The Horne family serve with Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) at Appalachian State University. Chris is from Byron, GA and came to faith through the ministry of RUF at Georgia Southern University. After college, Chris met Sara, a Pennsylvania girl, at the Savannah College of Art & Design, where he was interning for RUF and she was studying textile design. After seminary (and a few detours), the Hornes, now joined by daughters Georgia, Bonnie and Rosemary, came up the mountain to beautiful Boone, NC. They love doing life and ministry as a family with App State students.

Brett Joseph & Carissa Waller | Interns


The RUF internship is a unique two year year experience that allows a recent college graduate the opportunity to work alongside an RUF campus minister. They focus their time on caring for first-year students and those on the fringe of campus. We love our interns, Brett and Carissa!

Brett Joseph is from Fredericksburg, VA and graduate of James Madison University. He believes (wrongly) that Beyoncé is overrated. Carissa Waller is from Nashville, TN and a graduate of Western Kentucky University. She does not like marshmallows. They would love to hang out with you! You can contact Brett at brett.joseph@ruf.org and 540.623.7628. Carissa is at carissa.waller@ruf.org and 615.337.5113.
