Campus Pastor

Ron-and-Nancy-Rude.gif
Pastor Ron Rude ("PR") came to LCM-UA in Fall 2001. He is married to Nancy, who works for Habitat for Humanity. They have two grown daughters, Angela (Social Worker in Indianapolis) and Jen (Campus Pastor at Pacific Lutheran University-Tacoma WA).

Besides being enthused by college ministry, PR's interests include mountain and desert hiking, Earth science, playing music (drums, piano, guitar), and studying American history through the lives of the 44 US presidents (he's a bit of a general presidential historian).

He has traveled on LCM student trips to Palestine/Israel (Steps of Jesus), Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico, Guatemala, Haiti, Germany (Steps of Martin Luther), and Thailand (inter-faith learning), as well as personal trips to England, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Nepal, Greece and Turkey (Steps of St. Paul).

He regularly teaches classes on "Science, Theology, and Sustainability" and "Presidential History" through the Univ. of AZ's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (for residents in the Tuscon community).

PR's door is always open. Stop by for conversation, counseling/discussion, or just to talk about your day. You are always WELCOME ... especially when the going gets rough, as it does every so often in college. It's nice to have a listening ear. Ron has two.  rhrude47@yahoo.com
