||The Taaffe Family, RUF Minister
Sam Taaffe, RUF Campus Minister
Sam is a native of Dublin, Ireland, but has lived most of his life in the Southeastern US. He attended the University of Georgia, and graduated in 2006. Upon graduating from college, Sam had the pleasure of serving as an RUF intern at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss). It was during this time that he met his future wife, Anne (a native of Lexington, KY and graduate of Auburn University), who was serving as the RUF intern at the University of Tennesse in Knoxville. After finishing up his internship at Ole Miss, Sam moved to Jackson, MS to attend Reformed Theological Seminary and work with college students at Millsaps College. Sam and Anne got married in June 2011, and have two boys, Finn (January-2013) and Charlie (June 2014). After Sam graduated from RTS with a Masters of Divinity, Sam and Anne moved back to Middle Tennessee in June 2013 to begin ministering at MTSU! When they are not at home or on campus you can find them hanging out with friends, playing and watching sports, playing board games or grilling out. Sam and Anne also love going to concerts and are hoping that the students at MTSU will help refine their taste in music.
