family has lived since 2007. He studied Religious Studies and Philosophy as an undergrad, with hopes of pursuing more education after he finishes the RUF internship. Noah is passionate about Memphis and refugee and immigrant issues. He loves hanging out with his friends and playing board games and party games, especially Mafia. As someone with a lot of pride in his city, he's excited to make St. Louis his home and find all the weird and wonderful things that make it a unique city!
