Campus Minister: 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. Nathan loves meeting new people, running and working out, playing golf, anything outdoors, travel and good music. Ask him more about himself over coffee at Pavement Coffeehouse...
Campus Staffer: Chet Bickhart
A native to Philadelphia, Chet’s desire to grow as a Christian began while attending Deerfoot Lodge, a Christian outdoor camp. During his younger years as a camper, Chet learned how to sail and live in the wild, but also learned about Jesus and the gospel. Professing faith as a junior in high school, Chet went on to attend and graduate from Lehigh University, receiving degrees in mechanical engineering and finance while competing on the rowing team and leading an athletic bible study. Chet works well in entrepreneurial settings, loves meeting new people, and can never spend too much time in the outdoors.
Campus Staffer: Serena Jones
Serena grew up in the small town of Akron, Pennsylvania with her parents and five siblings. She graduated with a B.S. in Early Childhood Education from Millersville University in May of 2018. Serena became involved with RUF on Millersville's campus and saw great growth in her faith, relationship with Jesus, and community through her four years of being involved. The internship presents an exciting opportunity for Serena to continue working in ministry, as she has been heavily involved in youth ministry for the past four years. Serena loves to sing and play music, play board games, drink coffee, and have deep conversations with friends. She is looking forward to building relationships in Boston and being challenged to grow in all areas of life.
