College Students

Reformed University Fellowship (RUF)

Hope Presbyterian Church is associated with RUF, a college ministry that reaches students for Christ and equips them to serve. We have a large group service every Tuesday night, Bible studies, fun events, and service projects. To get involved with RUF,  you can contact Katelyn Spallinger or Andrew Whitaker (see contact info below) or join our GroupMe by clicking here! Scroll through the photos  to see some of our events!


RUF Staff
Katelyn was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA. After attending Geneva College in Western PA, she moved to Pittsburgh to start a job with the CCO (Coalition for Christian Outreach) doing campus ministry at Point Park University. She and her husband Patrick (who is also from Philly) were married in 2019. Pat is a professional frelance orchestral musician (double bass). The bass program at IU brought he and Katelyn to Bloomington! Katelyn is excited to be continuing work in campus ministry, now with RUF at IU. In her free time, Katelyn enjoys getting together with friends at coffee shops and movie nights at home.

Andrew is from the south side of Indianapolis and is married to Christianna. They have three beautiful children, Vivian (9), Charlie (6), and Elaina (2)! Andrew and Christianna met while students at Moody Bible Institute, married in 2010 and then headed off to Covenant seminary where Andrew completed his Master's of Divinity.  Andrew was ordained in 2016 and has served as an Assistant pastor at two PCA churches.
