RUF Campus Minister
University of Texas
John grew up in Tuscumbia, AL and attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. (He will be quick to inform you that Vanderbilt maintains an all-time winning record against UT in football games...2-1...but still!) After graduating from Vanderbilt in 2007, John married his college sweetheart Chrissy, an Austin, TX native. Chrissy worked as an RUF intern at NC State. Afterwards, the two of them moved to Houston, TX where John served as a youth pastor at Christ the King Presbyterian Church for 6 years. The Trapps have four children: Owen, Lucy, Georgia and Betsy. Some common family activities include talking, reading, dancing, golfing, and eating Chickfila.
