Brad Tubbesing, Campus Minister

Both Brad and wife, Caroline were born and raised in St. Louis, MO. The two became high school sweethearts, dated through college, while Brad attended Miami University in Ohio and Caroline, The University of Missouri-Columbia, and were married immediately following. They have 3 beautiful daughters, 1 handsome son, and a black lab named Gunner. Brad received a Master of Divinity from Covenant Theological Seminary in December, 2006 and was ordained in the PCA in July, 2007.  After graduating from seminary the Tubbesings moved to Huntsville, AL to begin a new RUF ministry at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH). Seeing God begin and grow the ministry of RUF at UAH was an amazing experience. So much so, that they moved to Bloomington in 2012 to begin an RUF ministry at IU and to help start Hope Presbyterian Church. They enjoy having students in their home and would love to get to know you!

Matthias Lind, Intern

Born in the wilderness of the Chicago suburbs, Matthias was raised alongside his trusty brother and fanatical dog by his faithful and loving parents. He graduated from The University of Wisconsin Milwaukee by way of Marquette University with a degree in Civil Engineering. Shortly before completing his degree in engineering, Matthias felt the urge, nay, the need to pursue ministry and accepted a position with RUF as an intern on the campus of Indiana University. Matthias enjoys Mexican food, hipster music, bicycles, rock climbing, skiing, and lives with an undying affection for the sport of hockey. He also suffers from a crippling addiction to high end coffee.
