Recent Update from Peter & Samantha Shaner with RUF @ Clemson

Fall Update 2020


We have moved to Clemson!!!!


We are officially South Carolina Residents! With your generosity and the Lord’s blessings, we have raised the necessary funds that allowed us to begin working with students on campus. We moved in about 2 weeks ago and I have already been able to be a part of large group, small groups, and staff meetings. It has been fun getting to know the students and have them come up to us and say that they are glad we are here. 

To ensure the safety of the staff members and the students, things are being done a little different. For me, the semester will consist of a lot of one on one meetings with students, which will help to begin building relationships. I will, along with Reid, be involved in the leadership development process which prepares students to lead small groups and build community. Lastly, I am really excited to be present and listen to the needs that exist within RUF, as well as on the Clemson campus. 

Sam and I already feel like Clemson is home. We are so excited to serve the Clemson community this year, and for years to come.

Again, thank you for being partners in this with us. As the year goes on you will see more updates from us via email. 



Quote From Student Leader on Large Group

"I found myself rejuvenated and filled with energy being able to worship together in-person and glorify God in what has only been six months but has felt much longer because of this difficult time that has now become our new reality. I was overwhelmed with joy walking to the front of the crowd and seeing familiar faces but also so many people I've never met. It was an indescribable feeling and in that moment, it reassured me that God is always at work even when our control is minuscule as ever."
Prayer Requests:
  • Pray for our adjustment into the Clemson church community and into the RUF family.
  • Pray for Sam to find a job that she is passionate about.
  • Prayers for thanksgiving for an earlier-than-anticipated move to Clemson and the opportunity to meet with kids in person under the COVID guidelines.
We could not do ANY of this without YOU. Thank you for your faithful prayers and generous financial support which allows us to minister to these students in this very strange time of their lives. 

We are so grateful for your ministry TO us and WITH us.
