Rebecca was born in Gwangju, South Korea. She was adopted as a baby by sweet, loving, Christian parents and moved around Minnesota and Arizona before settling down in South Carolina. She graduated summa cum laude from Erskine College with honors in Biology and minors in Chemistry, Psychology, and Spanish.
Rebecca has been involved with RUF since her freshman year. During her four years at Erskine, she relied on RUF for steady, solid community and spiritual growth. RUF was instrumental in an ever-growing adoration and understanding of the life and salvation that is found in Christ.
Through campus ministries such as RUF, Rebecca was trained and encouraged to minister to her fellow students through leadership, service, encouragement, listening, and other avenues. She depended on consistent Biblical teaching from large groups, small groups, and one-on-one meetings with her campus minister, interns, and peers to keep a clear perspective of the gospel.
In Rebecca's free time, she likes to play

Matt Vanderworp is a graduate of the University of Houston where he earned a bachelors degree in Music Education. Born and raised in Houston, TX, his love of the Lord is as big as the state itself! He was raised Catholic, but soon began a life-changing journey when he decided to go to a RUF bible study his freshmen year of college. Over the next 5 years, his life took a direction that eventually led him to apply for the RUF internship and enter into a life of vocational ministry.
Matt loves Jesus, music, and team building exercises. In that order. He loves to lead worship whenever he can and he loves to throw a frisbee or kick around a soccer ball.
