After traveling the world with FCA, California native Roxanne Rutt felt called to join the ministry's staff and facilitate the same kind of powerful ministry she'd experienced for herself as an athlete at Fresno State University. As a cross country runner for the Bulldogs, Rutt had surrendered her life to Christ through FCA and saw firsthand what God could do in and through groups of competitors who were committed to serving Him.
After graduating from Fresno State, Rutt traveled to Italy to participate in an FCA internship through which she learned more about the power of sports ministry. She returned to Fresno and for the next two years, Rutt began looking for opportunities with FCA. She was offered her first position on staff as an area representative in Rochester, NY, helping break new ground and expand FCA's reach in the Northeast Region of the US.
Rutt served 3 years on staff with FCA in Rochester before she relocated to Jacksonville, FL with her husband. In her current position as Campus Representative at Jacksonville University, Rutt engages, equips and empowers student athletes and leaders desiring to grow in Christ and share His love on campus at JU.
Outside of FCA, Rutt enjoys being wife to Clayton and mommy to Piper. She also enjoys baking, line dancing, long boarding, and playing in any kind of pick-up game.
Her life verse is "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing, and perfect will." Romans 12:2
