Campus Minister Bio:
Mark Ashbaugh serves as RUF campus minister at Winthrop University and is pleased to call Rock Hill, SC home. Originally from Columbus, Ohio, his adult years have been spent steadily moving south. The first stop was Virginia Tech, where he devoted time to studying Communications, leading Young Life, and cheering on the Hokies. After graduation, Mark resided two years in Asia with Young Life International, teaching English and sharing the Gospel. Back in the states and still heading south, Mark moved to Charlotte where he received a Masters of Divinity from Reformed Theological Seminary in May 2013. Soon after, Mark accepted a call as Assistant Pastor at Bethel Church in Clover, SC and was ordained in November 2013.
Mark met his wife, Katherine, in college. Katherine has also been working her way south, growing up in Harrisburg, PA. She served as an MTW intern in Dublin, Ireland and holds a Masters in Biblical Studies from RTS Charlotte. The Ashbaugh's have two children, Julia ('09) and John ('12), and are expecting a third this fall. They are thrilled to be back on the college campus ministering to Winthrop students.
