Outreach & Missions

Each and every day, we are called to live as ambassadors for Christ as we seek to love our neighbors as ourselves. Whether we’re equipping parents to love and lead their children, equipping our community with Gospel truth through Good News Club, or equipping Clemson Community Care with food for local families in need, our motivation is love — love for our God and love for our neighbor.


Our vision statement is steeped in the language of community:

By God’s grace and for His glory we want to impact our community and the world by raising up countless university students and community members who are transformed by the Gospel and serving others.

As the Gospel transforms us and as we begin to see how God has provided for us — a needy and sinful people — we are motivated by grace to love the community in which He has placed us. According to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus, He has supplied all of our needs. (Philippians 4:19) And out of this abundance to us, He enables us to supply the spiritual and physical needs of others.

nathan dicks

Rev. Nathan Dicks, a Southerner by birth, has been the Campus Minister with RUF at Boston University since 2014, the same year he married his wife, Sarah, who was born and raised in the Boston area. Nathan studied architecture at Clemson University, planning to follow in his dad's footsteps as an architect until the financial collapse of 2008 sent him in a different direction. Realizing his love for studying and teaching the Bible to college students, he ministered at the University of Sarajevo, Bosnia for two years then moved back to the States to enroll in Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary outside of Boston where he graduated with a Masters of Divinity.

hank & ANNA UZZELL

Hank and Anna joined staff with Cru in 2008 and have enjoyed ministering to college students since then! We have been serving in Clemson since February of 2011. Hank spends the majority of his time doing evangelism and discipleship. Hank also uses the outdoors as a vehicle to minister to students in a little bit different way. Anna helps our ministry by doing behind the scenes work and helping host students in our home. Our heart for college students has grown over the years and we enjoy our work so much!
