Rod has been working with InterVarsity for nearly 28 years. He has loved and served college students in Kansas, Colorado, and most recently New Mexico. His passionate interests include leading students in Scripture study, teaching students how to study Scripture, sharing the gospel with non-believers and having conversations about things that matter for eternity. He has been married for eleven years to Andrea Carson Pauls and they have a beautiful three year-old daughter named Mattea. Rod can often be found snuggling with his “bigger girl” and telling her stories of when he was in danger. Rod has seen the gospel of Luke change his life and also the lives of others and is eager to help Urbana participants make plans for how they will use this gospel to share Jesus with their non-believing friends.
