    RUF Wisconsin-Milwaukee


    Wisconsin’s first chapter of Reformed University Fellowship began at UWM in 2012. Nick and Maddy moved to Milwaukee to take over this work in 2019. RUF is the campus ministry of the Presbyterian Church in America and seeks to reach students for Christ and equip them to serve the Church for a lifetime.

     

    Nick’s approach to that mission involves preaching at RUF’s “Large Group” on Tuesday nights, various small groups to deepen students’ capacity for reading Scripture and loving one another, and one-on-one discipleship over coffee or a round of disc golf. The Bratchers also intentionally open their home to students, situated within a few blocks of campus, as a lived witness to God’s grace.

     

    For more information or to donate, please visit RUF at UWM’s website at www.ruf.org/uwm or e-mail Nick at nick.bratcher@ruf.org

    Ratio Christi

    Geoff and Ariel Johns work in Green Bay, Wisconsin as missionaries with the campus apologetics alliance called “Ratio Christi” (Latin for ‘The Reason of Christ’). RC is a global movement that equips university students, high school students, and faculty to give historical, philosophical, and scientific reasons for following Jesus Christ. Bringing together faith and reason to establish the intellectual voice of Christ in the University, Ratio Christi is planting student and faculty-led apologetics clubs at universities around the world. Students, engaged in the battle for the mind, learn to defend God's existence, the reliability of the Bible, and the fact of Christ’s resurrection. RC seeks to foster a renaissance of Christian thinking in the university and the local church.  Geoff and Ariel are in the process of launching a chapter at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay.

  • Sinnard Family

    Grace and Peace Church Plant

    Ben and Kara Sinnard moved to Oconomowoc from Waukesha after serving 7 years as the Associate Pastor at Cornerstone Church in Delafield to plant Grace & Peace Oconomowoc.  Previously Ben served as an Assistant Pastor in Lincoln, NE and before that as a Campus Director with the Navigators. They began gathering a core team and reaching out to the community in the fall of 2020 and began worship in late January of 2021.  In a community that is rapidly growing and is nearly the halfway point between the two largest cities in Wisconsin, Oconomowoc, is situated to be a perfect place to plant a church geared toward young families.  Grace & Peace has found a niche within the worship styles of Oconomowoc as a modern liturgical church that is warm and welcoming.  With a vision to welcome neighbors and build a gospel community, Grace and Peace hopes to see the gospel flourish to the good of Oconomowoc and the glory of God. G&P is filled with stories of people wrestling in their faith, learning to trust God, and beginning to deepen their worship.  Thanks for supporting the work God is doing in Oconomowoc!

  • THE VILJOEN FAMILY

    Jason and Lisa serve at an orphan ministry in South Africa called Door of Hope. This ministry rescues and cares for abandoned babies, works closely with adoption agencies to find them good Christian families, and disciples them in the gospel of Jesus Christ.  

     

    Door of Hope is in the process of building and developing a Children’s Village – a Christ-centered community – where orphans who do not end up getting adopted may find love and belonging.  At the Village these children will be raised in the faith and learn of their promised redemption in Christ and of his good purposes for their lives.  

     

    The story of the gospel is the story of a God who has sought out his children who were once orphans in the world and adopted them into his family.  Jason and Lisa’s greatest desire for the orphans who come to Door of Hope is not only that they would be adopted into a loving earthly family, but that they would encounter their loving Heavenly Father and be adopted into His family as well.
